Weighted blankets are throw-sized blankets filled with weighted materials, such as plastic pellets. The feeling of weighted physical pressure can result in a calming effect. The weighted blanket uses the principles of Deep Touch Pressure (DTP) or Deep Pressure Stimulation (DPS) to improve relaxation. These blankets come in different sizes and weights, and can be used by kids and adults to increase a sense of calm in their daily lives.
The size of your weighted blanket varies based on who you are buying the blanket for. There is a rule of thumb for getting the right weighted is 10% of your bodyweight plus a pound or two. However, this typically breaks down for heavier adults, as it's hard to find any weighted blanket over 11kgs.
However, for children, it's very important to use this rule. If your 3-year-old needs a weighted blanket and weighs 18kgs, you’d want to get them a 2.26kg blanket (not available in this deal).
