We received a sample.
My entire family struggles with some form of anxiety. My husband and son experience it to the point where it affects their sleep. My son, well at night he gets upset about what happened during the day and then compounds all of it and will cry. He just has so much trouble shutting his mind down and not worrying himself into a frenzy. So we were really excited when we were offered the review of the Weighted blanket that is supposed to help with anxiety. And It seems to be helping him some. Mostly I would say, he gets into a funk and doesn’t want to be alone. He does love his new weighted blanket though.
Weighted Blanket Benefits:
If you are wondering what size to choose Weighting Comforts has a size chart to help you pick the right size. The ideal blanket weight is 10% of your body weight. When in between sizes, we recommend going down. Many of their customers find the 15 lb blanket to be the right weight.
How is a blanket made and what is it made of?
Each Weighting Comforts blanket is handmade by a refugee woman in Nashville, Tennessee, creating income for her family. They use high quality 100% cotton fabric and 100% polyester thread for added strength and durability. The weighted beads inside each 5” pocket are made from an FDA-approved, non-irritating PVC compound.
How and why does an a weighted blanket help?
This weighted blanket is designed to improve your sleep and reduce your anxiety for year-round comfort. Many people experience a deeper and more restful sleep on the first night. Others find the blanket’s weight restrictive at first, but after several nights grow to love the effect of the weight.
Miles found it to be very odd at first. But he loved that I got it for him. It was special to him and when we went on vacation he wanted to bring it with him. I just didn’t need that extra weight in the suitcase, but I was tempted to let him since he has identified with it.
It works like a deep tissue massage, similar to the effect of a dentist’s lead blanket, releasing serotonin throughout your body to help you calm down and relax.
