Tiny glass beads sewn into the quilting to help the blanket weigh down on you, supposed to help the user feel safe, cuddled... LOVED?

What do you think of these?

I started a weird thing a few years ago.  I couldn't comfortably lay on my back.  My stomach just felt uncomfortable.  Coincidentally, I bought a buckwheat pillow--that I didn't like.  I started draping it across my stomach and have slept great ever since.

 

TLDR:  I'd like to try one, as well.

This is what I’m thinking - I only ever sit and relax comfortably when I have a pillow on my lap, or hugging one to my chest/stomach. I think it’s the same idea.

There are cheaper versions of the original - but most reviews say that they leak beads

Wasn’t a jab, but usually those weighted things are designed for autistic people... I guess it allows them to feel like they’re being hugged without physical contact with another person

If I hire a personal aide he’s going to be doing more than swaddling me.
