Can a 15 lb Weighted Blanket Help You Sleep Better?

For decades, people have been using weighted blankets as calming and supporting aids. The brilliant deep touch pressure technology embedded in the fabric grounds the body during sleep. At the same time, it improves the quality of your rest. Even though weighted blankets are not a novel invention on the market, they are quickly becoming a popular choice. In fact, they are the ideal pick for anyone that prefers a more holistic and natural lifestyle. Thus, the creation of the 15 lb weighted blanket by Baloo Living.

What Is a Weighted Blanket?

With over seventy percent of Americans having difficulties falling asleep at least one night a week, it is quite apparent that there is a need for aid. What if that aid came in the form of a soft and gentle 15 lb weighted blanket? If you’re battling insomnia, the weighted blanket could be a game changer during sleepless nights.

The weighted blanket resembles a regular blanket filled with lead-free glass microbeads . At Baloo Living, we make sure that even the fabric is chemical-free breathable cotton. These microbeads are sewn into tiny autonomous pockets, which are evenly dispersed throughout the blanket. That is how we achieve deep touch pressure.

The Results of Using a Weighted Blanket

Today, we have extensive research on the subject that provides you with insight into the positive effects weighted blankets have on people with insomnia. However, the most impressive results come from the many positive experiences people have with the weighted blanket. According to the reviews, the weighted blanket has a beneficial impact on sleep. Above else it makes people feel safe and comfortable in their bed by dispersing anxiety and restlessness that might prevent them from falling asleep.

From the reviews of our customers, the use of a weighted blanket makes an incredible difference if they experience any type of insomnia. In general, sleep feels calmer, and they notice a decrease in movements during the night. The result is that the weighted blanket provides a more comfortable, better quality, and more secure sleep.

The conclusion from this is that a weighted blanket can help you reduce insomnia because of the deep touch pressure stimulation, and at the same time is “an innovative, nonpharmacological approach and complementary tool to improve sleep quality.”

If you’re looking for calmer and deeper sleep during the night, the weighted blanket as a natural option can support you in that pursuit.

The Gentle Grounding Pressure of a Weighted Blanket 15 lbs

If you’re wondering why the weighted blanket 15 lbs can promote better sleep, you should learn more about the effect of deep pressure touch. The weighted blanket for adults features a deep touch pressure technology that simulates the sensation of a touch or a hug. By using a weighted blanket, you’re getting a deep pressure touch stimulation while you’re sleeping or relaxing. This type of stimulus relaxes the nervous system and encourages serotonin production; you MAY sleep better and FEEL a significant mood boost.

By mimicking the “hugging” effect, your body feels calmer and more comfortable during sleep. At the same time, you may feel grounded and soothed. In fact, the best way to label the effects and use of a weighted blanket is to embrace it as a part of your self-care routine. The best way to function during the day is to get a good night’s sleep.

Should You Choose a 20 lb Weighted Blanket?

At Baloo Living, we offer you two options: a 15 lb weighted blanket and a 20 lb weighted blanket. Even though it comes down to personal preferences, we’re going to provide you with the general guidelines that might help you with your choice.

The recommended body weight for a 15 lb weighted blanket is from 120 lbs to 170 lbs. On the other hand, the recommended body weight for a 20 lb weighted blanket is from 170 lbs to 220 lbs or more. Given that weighted blankets are heavier than others by their nature, the configurations should dovetail with your body weight to achieve optimal results.

Each person should consider their unique preferences when choosing a weighted blanket. However, if you need additional information, you can take a look at our Infographic , which will provide you with helpful and specific info you may want to consider.

Who Should Try a Weighted Blanket 20lbs?

Using a weighted blanket is a form of self-care. It is a natural way for you to add comfort and calmness in your sleeping and relaxing routine. However, even though we think that everyone can benefit from deep touch pressure stimulation, some people might benefit from a weighted blanket more than most. Here are our recommendations for people that would benefit the most from a weighted blanket 20lbs.

If you’re:

  • Having difficulties with insomnia and falling asleep
  • Elevated stress and anxiety, especially if that seems normal for you
  • Experiencing mental health challenges
  • If you feel like additional security and comfort would be helpful to you during the night, the weighted blanket is a marvelous idea. By lowering the cortisol levels and stimulating the production of serotonin in your body, you will feel relaxed and rested when you wake up from your deep sleep. This means that a weighted blanket may effectively function as a chemical free mood booster! The weighted blanket is a support mechanism for people that experience anxiet or have insomnia, meaning it may be the perfect tool for ACHIEVING a natural state of balance.

One might presume that weighted blankets work as anxiety blankets for people that want to reduce the stress levels in their life.

The Benefits of a 20 lb Weighted Blanket for Adults

As you already concluded, the benefits of using a 20 lb weighted blanket for adults are many, from better and deeper sleep to reduced cortisol levels in the body. This leads to lower stress levels, mood improvement and an overall feeling of rejuvenation. 

However, if you think that a 20lb weighted blanket is too heavy, you can always choose the lighter 15 lb weighted blanket. It’s up to you!

Quality Blanket, Quality Sleep

I've waited a few months since receiving the blanket to review it because I wanted to really get an impression of it and be sure no beads would leak (had a bad experience with a cheaper blanket that really ticked me off) and so far I am satisfied. I thought I would be cheap and get the 15lb blanket even though I'm 190lbs, but in hindsight I would have done well to follow the advice of manufacturers and get the 20lb blanket. The blanket just barely covers the top of my queen sized mattress, so it doesn't completely cover my 6'3" tall frame, but I sleep with a light sheet between the blanket and me which keeps my feet covered while my shoulders are snug under the blanket.

Blanket is cool to sleep under even in the Florida summer, the pockets sewn in keep the whole blanket weighted, and the loops for a duvet cover are a nice touch.

A bigger, heaver blanket would have suited me better than the 15lb queen I got, but I can't complain at all about the quality, feel, and sleep I get with this blanket, especially at this price point.

Very high quality blanket!

Workmanship is outstanding! I had been looking at weighted blankets at BB&B and didnt think much of them but after reading reviews on this one and seeing their return policy I decided to give it a try. I love it, I love the tiny glass beads instead of oversized plastic ones. Its a delight to sleep with! 2nd review- It's very hard to keep on the bed!

Well worth the investment!

I received my Baloo Weighted blanket on Tuesday. It arrived in great condition with a beautiful, thoughtful note from the founder, Elizabeth Grojean. I was worried when ordering that I would not find the quality of the fabric used to equal my fine, Italian bedding by Pratesi, but I was not disappointed. The Shell fabric and border were lovely. I could not wait to fall asleep that night as I have had problems sleeping for quite sometime. I have sleep apnea and my cpap machine wakes me up. I have had three wonderful nights of sleep, and see no reason why I won't continue to appreciate the care that has gone into creating the Baloo Weighted Blanket. Thank you Elizabeth Grojean and thank you for the free download of the Tibetan and crystal singing bowls restorative sound. I also appreciated your contribution to The Pajama Program benefiting children living in homeless shelters. Sincerely, Linda Gintel
