Of all the things we have to accommodate my son, there is one thing that we can't live without: his Hug Chair!!
This is a giant, specially made high-quality microfiber pillow that conforms to his body and gives him a supportive and comforting squeeze. It is extremely helpful for those with Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Lupus, Fibromyalgia and more.
You can order a second microfiber cover (I highly recommend this!), so any spills or accidents can be remedied with a quick throw in the washing machine. This company will also send you free foam for when your child grows into an adult...allowing for a lifelong use of your hug chair!! My son also jumps repeatedly on the pillow when flat. The thing is nearly indestructible!! It's surprisingly affordable, even with the extra cover.
