They're phenomenal. I typically sleep very poorly and toss and turn all night. The blanket isn't a 100% cure, but it absolutely helps comfort me and keep me more still. I sleep a lot better with it

you can use them during the day too.

They are designed to tap into a natural reaction to being cuddled and squeezed which relaxes you.

I think Temple Grandin might have discovered this when she used to go in a cow squeezer?

But the cow squeezers exist to relax the cows.
