How This Weighted Blanket Transformed My Sleep and Life
I’ve been hearing all about the Cotton Napper from Bearaby for a WHILE now, and finally decided to see what all the fuss was about. I was obviously skeptical… could this weighted blanket really be as amazing as all the reviews claimed? I’m here to tell you that this thing is truly worth all the hype, and more. After my first night's sleep with the Cotton Napper, I immediately understood why people can’t stop talking about it. Fair warning, once you try it for yourself, you’ll never want to sleep without it again.
“This blanket —all organic cotton— is our favorite”
“The most sustainable weighted blanket”
“Like getting a hug”
“This weighted blanket helped me sleep better”
As someone who tosses and turns all night and maybe gets about 5 hours of sleep, I was stunned at how well the Cotton Napper worked on night one. After wrapping myself in it, I drifted to sleep in a matter of minutes and enjoyed the BEST night’s sleep I can remember in years. For the first time in a long time, I actually woke feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day.
The gentle full-body pressure of the Cotton Napper felt just like a soothing hug, and I immediately felt all my tension melting away. Apparently, the blanket’s weight harnesses the therapeutic power of deep touch pressure (DTP) which lowers cortisol (the stress hormone) while boosting serotonin (the happy hormone), which helps reduce my anxiety and keeps me feeling super calm and relaxed.
We’ve all experienced the crankiness that comes from restless nights, and it’s no secret that irritability and sleep deprivation go hand in hand. I have to admit that my lack of sleep was definitely taking a toll on my demeanor, but sleeping under this weighted blanket put the spring back in my step. I feel happier, more productive, and just overall in a better mood.
Keeps you cool
One of the main concerns I had with buying a weighted blanket was overheating. I’m a very hot sleeper and was worried that the heavy weight would only make things worse. I was surprised that the Cotton Napper was able to keep me cool and comfortable all night long. I don’t wake up sweating like I used to — the chunky-knit design is super breathable and keeps me at the perfect temperature.
Not only did the Cotton Napper improve my sleep, but it’s been the perfect addition to my bedroom decor. I’m obsessed with the chunky knit design and love how it looks layered with my bedding. The blanket comes in a variety of subtle, calming colors to match any space. I purchased the Olive Night color which goes so well with the earthy, minimalistic aesthetic of my room.
A knitted weighted blanket to help you sleep better and feel calmer, naturally. Made of organic cotton. Your Napper should be about 10% of your body weight.
