Chrissy Teigen asks if she needs to be ‘swaddled’ to sleep well — the answer might be yes

DrLullaby’s founder, Lisa Medalie, PsyD, DBSM contributes to this Yahoo Lifestyle article, on the concept of weighted blankets and their potential sleep benefits.

Lisa Medalie, a Behavioral Sleep Medicine Specialist at the University of Chicago, points out that the “gold standard” of treatment for insomnia is Cognitive Behavioral Treatment, which “helps you change actions or thoughts that hurt your ability to sleep well.” But she agrees that Mundt’s product seems like a good one. “The concept is interesting,” Medalie tells Yahoo Lifestyle, noting that she couldn’t recommend it with certainty in the absence of large-scale clinical trials. “Intuitively, the idea of reigniting the sensation of being swaddled could again perhaps derive some benefit.”
