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 the, we wrote an article on it here.

My son with mild Aspergers loves his blanket - he has become very reliant on it and there is no question it helps with getting any staying asleep although I’m not quite sure what we do in hot weather or when he travels anywhere! Two points, attaching it to the cover is difficult initially and I don’t know if the ribbons will hold the weight.
Ps Giving a five star rating as the default is a bit questionable if you want objective ratings 😉
I bought this blanket for my son 4 years ago, He is on the Autism spectrum and one of his therapist mentioned about how a weighted blanket could help with a lot of sensory issues he was dealing at the time, one being able to calm himself down and also helped him sleep better. Even do it's been a long time since I have this blanket, still looks new, the material is of very good quality, my son actually took the blanket to school every day for a year took it home on the weekends to get it wash. Now everyone in my family uses it whenever we are watching tv in the living room!!
We bought for our 9yo son, who can get nervous at bedtime about being alone and in the dark. It�s like having an extra parent on hand, to snuggle him to sleep. It�s so soft, he wants it as his first layer, underneath sheet, so it�s touching his skin. He brings it downstairs when we watch movies as a family and missed it on a recent vacation. He falls asleep so quickly too! Our other child struggles with falling asleep and we�re exploring buying a second blanket for him to use.
Not easy to clean. Whatever is in the weight pockets smell horrible.
Love this for my son! He won�t sleep without it.
