Gravity Blanket / Weighted Blanket for Teen w/Sleep Issues
My 16 year old daughter has some sleep issues and has been wanting to get one of these Gravity Blankets (or some call them Weighted Blankets) which we've read is helpful to people trying to get to sleep. I was wondering if anyone has experience with them and can offer feedback / recommendations. There are things that I've read have made me hesitate to buy one a little bit. Some of these things that I've read is that there are beads inside and they can fall out of a seam or something and you end up having beads to clean up in your room. We've also read that the weighting doesn't necessarily match the type of person (they do it based upon the weight of the person sleeping under it apparently, but it can sometimes feel too heavy or too light). I've also read that they don't seem to size them to the bed size correctly - in other words, you might order a queen size, but the blanket sent is too small for that size bed if a friend is sleeping with or something. One thing I also read is that some have a bamboo fill which sounded good, but then it sounded like even the bamboo filled blankets have beads in them that can end up leaking out. I guess I'd just like to hear of some recommendations / suggestions from someone who has one and is really pleased or someone who got one and what they discovered / learned from that experience before I go and buy another thing that doesn't get used!
