My son loves anything weighted. The more pressure the happier he is. I started looking at weighted blankets and was not finding anything that I could afford for the size and weight he is (now 15, 5'6") and he also flips and flops at night and I didn't know how I could anchor it so he would stay under it. So a couple of years ago we came up with something that worked just as well. (This might work for you folks with kids wanting to sleep with you as they may be seeking that pressure of sharing the bed) Robert now uses what we call the "Worm Bed" -- I went to the fabric store and bought about 10 yards of Tubed Ribbing fabric -- it is a continous tube of fabric. I then took it home -- stretched it over his twin size mattress & fitted sheet (I use anchors to hold sheet through the sliding process) and then I tie a big knot at the end of the mattress. He then crawls in the top and is cozy as a bug. I had one parent that had a double bed who sewed two tubes together to fit. Works GREAT and he sleeps much better at night!

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
