I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
My oldest daughter is now 9 but I can honestly say she has had sleeping issues since the day she was born. She would wake up many times throughout the night for years and it was not until she was 7 or so that she consistently started sleeping through the night. It took us discovering the world of weighted blankets that helped us turn her sleep around for the better. The blankets from Weighting Comforts are top quality and they have a blanket for every member of the family that might need a little extra help getting and staying asleep.
Weighted blankets are more commonplace in the special needs community like with my daughter and her sensory issues but a weighted blanket can provide comfort to the average person in a time of stress, depression or anxiety as well. These can help any one that might be having sleep issues.
Weighted blankets benefit users just like a deep tissue massage. This pressure aids in releasing serotonin in the body. Serotonin is a hormone in our bodies that gives us a sense of well being. Some of that serotonin becomes melatonin which helps us relax and go to sleep. Simply put, weighted blankets are calming, cozy and comforting. At the end of a long day, there is nothing better than snuggling under the weight of a Weighting Comforts weighted blanket.
As you can see in the picture it is made in a bunch of squares put together to make it all work. They use high quality fabrics and thread for added strength and durability. The weighted beads inside each 5? pocket are made from an FDA-approved, non-irritating PVC compound. You choose the weight that best works for you. Big Sis here uses 15 pounds and that is what works best for her. This one in our pictures is from the COOLMAX line which means she does not get too hot while under it. PERFECT for our hot weather in Florida all year long.
Weighting Comforts partners with?Sew For Hope,empoweringinternational refugees?to sew your blanket. Sew For Hope is a non-profit organization that provides sewing machines and sewing classes for international refugees that have been resettled in Middle Tennessee. What an amazing bonus to know that their handmade blankets are supporting such a great cause.
They even have a 30-day better sleep guarantee. That means these blankets are definitely worth giving a try because you could gain some valuable sleep and if it does not work for you then you can get your money back. Big Sis has been using hers for over 30 days now and she won't even go to bed without it now. It helps put her into a deep sleep that helps her sleep through the night. If you don't know where to start I suggesting checking out the Charcoal Weighted Blanket and working from there. Check out all the information on their website because a Weighting Comforts weighted blanket might very well be the sleep solution you need!
