5 Stars By Rlena on 2018-04-21 Very soft and calming The douvet that goes over the blanket is super soft. The weight is evenly distributed throughout the whole blanket. Coving up with it is very calming and comforting. It is also helpful with someone who tosses and turns a lot at night, because it will keep you still. Me being a roller at night, I have been sleeping a lot sounder at night. It is also very warm and I find myself grabbing for it when I am relaxing on the couch. I think this would be awesome for someone who has high stress and anxiety, Because I feel so calm and relaxed when using it. I do recommend folding it up before carrying it, because I noticed some of the stitching in the douvet breaking loose from the weight.
5 Stars By AlumiGogo Customer on 2018-04-20 Don’t look at any other blankets buy this one now The first night I used my blanket we had really bad weather and tornado threats which gets me really anxious and I was able to fall asleep quickly and stay asleep longer than normal. When I don’t use the blanket I barley sleep at all with the blanket I can sleep all night without waking up and laying there for hours. My 3yo son has sensory processing disorder and this blanket is the exact same plush material and color as his weighted vest that we had made for him last year so it’s PERFECT for him. He gets upset and doesn’t want to lay down for a nap or if he wakes up from a nightmare I put him under the blanket about half way I don’t want too much weight on him and he falls alders almost instantly. It’s easy to get the duvet cover on and I love that it comes like that so you know how to take it off when it needs to be cleaned! That makes it so user friendly. I also suffer from ptsd and this blanket is a lifesaver I can not imagine how I got along without it. I had been wanting to order a similar blanket before but I was a little uneasy about trying one and this is so worth the money. I will be telling everyone they need a dr Hart’s weighted blanket today! The video shows the duvet cover it’s so easy to take off for cleaning but it stays together when using it and moving it from place to place it hasn’t come apart once.
5 Stars By Jennifer L. on 2018-04-16 WELL WORTH THE MONEY - at last I’m sleeping through the night!! I’ve never written an AlumiGogo review before but I really wanted to for this one.
OK so I was going crazy reading tons of other reviews and comparing features from other brands on amazon. I decided on this one because it seemed to have all the features I was looking for.
I’m so happy I chose Dr Hart’s! My husband and I both suffer from insomnia and we were amazed at what a difference the blanket made! Using it right away we felt super cozy and relaxed. The weight feels so good and makes you feel like you’re hugged or in a little nest. Now that we’ve used it for a good amount of time I can definitely say that it’s helped us sleep through the night Way more than we used to and less tossing and turning which helps us stay asleep.
What we love about the blanket is that it’s big enough for two people and super soft and cuddly! If anything I would say that the blanket works too well. I say this as kind of a joke but l its true you never want to get out of bed because you feel so good! Our kids are always stealing it from us and taking naps so we decided to get another one for them ;-P
5 Stars By Shopping addict!! on 2018-05-15 Finally I am able to sleep! Let me start off by saying I have ptsd and struggle with anxiety which makes it impossible to sleep. I would get about 7 hours in a normal WEEK (yes you read that right a week not in a night, but 7 hours total in a week) and now I'm sleeping all through the night. The very first night it took some getting used to I woke up twice but for the first time in years ,was able to go back to sleep. After about a week I was not waking up at all and sleeping all through the night. I wake up in a great mood , I feel refreshed, I don't wake up with the feeling of my insides shaking due to being so anxious. I am just in a over all better mood I have energy and able to do more through the day now than I'm sleeping. I will say that I can not just wrap up in it because now it puts me to sleep within about 10 min. So I try to just stick to using it only at night unless I get extremely anxious! This is worth every penny and has really given me hope to a normal life!!! The blanket its self is soft and cozy especially with the velvet duvet cover(which surprisingly is not hot). The stitching is superbly done . I take it back and forth from my bed to the couch (that's a lot of weight on those seams but still no bead leaks.)I have absolutely nothing negative to say its utterly PERFECT!
3 Stars By BLW on 2018-06-13 It's fine. It helps It's fine. It helps, I guess, but I wish it was heavier. I think it's a little underwhelming. For reference, I got the 25 pound blanket and am 6 feet, 200 pounds.
4 Stars By christian on 2018-04-20 Great product, just a little bit small I absolutely love this weighted blanket! I have a stress-induced sleep issues, so I was hoping this would give me some relief. I slept like a rock; no tossing, no turning, no waking up in a panic. I will be sleeping with this blanket every night! My husband also loves it, but he only gets to nap with it since I have it all night. That brings me to the two minor issues I have with the blanket design. 1. It is a little small to sleep with at night, but it is perfect for a napping blanket. However, both my husband and I are very tall, so it would probably be fine for someone shorter. 2. The blanket tends to bunch up inside the cover, which is a problem with almost all duvet covers. It takes me some time to get the blanket situated inside the cover every night, but it’s not a deal-breaker for me. I prefer to keep the cover on it so I can wash it.
5 Stars By KR on 2018-04-30 Good weight, but large I have been looking at weighted blankets for my son who is autistic. His therapists have used a weighted vest with him during his therapy sessions to keep him calm and focused. I thought a weighted blanked would help at bedtime. He loves it! My younger son like to use it too. They both curl up under the blanket and read at night. The blanket arrived quickly. It was sent in a plain brown box and included instructions for how to attach the duvet cover and a coupon for a free cover. The instructions were very easy to follow (the images helped) and I was able to attach the cover quickly. My main issue with the blanket is that it is too big, which makes it heavy and difficult to move around. I think a twin size blanket would be more manageable.
4 Stars By Lefay on 2018-06-09 Safe, effective, comforting I use the blanket at night to help with chronic insomnia. (I've previously tried many remedies, prescription and nonprescription, and nothing has provided long-term relief.) Since I started using it nearly three weeks ago, I've had only one restless night, which is a big improvement. Pros: The weight is comforting and definitely helps to alleviate restlessness and sleeplessness. The weight is distributed evenly, and the ties inside the cover keep the blanket from bunching up. Cons: It's not big enough for my king size bed. The velour cover combined with the weight makes it a little too warm on hot nights. I'm hoping that a cotton cover will help. Overall I'm very satisfied with my purchase.
5 Stars By Reverie on 2018-05-12 Has everything I was looking for This blanket is truly awesome! It had everything I was looking for: glass (micro quartz) beads to add weight quietly, individually sewn bead pockets, extra large size, excellent construction, and an included duvet cover for easy washing (and duvet loops on the blanket to easily switch out covers if you have another one you’d prefer to match your decor). I actually went with a weight that is more than the 10% + 1 lb of body weight recommended and I love the extra pressure. My body adjusts quickly after covering up with this blanket and it doesn’t feel like weight at all, just secure, cozy warmth enveloping me. Great brand and I would recommend this blanket!
5 Stars By AlumiGogo Customer on 2018-07-31 Yes, I have been sleeping better. I sleep so well in the winter because it’s cool which means I can pile on heavy blankets. It’s the being able to pile on heavy blankets that brings me the joy. Why this particular brand? The filling isn’t a man made material, when it’s wears out some day I can pour the filling out into my backyard instead of adding into landfill. We started using these during the latest heat wave. The sand inside does not hold heat very well at all just like the desert at night I gather that the sand has no thermal capacity which is good. I like weight, I don’t like heat and and this blanket fit the bill. It does take a while to get used to. After the first week I was ready to ditch the blanket but by the second week it was all good so you have to give it a chance. It’s different having essentially a big sack of sand on top of you but I’ll be damned if I am not getting some real deep quality sleep. My better half is totally loving hers.
