DEEP TOUCH PRESSURE
The science behind weighted blankets is called Deep Touch Pressure (DTP). DTP is simply distributed weight across the body. If you'd like to read more about the natural benefits of DTP, we wrote a guide to it here.
DTP releases serotonin in the body which turns into melatonin, as well as decreased nervous system activity. These combine to give a feeling of calm, relaxation and naturally improved sleep. If you'd like to dive into the studies about weighted blankets and the science behind them, we wrote an article on it here.

My child has ASD and loves to seek out as much sensory input as possible. This weighted blanket was perfect. The ultimate calming sensation for him during moments of distress for him.
We bought this for our almost 4-year-old, and he loves it. The quality is great, and the blanket itself is super soft and cute.
I got this for my son who just turned 9 - loved the idea of a weighted blanket for him but this one is too small...based on their weight guide I got him a 7lb blanket he weighs 60lbs...it barely covers his feet so I have to go to his room and adjust the blanket after he falls asleep and he still wakes up with it between his legs because it’s not very wide either. Don’t waist your money on the kids one I am about to return mine after 7 days and it not getting any better. I worry the twin bed one will be too heavy but I would try that over the kids.
I weigh 110 pounds. 15 pounds was the lightest weight blanket that was available. I decided to give it a shot, since my body structure is bone and muscle. I am very strong. Surprisingly, when it was laid out completely flat, it didn’t provide enough pressure for me. Folding it in half didn’t give me enough either. So, I fold in quarters and drape it over my shoulder and my back while I’m laying on my side and it helps me stay asleep, because I feel like I am being held. That’s what I needed. I chose four stars instead of 5, because I needed more pressure than the 15 pounds provided.
Not sure if it will help my son fall asleep faster yet, but he definitely loves it! He asks for it regularly and says it’s soooo cozy! It’s got a high price tag, but we’re glad we purchased it. 😁
