I’ve been reading more stories especially case studies about Insomniacs who have solved their problems themselves. The one common factor of all of these is the user in the study added a cooling weighted blanket of 12 to 18lbs.
Filled with glass beads to allow for cooling, they are all sewn in place in a box stitch so the beads don’t all fall into one location and leave half the blanket empty on one side.
I had ordered one a few nights ago and received it yesterday in the mail and found an 18lb 60″x70″ blanket that offers great cooling and a much more relaxed feeling. The weight removes anxiety, adds to an all night feeling of being comforted or hugged and when Stacey throws her leg onto me it adds to the weight instead of cutting off the blood supply like it used to do before a thicker blanket. She was under this blanket as well and woke up about 30 minutes ago telling me about the best sleep she’s had in years where in her sleep tracker it showed over 8 hours of sleep. Stupid iWatch holds your heart rate better than the Fitbit. It might be time to get an iWatch with my holiday bonuses if u don’t got out receive one as a gift.
Tonight I test the Muse 2 and Weighted blanket to see what my sleep results are.
Weighted blankets are more expensive than regular comforters or quilts and usually start around $80 for a 60″x70″ size and more to add in cooling starting at 12lbs. 12lbs to 18lbs. It’s perfect for users above 120lbs and the one I bought was a Beautyrest. It’s 100% polyester faux mink fabric with diamond quilting. Not only is there a glass bead material sewn in but also poly fill to help distribute the weight for an even feeling.
You can always try one and return it within 30 days as most places sell weighted blankets such as Costco, bed bath beyond, Target, Kohl’s and others like Sam’s Club etc.
