The Sleep Tight Weighted Blanket
is designed to help your child fall asleep and stay asleep. Calming down for sleep is difficult for many people. Swaddling, which is gentle pressure from a blanket, has been used to help soothe babies since ancient times.

- Medium 42" x 54" 12 lbs
- Large 54" x 72" 16 lbs

The gentle pressure provides similar calming effects as swaddling and is an effective way to help calm down for sleep and help stay asleep.
The Sleep Tight design has a curved cut out portion at the top of the blanket. This innovative design allows the blanket to contour around the shoulders and under the chin for a great fit and maximum comfort (Never place the blanket over the face).
To concentrate the weight of the blanket on the body, The Sleep Tight is intentionally designed to be smaller than a regular blanket to most effectively distribute the weight on the body instead of on the bed.
Made of a soft corduroy fabric to further encourage calming down for sleep, unlike other weighted products worn during the day that have wearing time limitations, the Sleep Tight can be worn all night or may be taken off after the person has fallen asleep. As the blanket provides additional insulation, you will want to keep your room at a temperature that prevents the wearer from overheating.
The Sleep Tight weighted blanket is very effective with people who have the following diagnoses and difficulties: General stress, Anxiety, Sleep difficulties, Autistic Spectrum Disorders, Sensory Processing Dysfunction and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. The Sleep Tight comes in sizes extra small, small, medium, large and extra large. It should be used under the supervision of an adult.
The Sleep Tight is made with 100% cotton corduroy and filled with a non-toxic and hypoallergenic PET pellet material which is BPA and phthalate free. The pellets are sewn into a 100% cotton bag that is inserted in each chamber to prevent the pellets from escaping! Each blanket is double stitched around the outside and then twice on the bottom hem.
The corduroy fabric was selected for its softness but also for its durability in holding up to the weight of the blankets. You will quickly notice the high quality workmanship and materials.
Washing/Drying Instructions: You may machine wash your Sleep Tight and you may dry it in the dryer on low heat or on a drying rack. For the Medium, Large and Extra Large Sleep Tight sizes please check your washer and dryer instructions for weight recommendations. It may be better to wash these in a commercial washer and dryer.
All Sleep Tights come with a tab on each corner that can be used to "anchor" the blanket in the optional covers that are sold separately. These help keep the blanket in place within the cover.
Although the Sleep Tight is machine washable, covers may be desirable especially in multi-user environments.
