Do you find yourself freezing your butt off in the middle of the night because your partner always steals the covers? Me too. And even though I have a large king size comforter, as soon as my hubby rolls over on his side, he takes the blanket with him leaving me exposed to the harsh elements of our bedroom. No fair! And if you live with a blanket hog too, you know how frustrating this can be.
But there is hope out there for those of us who always end up losing our blanket in the middle of the night.
Allow me to introduce you to the Blanket Buddy and take back what’s rightfully yours – your freaking blanket!
Are you tired of freezing your butt off in the middle of the night because your partner always steals the blanket? This one invention will help you deal with a blanket hog and still keep the peace. Click To Tweet
What is a Blanket Buddy?
This ingenious invention is actually a retractable suspender system that keeps your covers place no matter how much you or your partner tosses and turns.
So even if your dear, sweet blanket hog rolls over, the Blanket Buddy will retract the covers right back where they belong. On you!
It’s made of high-quality woven elastic in your choice of white or black and has clamps available in 5 colors which fasten your sheet and blanket together to keep them in place.
The clamps have plastic teeth which will not harm your bedding. And the straps are adjustable so they can fit on any standard size bed from a crib to a king size mattress.
But the Blanket Buddy does more than just keep your blankets in place. It helps keep the peace! Here’s why…
Who you callin’ a Blanket Hog?!
Sleeping with a blanket hog is no fun
Unless your partner is literally grabbing and pulling the blanket off you while you sleep, you know that it’s probably not intentional. They just roll over and the blanket goes with them.
But when you are the one waking up freezing all the time, all bets are off.
What was supposed to be a peaceful night sleep just turned into a tug of war. Now it’s intentional!
If you sleep by yourself…
Here’s a scenario you might be familiar with. You’ve had a hard day, and want nothing more than to sleep peacefully in your nice warm bed.
If the stresses of the day end up giving you nightmares, you may find yourself tossing and turning, kicking off the covers and sheets and leaving them bunched up in a pile or on the floor (like your dirty laundry in the corner).
Your kid is the Tasmanian Devil when he sleeps
I don’t know about you, but my kid performs Kung Fu in his sleep. He spins, twists, and kicks and ends up with the blankets half off in the middle of the night.
It gets old having to cover him up every night just to have him kick the covers off again.
It’s even more fun when we co-sleep! Not only does he kick the covers off, but he also kicks me and hubby. And the dog.
Can we just talk about the dog?
Don’t get me wrong, I love my dog. And I don’t really mind him sleeping in bed with us.
But when he plants his fat butt down on the bed, there is no moving him. He is firmly in place with the covers under him and off of me.
And if you co-sleep with your pets, you know you don’t dare disturb them by grabbing the blankets or actually *gasp* shifting position.
Maybe, just maybe YOU are the blanket hog…
Shame! Shame! Shame!
But if you want to be a considerate partner, the Blanket Buddy is your answer.
And as an added bonus, Blanket Buddy allows you to make the bed with just a flick of the wrist. So now you have no excuse for not making the bed.
How to Install the Blanket Buddy
- Place your blanket buddy on the top of the bed and use the adjuster to increase or decrease the size of the strap and leave about 3-4 inches to hang off of each side.
- Starting at least 4-6 inches from the foot of the bed, fully open the clip and place your top sheet (if you use one) and blanket inside the clip and fasten.
- Slip the elastic under your mattress and walk it to the other side of the bed and clamp the sheet and blanket on the other side.
Boom! You’re done.
Check out my demo below:
- If you have a footboard – you may need to physically lift the mattress slightly to ensure the elastic is securely underneath. Enlist the help of a friend if you have a heavy mattress.
- If one side of your bed is against the wall – you may want to fold the blanket a bit before clipping in place. This helps keep the blanket centered on the bed.
