Have you heard about weighted blankets before? Naw, they’re not just for kids, and Rocabi makes a variety of them for adults that are luxourious and will help you sleep better if you’re a worrier like me who has a hard time unwinding at night.
It’s no secret that us moms are often stress and don’t always sleep well. Heck, it’s almost 1:00 AM as I write this. Though usually I’m not up this late writing posts, I do often have a hard time unwinding from a busy day.
Weighted blankets have been something I’ve been seeing more about lately, and though I did once sew a weighted lap pad for Var when he was little… I was a little hesitant to delve into the whole making a giant blanket and hoping that it’s not a not a huge fail. *ahem*
Anyway, if you’re looking for a fantastic gift for your mom, or even for yourself as a mother’s day gift (or your wife even) I would highly suggest checking into a weighted blanket from Rocabi. The outer fabrics are amazingly plush, gentle, and amazing. They don’t bother my texture issues and even Kat (who is the right size for the one we were sent) isn’t bothered by it. The underside minky fabric has little raised dots that are soothing to touch as you sink of to sleep.
When I first took our 60 x 80 – 15lb blanket from Rocabi out of its box and nice little canvas laundry bag, I was surprised at just how amazingly soft it was. Kat was having a rough time with her anxiety, and after wrapping herself up in a little ball in it, started to feel very quickly better. For warm weather months they even have a soft breathable cotton cover for the weighted blanket (which is an insert you tie to the corners of the outer blanket) so you don’t get too hot with the thick (but oh so soft) minky.
You can even save $25 through a coupon on their website to bring down the cost of the blanket as a special for Mother’s day. They ship quickly though Amazon, and I had our blanket within just a couple of days.
Here is some information straight from Rocabi themselves:
