The American Occupational Therapy Association studied the benefits of DTPS and has shown to occur even in short periods of being under a weight. If your child is suffering from sleep anxiety due to nightmares or loneliness, weighted blankets may help get them to fall asleep faster and stay asleep all night.
Weighted Blankets help you sleep as DTPS reduces cortisol, a stress hormone while releasing serotonin which is the happy hormone and melatonin which helps you sleep.
You should choose a weight that is 7-12% of your body weight or the combined weight of you and your partner if you are sharing.
