FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What exactly are kids weighted blanket anyway?
A weighted blanket is heavier than your typical duvet or quilt. Ours range from 5.5KG - 11KG, and are avaialble for adults in single, double, or king sizes, and 2 - 4kg for kids in single sizes. The right size depends on the size and weight of the person using it. Our blankets are weighed down with tiny quartz glass pellets that moulds to the shape of your body. The pellets are blended with a plush filler and encased in ultra-soft, 100% cotton or Eucalyptus.

What weight should I choose?
Ideally, your weighted blanket should be 8-12% of your body weight. If your weight is suitable for a number of sizes, then really, your ideal weight comes down to preference. Don’t choose a blanket that’s too heavy for your weight range: the last thing you need is to be that person who got stuck underneath a blanket. Or, worse still, that person who couldn’t even get underneath their blanket in the first place.

Tell me more about Deep Touch Pressure.
We’re glad you asked! Deep Touch Pressure (DTP) is the term for when pressure is applied equally across the body, which is known to have a calming and organising effect on the nervous system. This kind of technique, applied through a hug, or say, a heavy blanket, has been shown to increase the release of dopamine and serotonin (the ‘happy hormones’) by around 30%, and decrease the stress hormone cortisol by the same amount. This enables the production of melatonin, the hormone that helps you sleep.

How to use

Using your Mela Blanket
Using your Mela Blanket is easy. Once you’re in bed or in your chill space, arrange the weighted blanket so that it evenly covers your body. To increase the weight in any area, fold the blanket in half. You can place the weighted blanket on top or beneath your duvet if you like or just use it on its own.

Individual Use
Kids Weighted blankets are designed to be used by individuals for optimal weight distribution. Each member of a couple should use his or her own blanket.

Pets
Does a beloved pet share your bed? At Mela, we love a good cuddle too, but please be aware that our fabrics, while high-quality, are not claw or bite-proof.

Protect your blanket
Protect your blanket from direct sources of heat, as heat could damage the glass pellets inside. This product is heavy and for adult use only. Do not leave a child or pet unattended!

How we give back

With each purchase, we protect 1000-square-feet of the Amazonian rainforest, give 1% of profits to mental health charity Young Minds and provide free weighted blankets to special needs schools :)

Create calm bedtime vibes

If your kid struggles to settle, suffers from ADHD, or is easily overstimulated, a weighted blanket can help to reduce restlessness and create a sense of calm. It can take the anxiety out of your bedtime routine, making space for a bedtime story and deep, restorative rest.

Reclaim your evenings

Whether your kid is scared of the dark, is a natural night owl, or will only sleep with you in the bed, a weighted blanket can help to soothe them to sleep. It reduces the chance of tears or tantrums from either you or your child, and frees your evenings up for much-needed R&R.

Drift off to good dreams

A weighted blanket can help to reduce night time anxiety, so your child feels reassured and comforted throughout the night. It means they're more likely to sleep deeply and get back to sleep when woken, so you might just get your bed all to yourself, all night long.

Trusted quality, guaranteed

Our blankets ship free, and if your child isn't sleeping better within 30 nights, we’ll give you a full refund & free return. No questions asked. What’s not to love?
