So I recently took the plunge and got one of these, AND I AM IN LOVE WITH IT.
Does anyone else have one? What do you think?
For those who don't know, a weighted blanket is like a normal blanket but it's made using glass to make it heavier. They're commonly used as a way to calm anxiety, help with insomnia, or as a sensory thing for folks with autism. Or purely as a personal choice for comfort. I think you're meant to get one that's 10% of your body weight to avoid it being too heavy, so you just get a feeling of snugness.
They're pretty pricey and arguably a luxury, but definitely ended up being worth the investment for me. Keen to hear if you guys have any experience of these and if so, what you thought, liked/disliked, etc.
All behaviour is a need trying to be met.
