    Best is the ones from hippo Hug. They do loans if you want to test it out. My kids didn't like them.

    I bought this weighted blanket and used it for a week. Didn't find it to do anything. Selling it for $50 if anyone wants

    I bought exactly the same blanket for insomnia, but it didn't help and it wasn't for me, ended up returning it, but I paid like $160 for mine..


    They seem to be hit or miss for people, some people love them. I think it would of been a lot better if i used it in the winter time, it got pretty warm under it.

    I prefer a rubber blanket for resistance sleeping.

    That's actually a thing for much the same purpose as the weighted blankets. Well, not rubber, but a stretchy material. Sort of the same calming effect as swaddling a baby. Again, hit or miss. The stretchy sheets are cheaper than the weighted ones usually although harder to find.

    Weighted with what? What’s the point of it?

    They are filled with either plastic or glass beads to give them weight, and stitched into squares so the weight stays even.

    They help some people sleep, and some people say it helps them with Anxiety and Insomnia. The idea behind it is the soothing feeling you can experience with various forms of compression (like a hug or similar). The blankets are usually 15-25lbs.

    Does nothing for me personally, but some people really like them.

    Glass beads. Uses https://www.sensacalm.com/blogs/news...lanket-therapy

    My wife tried one in our room in Vegas, she liked how it made her feel warmer and more tucked in, I'd get one for her but I don't think it can compete with her heating blanket.

    I don't see how the 2 blankets would conflict if you stacked them

    Anxiety, autism and other sensory disorders are rhe common reason people buy them. But some "neuro-typical" people find them soothing too.

    Not conflict, just overkill. Her heating blanket knocks her out faster than a box of wine as it is.

    I’ve got one. I like it. Got it because I’ve always preferred having heavy blankets and can’t do it in the summer. Would do it again. Not a game changer but nice to have.
