Soothe Kids After a Long Day of Homeschooling with This Sleep Essential

You have gone above and beyond to transform your home into a classroom. Maybe you invested in a multitasking desk or perhaps you organized your little one’s tools into neat trays. But while it feels good to have everything looking under control, there’s still the matter of book reports, pop quizzes, and Zoom presentations—all stressors for kids who are still adjusting to a new homeschooling schedule. You might not notice it taking a toll on their day, but what about at night when it’s time to go to bed? 

Bearaby, the female-founded sustainable weighted blanket company, has partnered with Pottery Barn Kids to launch Nappling, a throw designed specifically for children aged four to 14 to improve their sleep cycles and help them relax. Similar to the anxiety-reducing picks that have been popular with adults, this eight-pound option (available in a dark blue, light gray, and rosey pink) applies just enough pressure to help kids fall and stay asleep. It essentially makes them feel like they’re being hugged or swaddled all night long. 

Unlike the super-heavy blankets we’ve all been using to soothe ourselves come bedtime, Nappling is a lot more affordable. The blanket, available to shop in select stores and online now, retails for $150. The piece is hand-knitted with organic cotton (no synthetic fibers in sight) so your child won’t get overheated. It’s also machine-washable—a big bonus for parents. This chunky, child-size essential is the tool you didn’t know you needed to get through the semester.
