How Heavy Should a Weighted Blanket Be?

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).
