Weighted Blankets for Kids

Weighted blankets, sometimes referred to as gravity blankets, are steadily becoming bedroom staples for adults. But at Kohl’s, you can find a wide assortment of weighted blankets for kids as well! A good night’s rest can make all the difference in the mental and emotional state of a child. Weighted blankets can be beneficial for children who have trouble sleeping through the night. If you’re not sure if a weighted blanket is right for your child, read on to learn more about this comfortable bedding option.

How Heavy Should a Weighted Blanket Be for a Child?

When it comes time to choose a weighted blanket for kids, the most critical concern is to make sure it’s a safe weight and size. It’s recommended that the blanket weighs no more than 10% of a child’s body weight, plus 1 to 2 pounds. It should be small enough for the child to be able to easily remove it without a hassle. Some options can be used by kids at least 4 years of age while others are better suited for those ages 10 and up. If you’re still unsure which weight of blanket to buy, you may wish to consult a doctor who can provide more specific guidelines for your individual situation.

General ranges for weighted blankets are:

  • A 4 to 7 pound blanket for those weighing between 30 and 50 pounds
  • A 6 to 9 pound blanket for those weighing between 50 and 70 pounds
  • An 8 to 11 pound blanket for those weighing between 70 and 90 pounds

Types of Weighted Blankets

No matter what style weighted blanket you’re looking for, Kohl’s can help you find the right option that works best for your little one. A weighted blanket with a removable cover comes with a hidden side zipper that can be fastened with corner ties to prevent any slipping. Look for options crafted with soft, breathable hypoallergenic fabrics.

Another option is a machine washable weighted coat. It’s the perfect combination of fashion and function. It features a weighted pad across the front and back shoulders while the cozy lining provides extra warmth and comfort.

Benefits of Kid’s Weighted Blankets

Unlike regular blankets, weight blankets have several benefits that they offer for personalized comfort and support. If you’re looking for a way for your child to reduce stress, soothe aches and pains, or even experience increased relaxation, then a weighted blanket might just be what they need. Here are a few conditions that weighted blankets can help with:

  • Improved focused for ADHD - Weighted blankets are great for addressing the common symptoms of ADHD by offering a deep touch pressure that produces a calm and soothing effect. This will help calm down their hyperactive bodies and minds.
  • Reduce stress - We understand that stress happens to everyone, but you shouldn’t have to purchase expensive equipment to find relief. Deep touch pressure stimulation through weighted blankets can help kids find a sense of calm.
  • Ease insomnia - Weighted blankets provide firm, gentle pressure wherever they need it to help regulate their sleep.
  • Reduce sensory processing disorder - In both children and adults, weighted blankets produce a calming effect that may help reduce anxiety and meltdowns.
