nappling details

Our Nappling is designed especially for kids, to help them switch off after a long day of learning and play. Sleeping under weight is proven to help people do exactly that, by relaxing the body into a naturally deep, longer sleep.

In the Nappling, our signature chunky knit loops are smaller and closer together, so the weighted blanket hugs little ones close. That way, they enjoy the full benefit of a weighted blanket that’s tailored to their small size and shape.

The Nappling is knitted from layers of natural organic cotton, which is highly breathable and delightfully soft, for a magical cuddle and just-right coziness whenever it’s time to snuggle up for a snooze.

Our organic long-staple cotton is pre-washed for buttery softness – just like your favorite T-shirt.

MADE IN GREEN by OEKO-TEX® and Fairtrade International certified (100% Cotton)

Organic cotton is naturally breathable and 100% biodegradable.

A healthier choice for your home and the environment: organic cotton uses 85% less water than conventional farming methods and is free from harmful chemicals, pesticides, synthetics, or artificial softeners.

All our blankets arrive pre-washed, so there’s no need to wash it before you cuddle up! The Nappling is designed to be snuggled and loved, so that means that when the time comes, it’s easy to wash, too.

When your Nappling is in need of a refresh, wash it separately in cold water on a delicate or permanent-press cycle. Use a mild detergent, and avoid bleach and fabric softeners.

Tumble dry on low.

Note: your Nappling may take more than one cycle to be fully dried.hanging your Nappling to dry – it'll stretch out its lovely loops.

Frequently Asked Questions

The magical calming effect of a weighted blanket comes from something called Deep Touch Pressure (DTP) Therapy, which is the act of placing an even weight all over the body.

For little ones, it can help them to feel safer, and more secure – it’s like getting a comforting hug from your blanket! It can help make bedtimes less stressful, and lull your littles into a deep, blissful sleep.

Here’s what the science says about DTP:

  • It increases serotonin, which makes you feel happier and more content
  • It increases melatonin, which helps you to fall asleep
  • It decreases cortisol, helping to reduce anxiety and stress

Weighted blankets are safe for children aged four years and older.

Using a weighted blanket for a toddler or a baby poses safety risks and we do not recommend using our weighted blanket for very young children.

The benefits of a weighted blanket for kids are rooted in the science of Deep Touch Pressure (DTP) Therapy. Like the soothing feeling of a warm hug or how a baby is soothed when swaddled, the DTP children experience when resting under a weighted blanket naturally helps comfort and calm them.

DTP is proven to increase serotonin levels. Serotonin naturally converts into melatonin, also known as our body’s sleep hormone. During naptime or bedtime, this natural conversion can do wonders in helping your child fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.

If your child tends to be a sensory-seeker and has difficulty sleeping, a weighted blanket can be the perfect tool to help them calm down and naturally find better sleep over time.

Kids can use weighted blankets in a variety of ways:

  • During nap time
  • During night time
  • Draped over little laps when doing homework

If your child feels anxious, the “hugging” feeling of resting under a weighted blanket can bring about a greater sense of calm. Pull out a Nappling when your little one needs some downtime – Napplings pair great with a book on the couch!
