OUR WEIGHTED BLANKET FOR KIDS
Everything you need to know
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% organic cotton)
Organic cotton is naturally breathable and 100% biodegradable.
A healthier choice for your home and the environment: organic cotton uses up to 90% 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.
Our Nappling is available in two weight options. We recommend a weighted blanket that is around 15 % of your child’s body weight.
6 lbs - 36” x 48”
8 lbs - 40" x 60"

What our customers say
Best purchase ever
Before buying this blanket I used to wake up 2-3 times during the night. From the first night using it, I’ve slept continuously, all the way through. This blanket works like magic.
Amazing, cozy, heavy without being restrictive. Haven’t slept this well in a long time.
Totally hits function meets fashion
Love the style - it looks like one of our other "designer" throw blankets but much more comfortable. Wish I had more couches so I could have more Nappers!
It has changed our world
Our 8 year old never sleeps more than 2 hours at a time, and is constantly waking her mom. She’s had the Nappling for a week, and has been sleeping from 9pm - 6am without budging. This has been a wonderful shock to us, that a blanket has changed her sleeping habits.
If you have trouble sleeping or chronic insomnia, this is worth it. I haven’t known continuous sleep in years. No meds. No melatonin. Just a super comfortable blanket, so happy with my purchase!
Perfect for two in a Cali King!
The Hugger was the perfect solution for me and my spouse - we are both able to stay asleep much better than we did pre-Bearaby and we can get some snuggles in. The blanket is beautiful and is plenty big for our California King bed. We are super happy with this purchase!
I can't recommend this enough
I have had insomnia since I was a child. I've tried everything, literally, to help. I still have trouble drifting off, but this blanket allows me to sleep all night and wake refreshed. I love it.
I love this weighted blanket!
The velvet feels so luxurious and I slept like a baby after using it. I woke up refreshed and didn’t experience my usual restless leg syndrome. I love how the weight is evenly distributed, unlike other blankets that have beads that tend to favor the side that’s draped.
No more anxiety
I used to have intense anxiety attacks right before I'd fall asleep. Sleeping with my Cotton Napper has virtually eliminated those.
Love it...it’s super soft and it seems to help with my restless leg syndrome. I was concerned that it would be too heavy since I only weigh 98 pounds but it is perfect. I have to fight my dogs for it!
You won't be disappointed!
I've tried other weighted blankets, and couldn't get over the heat or the sound but the Bearaby one is simply awesome! I get hot easily and never get overheated with this Napper. It feels so soft and smooth, and the color is gorgeous!
Got this for my son
My son who struggles with anxiety related to autism, this morning he came down and told me his Bearaby has made a huge difference in how well he sleeps. Which is making a difference in his mood and ability to focus.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do weighted blankets work?
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
Can a 4-year-old use a weighted blanket?
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.
What are the benefits of weighted blankets for kids?
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.
How do you use a kids weighted blanket?
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!
