Teen/Young Adult weighted blankets come in Cotton, Minky, and CoolMax in many colors and patterns.
For teens, a weighted blanket can be a huge value add for busy schedules and changing sleep patterns. Many parents find that their teen will use a weighted blanket and fall asleep more quickly and sleep longer, as well as relax at any time of day or night, or use with study time in the bedroom or couch.
Weighted blankets utilize deep pressure touch which triggers a relaxing sensation in the nervous system, it’s the same science behind why hugs and massages feel so good, and why babies fall asleep when swaddled. Science shows an incremental rise in serotonin levels and melatonin levels and a reduction in cortisol levels. Serotonin is the happy hormone that makes us sleep better.
