The Sleep Doctor, Best Design - 2023
"The majority of our testers enjoyed the design of the Baloo Weighted Blanket, which is quilted with tight baffles to evenly distribute the fill. A slim profile and breathable cotton shell makes the blanket a good option for hot sleepers — especially those who have felt uncomfortably warm with other weighted blankets — and four weight options covers a wide range of body types."

"I actually sleep under a Baloo blanket every night, because well, you can measure that it works...."

"A weighted blanket can help promote a deep relaxation that feels like getting a firm hug. They typically come in different weights, so according to Baloo, it’s best to choose one that’s 8 to 12 percent of your body weight. It shouldn’t feel like a coffin, but it should feel secure. And if getting a good night’s rest is the reason you’re offline, we are here for it."

"Regardless of the many positive claims I read online, there was a looming skepticism on whether this blanket would work for me — as if I were the exception. However, the blanket did work, and I now fall asleep within minutes each night sans anxiety. The past few mornings I have jumped out of bed well-rested and unnaturally chipper. The only dilemma now is that I am too comfortable to get out of bed."

"Come at me, deep sleep. Baloo's breathable cotton blanket comes in various weights depending on your mattress and is double-quilted to avoid bunching. Added bonus: You can throw it in the normal wash, and each order comes with a download of soothing music for maximum meditation. Yes, please!"

Refinery29 - March 12, 2020
"This is an outstanding quality weighted blanket. I did TONS of research before settling on this one. I found out who the owner of the company is and was impressed with her company mission and production process. Initially, I only wanted a blanket but got to support an amazing company as well. Win-win. FYI: There are multiple features that make this blanket superior. The blanket can be washed! The glass filling is evenly distributed and silent. The weight doesn’t shift at all. The material is the same as organic. The material breathes and I don’t get hot."
Well Insiders - May 16, 2019
"The weighted blanket has become an invaluable part of my routine, both for better sleep and for a calmer demeanor. My inner skeptic, along with my inner anxiety, is fully abated."
