Weighted Blankets for Natural Sleep

There’s a reason being touched, hugged, and held feels so good. It’s because the pressure sensation of touch causes the brain to release serotonin, a neurotransmitter responsible for promoting feelings of well-being and sound sleep, among other things. For centuries, humans have used deep pressure therapy to soothe their babies through swaddling. Now, weighted blankets can give this comfort to older children and adults.

Users have described the sensation of lying beneath one of our weighted blankets as The Best Hug Ever. Weighted blankets apply an even, gentle deep touch pressure to the entire body. Lying beneath a weighted blanket is like lying in the arms of a loved one. It’s an excellent way to soothe and calm children, especially those with sensory processing disorders, autism spectrum disorders, or anxiety.

But weighted blankets are heavy and aren’t convenient for use outside the home. Our weighted lap buddy lap pads are the perfect answer for those who use weighted blankets for autism and other sensory processing disorders. These small, convenient lap pads are easy to take to work, school, the office, or on play dates. Take the comfort of a weighted blanket everywhere you go.
