With about 10% of Americans suffering from consistent insomnia, many of us are looking for help to sleep better. Millions of Americans are turning to sleeping aids, both over-the-counter and prescription. But, as you probably know, these medications can cause somenegative side-effects, and most arenot meant for long-term use. They can even be habit-forming.
Many of the people who find Weighting Comforts are looking for an all-natural solution to insomnia, anxiety, or pain that keeps them up at night. I love hearing from customers who have found some relief using our weighted blankets! I mean, who wants to take more medicine?
Here are a few testimonials we’ve recently received:
I've tried new mattresses, herbal supplements, essential oils, and prescription sleep meds, but nothing has worked as well for me as this weighted blanket has. The first night I fell asleep within 20 minutes and slept through the night. It was the first time in years.
I have had Restless Leg Syndrome for most of my life. I have tried prescription medications, drinking tonic water, ibuprofen, and essential oils. This blanket is the first thing that offers a comfortable, full night's sleep! I am so grateful!
I bought my weighted blanket to help with fibromyalgia pain and restless nights. It has almost been a week and I am sleeping better. I am going off my sleeping medication too. This is a blessing.
Of course, I recommend talking to your doctor before making any changes in prescription medication - your physician knows all about your medical history and how to treat it best.
Being a part of improving anyone’s quality of life, whether big or small, is so rewarding. Thank you for sending in your reviews. We read each one and are so glad to hear you’re sleeping better!
If you or someone you love is looking for an all-natural way to improve their sleep, please share our blankets with them.

A general rule when purchasing a weighted blanket is taking your weight and multiplying it by .10, or taking 10% of your body weight. Using that number, follow the chart below to guide you in finding the perfect blanket!

Fall in between two different weight limits for two blankets? We suggest going with the smaller of the two blanket weights.
Still not sure which size to buy? Most of our customers buy one of the 15-pound blankets.
