Few weeks ago my eldest and I got to discussing weighted blankets and the good reviews they get. Had a look on Amazon at prices and I’m not shelling out £50+ for a single blanket. A few days later she sees two in a store for £25 and grabbed them.
The blanket is enough for one person, weighs about 7kg. I’ve used it every night since.
Has the quality of my sleep improved?
I cannot remember the last time I woke up feeling good. I still get the freaky dreams about loss and being lost.
Does it help me get to sleep quicker?
That remains as variable as ever.
Am I sleeping more?
So overall I am finding no benefit to using it. In fact there’s a drawback. If the blanket slides off you, it takes much more effort to drag it back over than a duvet or sheets would.
Keep using it? Unsure. I suspect it’ll end up being a bed for the dogs / cats.
