Benefits

The weight and added deep pressure produced by a weighted blanket provides many benefits to children and adults alike. The weight can:

  • Aid with calming and relaxing high energy or restless children.
  • Signal the brain to release neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin, which have a calming affect and help with mood control.
  • Help reduce stress and/or effects of trauma.
  • Brings a feeling of safety and protection to trauma survivors.

I made a weighted blanket for myself after seeing the effect my daughter's had on her. Suddenly, she was able to sleep through the night! I had always preferred heavy blankets on me at night, but the heat could get overwhelming. I've used my own weighted blanket for several years now, and the combination of the weight and the coolness of the cotton blanket make sleeping so enjoyable!

 

Weight Chart for Adults for Queen Size Blankets:

  • 10 lb. blanket for light pressure (this feels like having several nice heavy blankets on top of you, but without the heat. Perfect for mild sensory issues or mild anxiety.)
  • 15 lb. Blanket for light-medium pressure
  • 20 lb. Blanket for medium pressure (this is a nice weight for moderate anxiety)
  • 25 lb. Blanket for medium-high pressure (Many people with strong sensory needs prefer a 25-30 lb. blanket)
  • 30 lb. Blanket for high pressure

* Remember, you should always go with your OT’s recommendation on blanket weights.
