Weighted blankets are not your typical blankets: Most of them are made of cotton fabric and filled with multiple insulating layers as well as some form of plastic beads/ pellets which provide the weight. When searching for a Weighted Blanket it’s good to look for a premium brand that uses Bamboo and Microfiber fabrics in combination to provide the optimal experience and comfort. These blankets provide a hugging feeling initiated from Deep Pressure Stimulation, which ranges from 8 to 25 pounds.
One of the most common questions women are asking today is: “are weighted blankets too heavy for a pregnant woman?”
The answer is a resounding no. When deciding on the perfect weighted blanket, It’s important that the blanket be at least 10% of your total body weight, plus or minus 1-2 lbs, to get the full benefits. It is very important to cross reference the weighted blanket sizing charts to make sure you are selecting the right size for your body weight.
