For Shannan in North Carolina, an 18 lb twin size weighted blanket was the solution for her insomnia:
I meant to send this a while ago, but thank you so much for the
blanket! It has helped with my insomnia more than I ever imagined. I'm
no longer tossing and turning at night, waking up countless times, or

problem though-I never want to get out of bed in the morning!! Thanks again, Shannan"

The blanket from Cozy Calm is impossible to get off my son. He
refuses to even share with his sister he loves it so much. He also brings it

Also, my friend was taking a nap on my couch one afternoon and I had the a/c on
full blast so figuring he was cold I put the blanket on him and when
he woke up he said "oh man that was the best nap I've ever had". He
was very impressed with the blanket as well."
