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. Their Nappling should be roughly 10% of their body weight.
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.
Free shipping and easy returns.
Soft, sustainable fabric is the only thing inside our blanket to give it weight.
Our Fairtade International certified Napplings are pre-washed for buttery softness – just like your favorite T-shirt. Each Nappling is certified to the Organic Content Standard (OCS) and contains organically grown cotton that has been independently verified at each stage of the supply chain, from source to final product.
Sustainable cotton is naturally breathable and 100% biodegradable.
A healthier choice for your home and the planet: sustainable cotton uses up to 90% less water than conventional farming methods and is free from harmful chemicals, pesticides, synthetics, or artificial softeners.
OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 ensures this product is safe for your family, the people who manufactured it and the environment.
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. Avoid 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 10 % of your child’s body weight.
6 lbs - 36” x 48”
8 lbs - 40" x 60"

- DCDebra C.Verified Buyer9/15/23ReviewingNappling Evening Rose / 6Rated 4 out of 5 starsLoose weave allows too much air in
The blanket is beautiful and comfy for a nap. The loose weave makes for a draft which is very noticeableBBearaby9/20/23
Hi Debra, Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with us. I’m sorry to hear that your Nappling isn't working out quite as planned! Our goal is to help everyone get better sleep, but we understand that a knitted weighted blanket might not match your personal rest preferences. What we'd recommend in this case would be to layer the Nappling with another blanket to add a level of cozy warmth — but of course, if you're not happy with the Nappling overall, you can always return it within your 30 day try-it period. Wishing you happier naps ahead! 😴

I'm using mine as extra weight on top of a Tree Napper on cooler days (or when hubby has the AC set to iceberg!). Love that it is easier to move than my Hugger, and as a bonus I can use it as a travel blanket, moldable arm or back rest!
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?
Nappling 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!
