Weighted blanket?

I rotate days to nights every 2 weeks. As such, I have a separate room to sleep in when on nights so I don't wake my better half when I get home. In our (her) room we have a queen bed with a heavy comforter on top with a down comforter (heavy), quilt and sheet.

In the room I sleep in while on night shift, I only have a quilt and sheet... The warmth isn't what I want, it's the weight of the down comforter.

Anyone have a weighted blanket? Thoughts?

I read the title and assumed you needed something to aid in the disposing of a corpse into a body of water.

Good heavy quilts kick ass.

My mom made a blanket before i was born, it was half corderoy and the other side was light weight something or other. 30+ years it lasted then the light marterial desolved like tissue paper. So i saved a bunch of my overalls and she made a new side for it. Even put the chest pocket on it !.

It will smother an old man and take him to a comfy grave.

I sleep much better with a heavy blanket (not a weighted blanket), have a hard time sleeping without it. One of our kids has a weighted blanket and seems to sleep better with it. The kid we bought it for though didn't seem to sleep any better with it, so go figure.

Ball up heavy comforter and see what it weighs.
Go to store and pick up comforters. Judge weight.
Buy one that feels around the same.
Sleep happy.

My son suffers from anxiety and has trouble sleeping. He uses one and he says it helps him fall asleep and stay asleep.

You'll never sleep well doing that. That's really hard on a person.

If your wife (or you) know anyone who crochets, ask for a "granny square" blanket. They're heavy. Also consider a down mattress pad, best sleep I ever got was on a feather bed, under a thick down comforter.

This was what I'm thinking, My Great grandmother made quilts out of scraps of whatever she had around. Being a farm family there was a lot of denim in them. They weren't very hot but they weighed a ton. If you want heavy look for depression era quilts...

My grandma made me a "quilt" out of old jeans when I was young. It's heavy, easy to make and cheap if you have access to a bunch of old jeans.

I love that shit lol. When you are in the doctors office or dentist and they have to take x-rays, the moment they slip that cover on you, it is very comforting. I almost wish they wouldn't remove it haha. However, if you are needing that... typically it is a shitty day.

My daughter has one too. She suffers from PTSD and anxiety. Unfortunately it doesn't help enough.

I tried one of those weighted blankets. I fall asleep in minutes anyway and sleep pretty good, but I slept like the dead with that thing.

The wife bought one just to give it a try and it gives you that heavy stack of quilts feel without too much insulating heat. After awhile you wake up feeling like you have a truck parked on you though, and it feels good to kick it off. I've only grabbed it a couple times, but it's cool to have around. It's nice for a late morning nap.

My Mom was from up in Northern Iowa. They sleep with many heavy blankets to stay warm. My Grandmother made me a few blankets as a child that I still have. They were a couple layers of flannel in them. They are warm and heavy without being thick/bulky. If you could find something like that, I think it would suit your needs.

It's actually a decent way to go. I have a Hungarian one for when it gets fucking cold, just throw it on top of the other blanket so you don't get the itch.

My US Army one is much thinner though.
