Can someone recommend a place to get a weighted blanket for a tall 2 year old?

Id like it to be large enough that it will last a while.

Id also prefer a canadian company (because I HATE customs and broker fees), but its not totally necessary.

I gave her my heavy cotton blanket this week while her fuzzy fleece was in the wash and Ive noticed how much better shes sleeping.

Thanks!

My OT suggested that, if we didn't want to spend the money yet (which we can't/don't) we could fill a king size pillowcase with beans or rice and sew it up at the top. It can leak over time, but it's a start, especially if you're not sure your little one will use one.

ETA: the issue with one like this is that there is nothing that keeps the weight evenly distributed, but you could sew it into sections (my husband SWEARS he is going to make one like this for dd!).
