These days, weighted blankets are more popular than ever — and it's no surprise why. They're said to help relieve stress and anxiety, as well as promote natural, deep sleep. And if you have a weighted blanket that you love, why not share it with the whole family, including your children? Bearaby's latest launch is a cozy, breathable, and calming weighted blanket designed just for kids.

Bearaby is known for its stylish knit weighted blankets, available in variations made from both cotton and plant-based Tencel. These blankets range from 15 to 25 pounds, and you can take a quiz on the brand's website to find out which weight is right for you. Now, the brand's Nappling blanket comes in a size that's just right for kids, measuring in at eight pounds and 40 inches by 60 inches.

The blanket is made from soft, organic cotton with no fillers, so you can be sure it will be cozy all night (or nap time) long. Despite its heavy, cocoon-like feel, the fabric is breathable enough for warm sleepers. Plus, it's machine-washable. And while many weighted blankets are filled with microbeads that can be noisy and unevenly distributed, the Nappling's hand-knitted construction ensures it's evenly weighted, allowing for natural, deep sleep. Available in navy, gray, pink, and color block, you'll be sure to find a blanket that fits your style.

Shoppers love Bearaby's adult-sized weighted blankets, as shown by the rave reviews on the brand's website, so there's no doubt the kid-sized version will be just as much of a hit. One reviewer even called the blanket "life-changing."

"I had previously owned a weighted blanket from a different company, but the beads used for filling leaked all over my bed. When I stumbled on Bearaby and their Nappers, which are naturally weighted, I was so excited! Weighted blankets have changed my life, and I can’t remember what my life was like before one," another shopper wrote.
