5 Best Weighted Blankets of 2021

Weighted blankets provide extra pressure that act like a hug, which may benefit people, both adults and children, with conditions like insomnia, anxiety, autism, among others. A weighted blanket is generally smaller than traditional ones because it’s designed to cover your body, not your bed.

What Customers Are Saying

I purchased this for my son. He frequently twitches himself awake, so after a lot of reading and research, I invested in this blanket for him. He absolutely LOVES IT! He appears to be getting really good, solid rest as the twitching is minimized under the weight of this blanket. He has always tried to cocoon himself in his sheets and blankets, so I wish I’d invested in one a long time ago.

What Customers Are Saying

For several years now I have had trouble sleeping. I tend to wake up at least 6 times a night and it takes me up to an hour to fall asleep even if I’m tired. I find that when I use the weighted blanket I wake up less often and I fall asleep faster. I also tend to have a lot of nightmares for some reason as well, but that has also decreased since using the blanket.
