Australian-made weighted blankets that calm kids’ anxiety and help them sleep
Custom-made to have the best calming effect for each unique body
Calming Moments is the kid’s weighted blanket specialist. Here are 4 reasons why:
We make all our weighted blankets in Mandurah, WA.
We use as many locally sourced inputs as we can source.
WIDEST CHOICE OF FABRICS AND COLOURS
We have the widest choice of colours and fabrics available.
If you can’t find what you want in our library, call us or e-mail and we’ll source it for you.
CUSTOM-MADE WITH THE RIGHT WEIGHT FOR EACH UNIQUE BODY
OTs recommend that single bed blankets be 10% of the user’s weight for the best calming effect.
We custom-make each weighted blanket with the correct weight for each individual user.
(You’ll find our weight recommendations on the product pages.)
All our weighted blankets are machine-washable on cold, gentle cycle if your machine can take the weight.
Please select your bed size for your weighted blanket from the menu below.
As seen on:
Weighted blankets can help calm children mentally and physically if they suffer from anxiety, feelings of stress and overwhelm or struggle to get to sleep or stay asleep.
Kid’s weighted blankets 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 a child’s 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.
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 child’s unique body.
This also means that you can use them confidently, knowing that they are safe to use.
(We recommend that your child should be able to lift the blanket off themselves. Please do not use a weighted blanket on a child younger than two years old.)

Here are just some of our customers’ stories about how their Calming Moments’ premium quality weighted blanket helped their child.
“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!
“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.
“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.
Was also a massive help keeping my son’s anxiety levels down for a recent trip to the city and a sleep study. Perfect travel size as well!!!
Also the customer service is above and beyond! Looking forward to making a future purchases! Thanks Calming Moments ❤️
“WISH I’D BOUGHT ONE YEARS AGO”
This is a very belated thank you.
Can’t thank you enough for my son’s weighted blanket. Beautifully and well made and very quick to arrive.
He sleeps so much better now. Wish I’d bought one years ago!
“ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS WE OWN”
I ordered a 2kg lap blanket for my son’s birthday in June. It is now one of the most important things we own and goes everywhere with him.
We use it over his body during nappy changes, round his shoulders during toiletting and over his lap when sitting.
The blanket is beautifully made and I love the funky monkey print.
Will probably invest in a larger size blanket soon. Very highly recommended.
“OUR DAUGHTER IS STILL AND SLEEPING AWESOME”
The blanket I ordered is beautifully made and best of all quiet! No rattly bead noise at all, it has been a God-send after 7 years no sleep.
Our daughter is still and sleeping awesome 😊
“FANTASTIC SERVICE, FAST TURNAROUND, PRODUCT IS WELL MADE”
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.
“THESE BLANKETS ARE FANTASTIC”
These blankets are fantastic, my daughter has ptsd anxiety depression and stress from car accident and she uses hers every night and got another one ordered.
Highly recommend and so lovely to speak to 😊
“TOTALLY AMAZING QUALITY”
Had tears in my eyes when opening the weight blanket, so soft and not having beads rolling around, just looks like a normal bed quilt so my girls don’t feel different.
Totally amazing quality and looking at ordering more for my other children. Thank you so much.
