Dreamland Baby: Who Are They?

Tara Williams came up with the idea of creating weighted blankets made especially for toddlers when she happened to place a heavy blanket on her fussy and grumpy six-month-old baby, Luke, who immediately calmed down and fell asleep. After being able to get a good night’s sleep for the first time in quite some time, Tara decided that a weighted blanket is exactly what every parent needed to ensure that their child was comfortable, cozy, and most importantly, happy.

Mom & dad, this one's for you from @helpingbabiessleep: "Oh how times have changed! 🤯❤️ How are you managing? How are you balancing the desire to stay up after the kids are asleep to have a little you time with the need to get more sleep? 💥Sometimes I find myself watching stupid TV and I ask myself, "how is this show adding any value to my life?". I find that helps me get out of the trance of sitting there postponing going to bed. ⏰⏰ I also keep a sleep schedule for myself so that my body is used to going to bed at the same time every night and wakes naturally the same time every day. The waking up part is hard to control when you have little ones so that one will evolve over time but the bedtime part you can do. ❤️ Sometimes we feel guilty prioritizing going to bed over spending time with our spouses and it doesn't feel good. I'm here to remind you that getting your sleep is an important pillar of your health. And can you rethink date night? Can it be time during the weekend instead? Doesn't feel as sexy to have a date during the day but it can be a great way to marry sleep and couple time.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Any secrets to share?"⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy Friday! Some food for thought as we head into the weekend and consider all things sleep related. 🌙

On the internet, she found options for adults, children, and even pets, but nothing for toddlers, so she took it upon herself to provide for them and built Dreamland Baby. With safety being her topmost priority, she collaborated with pediatricians, NICU nurses, and Certified Sleep Consultants in order to design her products and make sure that it is perfected.

Dreamland Baby: What Do They Do?

The company offers wearable weighted blankets or Weighted Sacks that swaddle a toddler and gives them the warmth and comfort of human touch. The pure cotton sacks are only weighted on the front with non-toxic beads and have two-way zippers that allow parents to have easy access when they need to change diapers. The lightweight of the blanket enables the baby to stand, sit, and roll-over without any issues as well.

By providing sensory integration and deep-touch pressure, the blankets increase serotonin and melatonin while decreasing cortisol in the baby, which soothes their anxiety and calms them for longer. It’s basically a hug for the baby. The company offers just this single product but in three different sizes, making them 0 to 22-month-old infants.

Their smallest size is 26″ from shoulder to toe, which is for 0-6 month 8 lbs and up infants, followed by the 30″ blanket for 15 lbs and up 6 to 12-month-old, and finally, their biggest size is 34″ shoulder to toe sack especially designed for infants weighing 20 lbs and up aged between 12-22 months.
