With a weighted blanket, you can help your child improve their sleep and reduce their stress levels, naturally.

"My daughter with sensory needs always struggled with getting into a restful state to be able to sleep. From about the first night of using this calming blanket she stayed in her bed and was able to fall asleep in a much more peaceful frame of mind. This has continued ever since! Now I ask myself why I didn't purchase this blanket for her sooner!"

Meet Andy...

Andy purchased a Sleep Heavy blanket for her son, who is on the Autism spectrum.

Before using a Sleep Heavy blanket, Andy’s son would find it hard to settle in the evenings and get to sleep. Nights of restlessness, discomfort and stress lead to days of fatigue, sensitivity and difficulty.

Our Sleep Heavy weighted blanket helped Andy’s son get the deep, calm, interrupted sleep he deserves so that he could be his best self at school and throughout the day. 

Andy purchased her blanket for her son, but she admits she’s used it herself to help her unwind after a long day...

"“The blanket is super soft and I think that’s why I’ve found it so relaxing, that along with the weight… It just has a super calming feel to it."

What weight should I get?

We have a quick and easy weight guide that can help you determine which blanket is perfect for you. If you have further questions about which weight to go for, feel free to email us on support@sleepheavy.co.nz or phone 021 423 989. We’re always here to chat. 

I’m a hot sleeper, will Sleep Heavy blankets make me overheat?

Not at all. Although our blankets are heavy, they’re designed to be breathable, especially our bamboo and cotton blankets. Cotton and bamboo helps regulate your body temperature by absorbing and retaining heat from your body, keeping you the perfect temperature all night long.

Can I return/exchange my blanket if I get the wrong weight?

Yes, of course, so long that it’s within 30 days. Simply request an exchange and our courier will collect your blanket from your door, return it for you and deliver the right size.

How long does shipping take?

Your blanket will be dispatched from our Christchurch warehouse, and will be with you within 2-3 business days. Rural areas may take a day or two longer.

How will a Sleep Heavy weighted blanket help with my anxiety?

Our weighted blankets use a method called Deep Pressure Stimulation. The weight from your blanket encourages your body to make the switch from fight or flight to rest and digest, bringing a sense of calm and peace to your mind and body. You can find out more about how our blankets work here.
