How it’s made:

  • Each weighted blanket’s calming effect comes from its weight. This comes from filling each blanket with the correct weight of micro glass beads.
  • The glass beads are the size of mustard seeds with smooth edges. 
  • Each blanket has evenly spaced, individually sewn pockets. These are each filled with an equal weight of micro glass beads. This means that the blanket’s weight is evenly distributed across your whole body.
  • We fill each blanket with two layers of cotton wadding. This keeps the glass beads evenly spread through each pocket.

Here are answers to some frequently asked questions. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have a question that hasn’t been answered here.
 

Weighted blankets work because they are heavier than an ordinary blanket.

The extra weight provides calming Deep Pressure Touch.

Deep Pressure Touch is a firm but gentle consistent pressure. It triggers two responses in the body that bring feelings of reduced anxiety.

It firstly shuts off the body’s “fight or flight” instinct that is governed by the sympathetic nervous system.

It then activates the parasympathetic nervous system. This causes both the breathing rate and heart rate to slow and the muscles relax.

The end result is that you feel more relaxed and less anxious.

The extra weight of a weighted blanket gives your body soothing Deep Pressure Touch.

Deep Pressure Touch is constant, gentle pressure that first works to deactivate the body’s sympathetic nervous system (the body’s “fight or flight instinct).

Next, Deep Pressure Touch switches the body’s parasympathetic nervous system on.

The parasympathetic nervous system works to calm the body and mind by slowing the heart rate, reducing the respiration rate and relaxing the muscles.

All this helps relax your body so that you can sleep easily and soundly.

The weighted blanket’s area is the same as the top of your bed.

We make them this size as studies have shown this maximises the calming effect.

If you prefer the feeling of being cocooned, the please take a look at our weighted quilt insert options.

Occupational Therapists recommend that a single bed weighted blanket should be 10% of your body weight.

If your weight is “in between” weights or you want to give a child some room for growth, please choose the next weight up.

Larger blankets with a wider area need to be a bit heavier to achieve the same level of calming Deep Pressure Touch.

Each product page contains guidance on the best weight to choose for your blanket.

Yes – children younger than two should not use a weighted blanket.

The NDIS funds weighted blankets in some circumstances.

You can find out more at https://calmingmoments.com.au/ndis/

If you are self-managed, you can order online, pay online and then reallocate the funds to yourself. Alternatively, we will send you an invoice and you can make direct payment.

If you are plan-managed, we will send your case manager an invoice that they can submit. (Please ensure that a weighted blanket has already been added to your plan or they will not pay for it.)

If you are NDIA-managed, we will submit the payment request through the portal. Please make sure it has been approved as part of your plan. We will make your blanket and ship it to you as soon as we receive payment.

Calming Moments’ weighted blankets are available in weights from 1.5kg to 12kg.

The weight is supplied by micro glass beads.

These are incredibly fine and – unlike poly pellets – have no sharp edges that could disturb your rest.

They are also silent, unlike poly pellets that can make whooshing and rustling noises.

Calming Moments operates from its factory in Mandurah, WA.

As a result, all our weighted blankets are certified Australian-made.

The outside of the weighted blankets is made in your choice of fabric type and colour.

We have a wide range of coloured cottons, sensory raised dot minky and smooth minky.

We sew two layers of cotton wadding inside the fabric.

We then sew evenly spaced pockets into the blanket and fill each pocket with an equal weight of micro glass beads.

The cotton wadding helps keep the beads spread evenly through each pocket.

This means your body gets consistent Deep Pressure Touch. It gives you the best calming effect.

All Calming Moments’ weighted blankets are completely machine-washable on cold, gentle cycle if your machine can take the weight.

If not, please take it to a laundromat and wash it there. Please do not tumble dry or dry clean.

Calming Moments makes weighted blankets for people of all ages from two-years old. 

We make them in all standard bed sizes. There is no need for a specific “adult”, “teen” or “child” size.

Instead, choose the bed size that suits you. 

The weight is the special ingredient that will make the weight work for your body. Please use the recommended weight guidance on each product page.

If you share a bed and your partner doesn’t wish to use a weighted blanket, then please get a single or king single size for your side of the bed.

If you and your partner are both using the blanket, then please use your average weights to calculate the blanket’s weight.

Calming Moments makes weighted blankets for all people over the age of 2 years old.

This includes teenagers, who benefit from the calming effect as their bodies and brains go through significant – and stressful – physical change.

Please choose the bed size that your teenager uses and then select your preferred fabric option.

The calming “magic” is caused by the blanket’s weight. Please use the specific weight recommendations on each product page. These are based on Occupational Therapists’ advice and use your teenager’s body weight to determine the correct weight for their own weighted blanket.

Calming Moments is the only weighted blanket manufacturer that produces weighted blankets with over 20 different weights. 

This means that your child can get the correct weight blanket for their body. This provides the best calming effect AND is safe to use.

Please use the recommended weights on each product page to determine the right weight for your child’s calming blanket.

To buy a weighted blanket for your child, just select the correct bed size. Then choose your favourite fabric option and pick your weight and fabric.

We’ll custom-make it for you as soon as possible. 

Occupational Therapist’s recommend that a Single Bed weighted blanket should be around 10% of your weight.
 
We recommend selecting the next weight up if you are “inbetween” weights or want some room for growth for a child.
 
Please use the calculator below to help you choose the best weight for your blanket.
 

We cover all Calming Moments’ weighted blankets with a 2-year guarantee.

This means we will repair or replace it in the unusual event that the stitching breaks.

“Fallen Asleep Within 5 Minutes”
Calming Moments weighted blanket review
5/5

Highly Recommend.

My daughter has a hearing loss and one of her biggest struggles has been calming down enough at the end of the day to sleep.

Usually it takes her hours and lots of tears but the last 2 weeks she’s been using her blanket and has fallen asleep within 5 minutes of going to bed.

“Teenager's Best Night's Sleep”
Calming Moments weighted blanket review
5/5

I bought a Calming Moments’ weighted blanket for my teenager who struggles with many challenges.

I researched whether they worked or not, and then selected an Australian-made product I could trust.

I was sceptical but desperate to find a solution to at least one of our problems.

It has been a God-send from the first night.

My teenager now wakes feeling ‘good’ instead of ‘blah’, which makes their day so much easier to cope with.

A huge thank you to the Calming Moments’ team!

– Suzette S

“Worth the Money”
Calming Moments weighted blanket review
5/5

There are many types of weighted blankets in the market, cheaper or more expensive.

I really wanted an Australian-made product after all this COVID year… and I’m very happy with my purchase.

My daughter doesn’t know that is a calming blanket, she just loves how it is ‘hugging’ her and that it’s a bit heavy and she sleeps so well during the night!!!

We like the design and distribution of weight, size and material.

I liked that I could choose the right size, design and weight. It’s worth the money.
