Weighted blankets can help calm you mentally and physically if you suffer from anxiety, feelings of stress and overwhelm or struggle to get to sleep or stay asleep.
They work by using gentle but firm Deep Pressure Touch.
Deep Pressure Touch is a gentle but firm pressure that works in 3 steps to calm your body and mind.
Deep Pressure Touch switches off your body’s “fight or flight” response.
Deep Pressure Touch physically slows your heart and breathing rates. This makes your body feel calmer.
Deep Pressure Touch then floods your blood stream with “feel good” neurotransmitters and hormones that calm the mind.
Custom-made with the right weight for your unique body
Occupational Therapists recommend that a single bed weighted blanket should be around 10% of the user’s body weight for the best calming effect. (We recommend slightly higher weights on the larger blankets as the weight is spread over a larger area. You’ll find our blanket weight recommendations on the product pages.)
The calming Deep Pressure Touch comes from the weight of the blanket. Our micro glass beads provide this weight.
- They are very fine so that you feel no hard edges. And – unlike poly pellets – there is no rustling, “swooshing” noise to disturb your sleep.
- We sew an equal weight of micro glass beads into identically sized pockets throughout the entire blanket. This spreads the weight evenly throughout the blanket so that you get a consistent calming effect.
- The beads are kept in place by two layers of wadding. This means that the weight doesn’t “bunch” or “pool”.
Only Calming Moments’ weighted blankets come in over 20 different weights so that you get the correct weight of weighted blanket that will maximise the calming effect for your unique body. This also means that you can use them confidently, knowing that they are safe to use.

“SEEMS TO BE HELPING MAKE HER ANXIETY EASIER”
I purchased one of your lovely travel blankets for my daughter.
She has loved it in the car and seems to be helping make her anxiety easier to manage which in turn makes it easier for me.
Your service was amazing and very fast.
“WAS A MASSIVE HELP KEEPING MY SON’S ANXIETY LEVELS DOWN”
We recently purchased a buddy blanket! Absolutely love it fantastic quality and super fast post.

“IT HELPED HER REGULATE HER MELTDOWN”
Just thought I would let you know that the sensory compression sheet has been a hit.
Miss 9 who was taking 2hrs plus to get to sleep is now out like a light within 30min.. life changing for her..
Today she was in total meltdown mode and she just went and hid in her bed in the sheet.. it really helped her regulate her melt down and she was out and happy again within minutes not hours.
It’s perfect weight for the Qld climate too.. she absolutely loves it..
“11 OUT OF 10 FOR SERVICE AND QUALITY”
11 out of 10 for service and quality.
My beautiful Amethyst buddy arrived today. She is everything I expected, and then some.
I had a big exciting day, received my first NDIS package and my buddy on the same day. I’ll definitely shop with you again. Thanks so very much.
“I AM FUNCTIONING SO MUCH BETTER WITH DEEP RESTFUL SLEEP”
I am a 55 year old female. I’ve had restless legs syndrome for many years, which includes my arms and wakes me up many times a night.
Having purchased a weighted blanket a week ago my restless legs and body has stayed calm and ‘normal’ and my sleep is so much deeper and restful.
I would recommend to anyone with this condition. I also deal with anxiety and feel I am functioning so much better with deep restful sleep.
“SUCH WONDERFUL WORKMANSHIP AND SHE HAS BEEN SLEEPING SO VERY WELL SINCE”
We had one made for our beautiful, Autistic daughter.
Such wonderful workmanship and she has been sleeping so very well since- I can’t thank you enough!
“THE WORKMANSHIP IS EXCELLENT”
The quality of your weighted blanket is amazing. The pellets are very fine and very user friendly which is really important for my ASD kids who don’t like bumps.
The workmanship is also excellent.
Our OTs hadn’t even heard of your company so we are happily singing your praises and spreading the word.
Integrity in business and especially in supports for special needs people is really appreciated!
“QUALITY HAS BEEN LONG-LASTING”
This is a very belated thank you.
Last year I ordered a weighted insert for my son’s bed and a travel blanket. It is still very much loved and I’m very pleased with them. It is perfect for in the car to calm down and keeps him entertained every now and then when he plays i-spy with it.
They look great and the quality has been wonderful and long-lasting.
Thank you again.
“I FEEL LIKE I’M GETTING A GREAT NIGHT’S SLEEP”
I didn’t realise how good sleep could be until I started using one of your weighted blankets.
I used to sleep very light and always woke up groggy.
Now I always feel like I’m getting a great night’s sleep. Thanks!
“THE QUALITY IS AMAZING”
They went above and beyond to find the fabric I requested and were very responsive with all of my questions!
Received the blankets today and the quality is AMAZING!!!
A huge thank you to the Calming Moments team!
“HE ABSOLUTELY LOVES IT”
We received our son’s blanket yesterday. He absolutely loves it! After looking online for a while no at sooo many types I am so happy we got one from you guys.
The quality is amazing and the personal touch with his name on it looks awesome.
Thanks again for a great product.
“I’M HAVING THE BEST SLEEP”
I was looking for a weighted blanket made in Australia. Calming Moments ticked all the boxes.
I was able to order a Super King Size Weighted Quilt Insert. Calming Moments kept me up to date with the progress of my order at all times via email.
The item arrived in a timely manner despite the COVID Crisis and it is really well made.
I’m having the best sleep since I started using the new insert. I would highly recommend this company if you would like to improve the quality of your sleep.
“IT’S WORTH THE MONEY”
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.
“AN AUSTRALIAN-MADE PRODUCT I COULD TRUST”
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!
