Benefits of weighted blankets: Better sleep for kids and adults
Any parent knows that sleep is a precious resource. You’ll do anything to get a full night’s sleep and dream about the next night as soon as you wake up. It’s one of the common threads that bind parents everywhere...sleepless nights.
But sleep is also equally as important for your little one as it helps them have energy, grow and develop. Ensuring your entire family is getting enough sleep is quite an undertaking, but one that a weighted blanket can definitely help with.
Weighted blankets have been getting a lot of buzz lately. These heavy, bead-filled blankets mimic a hug and lead to better quality sleep.
People swear by them to reduce insomnia, anxiety, and pain. On top of those benefits, sleeping with a weighted blanket can also help children with ADHD and autism relax into better sleep.
We’re all about creating products that make for a safe, sleep-filled night, so the aden + anais™ embrace weighted blanket collection is here to help your child fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.

Yes and no. The added weight of the blanket on its own does not lead to nighttime overheating, but it can make you hot. This is in part due to the heaviness, but more so the material of the blanket itself, the temperature of the room, and the metabolism of the sleeper. Most weighted blanket users do not report feeling hotter after switching from a normal blanket.
Our aden + anais™ embrace weighted blanket collection is made of natural, soft, breathable 100% cotton to reduce your child’s chances of feeling hot and ensure maximum comfort.
