Snuggling beneath a weighted blanket is more than just cozy. The extra heft has been shown to help people calm down, better manage stress and anxiety, plus experts even give the popular coverup credit for helping to lower cortisol levels. 

Sustainable weighted blanket company Bearaby is bringing those benefits to children with The Nappling. Touted as the “first of its kind,” the weighted blanket is designed with kids’ needs in mind, particularly during a time when many of them aren’t able to attend school or see their friends and classmates in person. Like Bearaby’s signature weighted blanket—The Napper—the brand’s kid-friendly option is an expansion on its ongoing mission to “make a good night’s sleep accessible to all” while upholding its vow to do so through the use of high quality, sustainable materials.

The Nappling ($149) is suitable for children ages 4-14. At eight pounds, the Nappling is quite a bit lighter than adult-sized weighted blankets, which tend to weigh anywhere between 12-25 pounds (most recommend that a weighted blanket be around 10 percent of your body weight). The blanket comes in a variety of colors: There’s Confetti, a multicolor pattern consisting of four hues; Evening Rose, a soft pink shade; Midnight Blue; and Moonstone Grey.

For adults wanting to experience the magic of weighted blankets for themselves, check out Bearaby’s other blanket options, including the plant-based biodegradable Tree Napper (from $249); the hand knit, filler-free Cotton Napper (from $249); The Sleeper (from $249), a breathable, weighted comforter with eucalyptus filler; and soft Sleeper Covers (from $99).
