Great blanket for my little one. The only thing I wish was different was how it's sewn with the beading. The beads fall to the sides when using it. Do you have one that's sewn with squares that keep the beads more evenly distributed? I might have missed that when shopping.

We accept paypal, Etsy gift cards, and major credit cards. Payment is required before any order can commence.
Shipping
We will ship your blanket in 1-5 business days depending on the order size. Baby blankets generally ship within 1-2 business days while larger blankets have a longer production time and usually take more like 3 days to ship out. We use USPS with delivery confirmation so that you can track your order.

If you need it by a certain date, just send us a convo! We can work something out.
Refunds and Exchanges
Cotton & Laden offers pre-made and made-to-order blankets. All pre-made weighted blankets are eligible for returns within 14 days of receipt. Custom made-to-order blankets (larger than 2 lbs.) are generally ineligible for return. We want you to love your blanket, though, so send us a message and we'll figure out how to make it right. In the unlikely event of a defective blanket, we will happily replace or repair it.
Additional policies and FAQs
FAQ's

How do you know how heavy to make these blankets?
Weighted blankets have long been used for autistic children. Occupational therapists generally recommend 10% of the child's body weight + 1 lb. We use the same reasoning for our blankets. The average birth weight is around 7 lbs, and babies grow very quickly, so our blankets weigh a little less than 2 lbs.

What about when my child grows?
We still use a 2-lb. weighted blanket with our second son (1 year old) and it continues to provide him comfort.

What if my blanket seems too heavy?
If possible pull it down so that some of the weight is below your child's feet. Or just wait until they grow a little more. Adult supervision is recommended.

What is the difference between a weighted blanket and a swaddling blanket?
Good question! Weighted blankets provide comfort, security and warmth while swaddling blankets keep the babies limbs from flailing about and re-enact the snugness of the womb. We swaddled our babies and used a weighted blanket together until our babies grew too strong for the swaddle, at which point we used just a weighted blanket. Weighted blankets are also great in a pinch when your baby has fallen asleep and you just want to put something on them to keep them sleeping.
