Weighted blankets are all the craze these days. These blankets come in a range of weights, with most being 12-15 pounds. The weight typically comes from glass beads or plastic pellets. Below are some of the pros and cons of weighted blankets.

Weighted blankets have gained popularity because they can help improve your sleep. Weighted blankets are thought to be beneficial for a number of conditions including anxiety, insomnia, and osteoarthritis, autism, and ADHD. The extra weight and pressure of the blanket can relax your nervous system, making it easier for you to fall asleep.

Although weighted blankets have shown to be beneficial for many, some people should not use them. Toddlers and small childrens should not use weighted blankets, as well as people with claustrophobia, sleep apnea, and asthma. Weighted blankets are also not ideal for those who tend to overheat at night, as the extra weight can create extra warmth.

If you’re interested in a weighted blanket, do some research and find the right weight and material for you.
