Great fabric choices
Does Your Child Struggle to Sleep?
If you struggle to get your child to sleep – then here are 4 ways Calming Moments’ weighted blankets can help.
1. Soothe them to sleep
Our customers tell us that it’s like being a hug that lasts the whole night.
It keeps your child feeling safe and secure
2. Calm foverwhelm
Weighted blankets use a firm, gentle pressure known as “Deep Pressure Touch”.
It first switches off your child’s body’s “fight or flight” response.
This calms their feelings of overwhelm and confusion.
3. Relieve anxiety
Deep Pressure Touch also slows the heart and breathing rates.
This means that their body feels physically calmer.
And they feel less anxious.
4. Reduce feelings of stress
Lastly, Deep Pressure Touch floods your child’s blood stream with “feel-good” neurotransmitters and hormones. These calm the mind.
The end result is that they feel less stressed. So that they can go to sleep more easily and sleep peacefully for longer.
Some of Our Customers' Real-life Stories
“Like Someone Was Cuddling Me”
We brought a blanket for our son, who’s always been a restless light sleeper but not only that needs the touch and comfort of someone next to him.
We had exhausted all avenues and were exhausted ourselves.
It’s always been that way since he was born, he’s now 6.
A few family members made the comment about trying a weighted blanket and we thought what have to got to lose and ordered one.
Calming Moments were so easy to work with and our order arrived yesterday. He was so excited when we put it on his bed.
This morning our son walked into our room and said “I stayed in my bed the whole night, my blanket was so good mum. It was like someone was cuddling me the whole time”.
I wish we had ordered one a lot sooner! We can’t thank you enough! We’ll definitely be back soon for more.

“Used to Take Her 39 Minutes to Settle”
My daughter has been sleeping under her blanket for just 1 week.
It USED to take her at least 39 minutes to settle down and go to sleep. Last night she was completely gone in 2-3 minutes.
She USED to have night terrors 4-5 times a night, screaming in absolute fright and scaring me into an almost heart attack.
She hasn’t had a single one, not one, since the first night of using her Calming Moments blanket.
Thank you. Thank you. THANK YOU!!!!

“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.

The Children’s Weighted Blanket Specialist
Calming Moments specialises in making children’s weighted blankets.
We custom-make them with the right weight for each child’s unique body.
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 equal sized pockets. This spreads the weight evenly so that you get a consistent calming effect.
- Two layers of cotton wadding keep the beads in place. This means that the weight doesn’t “bunch” or “pool”.
(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.)
