Weighted blankets?

Recommended Posts

Anyone else have a weighted blanket? I got mine for under $40 on sale, with a gift card I got for Christmas. It might not be the best brand but it feels nice when I sleep. It’s soothing and calming. I don’t toss and turn as much. It is the size of a throw. So not very big. It’s 15 lbs, so not terribly heavy. Here it is on my lap.  It’s a silver or gray color.

when I'm symptomatic (to any degree), it usually feels good.  If I'm 100% healthy (yeah, when's that happen), it's too heavy and I feel pinned down.

Interesting. Thanks for the input guys! Time will tell if I continue to like and use my weighted blanket I guess. And if it holds up since it was so inexpensive. Here’s hoping!

I love my weighted blanket, but I’ve discovered that I have to time how long I use it, or else I wake up with body aches the next day.

My best friend who got mine for me feels the same way. But he kicks around and tosses and turns in his sleep, and is also deathly thin, which may have to do with it. He doesn't move around or kick when he uses his weighted blanket though.

@mikl_pls, why would being thin make a difference?

He has the lowest weight and it still feels like it's too much for him. I guess I should've specified that lol.

I love my weighted blanket. I can't sleep under it, though. It doesn't breathe well enough. But it's great for cozying up during the day, or when I'm reading or something. Wrapping it around my chest/shoulders is the best imo.

Interesting. I guess we are all different! I am always cold so sleeping under mine is not an issue warmth wise.

And I like heavy blankets. I have this old very heavy quilt that I used to sleep under that was almost a weighted blanket lol.

And I’m sure the one I have now is not a good one.  It seems like all the weight shifts or settles to the ends/the parts that aren’t on top of me. I don’t know how to remedy this. Oh well. I feel a little weight anyway on top of me, but not a whole lot. Odd.
