Weighted Blankets for Beds

Our customers tell us that our weighted blankets shorten the time it takes them to get to sleep and help them sleep longer. Weighted blankets have also been scientifically proven to reduce anxiety.

This is because weighted blankets use Deep Pressure Touch. Deep Pressure Touch is often used by Occupational Therapists and is firm, gentle pressure that is applied consistently.

The weight of a weighted blanket applies this same Deep Pressure Touch. It feels like a great big hug.

Deep Pressure Touch physically calms the body and the mind

Deep Pressure touch literally soothes both the body and mind. Clinical studies – like this one – have measured this physical reaction. 

It works by acting on your central nervous system and causing two responses. Our central nervous systems are made up of two separate parts: the sympathetic nervous system and the parasympathetic nervous system.

Response #1: It dampens the “fight or flight” state

The sympathetic nervous system keeps you in an alert state. It is commonly known as the “fight or flight” response.

And it is – simply – exhausting to be in this state for extended periods of time.

Deep Pressure Touch shuts it down.

Response #2: It soothes the body and mind

Next, Deep Pressure Touch activates the parasympathetic nervous system. This part of the central nervous system releases endorphins – the body’s “happy” hormones. These slow your heart rate and rate of breathing. This makes you feel more relaxed.

And then it triggers the brain to release serotonin. This is the neurotransmitter that helps you sleep.

And this, in a nutshell, is how weighted blankets work to help you go to sleep faster and stay asleep longer.

Why Calming Moments’ weighted blankets?

Our weighted blankets fit on top of a bed with no overhang. This gives the best sensory effect. 

But here are some other reasons to buy a Calming Moments’ weighted blanket.

  • All Calming Moments’ weighted blankets are made to our high quality standards right here in Australia. We make each and every blanket with love, care and attention to detail. Our weighted blankets are certified Australian-made.
  • We source as many of our inputs as we can in Australia – so that you know they are completely safe. Our Australian-made micro glass beads are quiet and don’t make any “swishing” sounds so that you can sleep better.
  • Our cotton weighted blankets are machine-washable on a cold, gentle cycle.
  • We back each and every weighted blanket we make with the Calming Moments’ unique 2-year guarantee.
  • Our weighted blankets are suited to our warm Australian climate.
  • We carefully size each blanket’s pockets so that the weights don’t gather and cause undue pressure.

Occupational Therapists recommend using 10% of your body weight for the best deep pressure touch effect in Single and King Single beds. We recommend adding 1kg extra to the Double and Queen Size blankets.

Easy to order, fantastic service, fast turnaround, product is well made. Highly recommend Calming Moments if you are looking for a weighted blanket, the blanket with micro beads instead of poly pellets is lovely and compact, my child loves it, it’s really helped her to settle at night.

I purchased three weighted blankets (one for hubby and I and one for each child) because I was sick of the lack of sleep I was getting due to everyone else. They take a little getting used to after a light feather doona but I absolutely swear by them! My husband (who suffers from a sleep disorder) says that he loves the weighted blanket and it has significantly reduced his need to take sleep medication.

He really noticed the difference when he went away and was without the blanket for a few days. I used to wake up at night and lay awake for ages but this doesn’t happen any more with the weighted blanket. The kids are both much more settled at night as well! Very happy with my purchase and would recommend them to anyone with sleep issues.

I have been using this blanket for 6 months now and it’s definitely the best buy ever in my life. I used to take 2-3hours just to fall asleep and can’t stay asleep because of anxiety. Now I fall asleep within half and hour and stay asleep most of the nights and feel refreshed in the morning. Not to mention that the blanket is very well stitched and the materials used inside the blanket are very fine and soft to touch. I can’t thank you enough for your good work in helping us.

I have A.D.D and bought a lap pad to sit on my lap at work to help me stay calm and focussed. I’m honestly so impressed with my entire purchase. The pad itself is fantastic and I am way less fidgety when I’m using it, the colour choices are great, and they’re really well made. But the best part by far is the customer service. Your order is updated with notes through the entire process so you know exactly what’s happening and when, and it’s clear the staff are passionate about what they do. Highly recommend.

Would just like to say that I purchased a weighted blanket for my suspected austism spectrum 4yr old son at Calming moments on recommendations on afterpay page and from friends. I received the blanket in the mail today and my son has hardly left it alone. I would also like to say the craftsmanship in these products are amazing I would rate them 5/5 stars and recommend them to anyone. I will also in the near future be ordering one for my 15 yr old a.d.d son as he keeps stealing it.

I was so sceptical initially cause I thought ‘well it’s only a blanket’. I read so many reviews and eventually thought fudge it, why not? Best decision I’ve ever made. I love my weighted blanket so much. It’s done wonders for me. I don’t think I’ve ever fallen asleep so fast so consecutively in my life. And it just gives me a sense of calm and protection I didn’t have before. Definitely recommend.

I ordered a custom made weighted blanket for my little boy who loves planets in the sparkly space material- it’s so beautiful and the service was amazing! It was made and arrived super quick in time for Christmas. The blanket is very well made and I love that it is Machine washable. Highly recommend Calming Moments.
