    I get even a couple of blankets on my feet, I am trying to throw them off. And I am one who wants warm, wife wants cold but still, heavy blankets?
    Sounds like a BS ad campaign to me. Why would anyone want weights around their blankets anyway, how would that EVER help warm you up? I bet it would feel more like a cocoon, or a sarcophagus....

    Looks like a general purpose thumbs down on someone who just hates us. If I said it is noon, at 12 o'clock and time for lunch that dude would thumb it down.

    The idea comes from weighted clothes that provide firm pressure in the form of a hat or vest, etc which are sometimes used for children on the ASD spectrum. They can help children feel more grounded and aid concentration in a classroom as the child feels more in touch with the position of their bodies and where they are in relation to other objects around them.

    We have a son who's on the autism spectrum ( Asperger syndrome) and we got him a "weighted" blanket for sleeping (he's very, very restless at night). It didn't seem to work. We figured nothing ventured, nothing gained and as it turned out the latter was the result.

    Sleep is a tricky one, I’m sure everyone slept better before computers?

    I did that to my sister as well. (She was 26 and didn't appreciate it).
