If you received a weighted blanket for Christmas, we hope you slept like a baby last night! Many of you have suffered restless sleep for years! Our hope is you have embarked on a new way of experiencing comfort and rest.

Honestly, it may take a few nights to get used to the weight and change old patterns. We recommend you try sleeping with your blanket for at least a week and in a few different ways to see how your body is best comforted.

Here's how:

1. Place the weighted blanket on top of your comforter, covering your whole body from chest to toes.
2. Use the weighted blanket on top of your sheet, with no comforter.
3. Place the weighted blanket on only the LOWER half of your body.
4. Place the weighted blanket on only the UPPER half of your body.

If you have a feeling of “stuffiness” with the blanket on you, take a deep breath and remind yourself, "I can remove this blanket at any time." Some people find it takes several nights to adjust to the weight.

We'd love to hear how you position your blanket to find the most comfort.

Be Comforted,

Donna Durham, MMFT

My daughter wanted one for Christmas, well she got it, and is on a trip, so I’ve been using it for a week now. I love it and it covers me from head to toe. I sleep much deeper and no flip flopping and if I get up to go to bathroom I go right back to sleep, not normal for me, so it really works. It’s a true blessing for me. I’m 62 and have had trouble sleeping since I was 15 so thanks to all the wonderful people that make these amazing blankets.

What Blanket Weight Should I Buy?

If you're new to weighted blankets, we recommend that you choose the lightest weight available of the style you prefer. If after looking at this size chart you find yourself between two weights, we recommend you choose the lighter of the two.
