How to Choose the Right 'Size & Weight' Weighted Blanket:
Choosing a Cute & Simple Designs Weighted Blanket is based on your individual needs.
What your Occupational Therapist or Doctor recommends. If you don’t have one: 10% of child’s body weight plus one pound.
What your Occupational Therapist or Doctor recommends. If you don’t have one 10% of body weight plus 2-3 lbs depending on your needs. (eg. High Anxiety add 3 lbs)

The industry standard is that most OT’s and Dr's recommend 10% of body weight plus a couple of pounds. Some people prefer more weight, some people prefer less weight.
If you or your loved one is a sensory person, with sensory processing disorder, or issues where you or your loved one are seeking cuddling or weight on you, any amount of weight will make you feel better, so you can rest assured when you order a weighted blanket, that there is no magic formula. Weighted blankets help, so we have created a chart with the lighter side of how much weight you should order to the heavier side of what you should order, depending on your weight. CSD has seen people order blankets that are too heavy, so we feel that if you choose the lighter side of the chart, it will still provide great benefits for sleep and relaxation.
Cute & Simple Designs has taken orders for and sold over 1000 blankets to customers so we are sharing our experiences with you and our philosophy on what has worked with our customers.
