    Frequently Asked Questions about Weighted Blankets

    How Heavy Should My Weighted Blanket Be?

    The rule of thumb for a weighted blanket is to be 10% of your body weight, plus a pound or two. So for a 60-pound child, our 7-pound blanket would work best. Click here to see our heavier blanket options.

    What Are the Dimensions of the Blankets?




    What is the Science Behind Weighted Blankets?

    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

    Who Do Weighted Blankets Work for?

    Weighted blankets have historically been used for those with special needs, commonly referred to as autism blankets. However, they are beneficial to most people. Especially people who suffer from sleep issues.

    If you'd like to dive into the benefits of weighted blankets for specific people, we have some articles covering that here:

    Some families have used our weighted blankets for toddlers. We recommend the user be at least 2 years and up before using a toddler weighted blanket.

    Weighted Blanket

    Bought a weighted blanket for my 3yr old nephew and I love it. He feels extra comfort. It also helps him sleep better.

    Worth the money for sure!

    Super warm and durable. Helped my son sleep a bit better.

    Great quality with superb insulation.

    Plush texture and good insulation.Must say a right decision to purchase one ,the quality & warmth is undoubtedly the best.

    soft and heavy

    I got it for my 6 y.o. daughter to get through stressful period of moving and changing school.I love that it is soft as normal blanket and the cover is super cute. You only notice that it is heavy when you need to lift the whole thing. You don't feel any beads in it.It is well made and very cosy. I had to wash it, and it washes well. Now my second child wants one too. And I'd love to have an adult option to be honest:)I only wish I'd get a bigger size, it looks like my girl will outgrow it soon. But for 2-3 y.o. it would be perfect and would last for years.

    So soft and snuggly

    This blanket has so many things I look for in a blanket for my kids. It's super soft, very high priority. I love that it has a removable cover for easy washing. The only thing I was disappointed with first off was that I had to knot the cover to the blanket, i'm worried it will be a pain for washing it, wish it had buttons or two ties to make a bow. We've just used it a couple nights. Im hoping it makes a difference for my little ADHD sleeper.
