This blanket is amazing! I suffer from anxiety and it flares up a lot at night. I was a little worried about buying this because I am not a fan of being held too tight or being restrained but I must admit I love it!. The cover that comes with the weighted blanket is perfect. It has two sides a soft cozy side and the cozy minky fabric in the other, so you can use whichever side you prefer
After about a week of use, I definitely fall asleep a lot faster and stay asleep during the night. Using it without the cover now and just sheets on bed because of the summer heat -- but blanket is not hot.
I bought this for my grandson who has autism and a sensory disorder. We will have to see how it will works when he gets upset. Hopefully, it'll help him feel safe and secure.
We discovered that my 17 year old son may have some sensory processing issues and on a hunch I purchased this blanket for him. Since then I have noticed he is more engaging, overall in a better, happier mood, and things that are stressing him out are not affecting him at the same level (as far as I can tell).
This blanket is amazing. I have gotten my mom, my daughter, my son, and my puppy to feel its calming effects. I no longer wake at two am and toss and turn. I go to sleep and wake up in the morning. One side effect I have noticed is that I have (and remember) dreams. This is huge because before I wondered why I could never remember my dreams.
Worth the money. I've been looking to get a weighted blanket for a while and decided to give this one a try. I sleep on my side mostly and was concerned that the weights would shift, however, I was pleasantly surprised that they stay in place when I sleep this way. The quality is also great as well. The actual blanket is very durable. I would recommend this blanket, I am very happy with it.
We purchased this blanket for our teenage daughter who struggles with anxiety and often can't sleep through the night. She told us that she slept through the night the first night she received the blanket! She uses it when she reads, studies, watching t.v. and sometimes will have it on her lap at the dinner table. It has been a huge help in allowing her to take control of calming herself.The fabric is soft and velvety to the touch.
This was purchased for myself...female, adult. It became distressing to wake up at 3AM every morning, for no reason at all. With this weighted blanket I sleep peacefully through the night. Laying down and pulling the blanket up is such a soothing, safe, and comforting feeling. Very well made blanket. Thank you !
