Helps My Teenager Sleep

Our son has been struggling to get enough sleep at night due to his ADHD and anxiety.

Three nights in and he is going to bed on time and I don’t hear him again as he’s falling asleep.

Thank you so much!

She's Much Calmer

My daughter has PTSD from a car accident last year and has been struggling as a result.

I researched the benefits of calming blankets and chose an Australian brand I could trust.

It helps calm her anxiety and that makes my life easier too.

Works Wonders

My 15-year old has really struggled in the past two years with lockdowns and iso and school opening inconsistently.

He’s missed his friends terribly and it’s affected his mental health.

I bought this blanket hoping it would help him feel less anxiety – and it really works for him.

I "Borrow" it While She's at School

Some of my daughter’s friends were raving about their calming blankets so we decided to try one.

Can’t tell you how astonished I am at the difference in her sleep – and that’s making a big difference to her day.

Especially with her school work.

Many occupational therapists recommend weighted calming blankets as an easy-to-use tool for teenagers with anxiety-induced insomnia. 

This is because weighted calming blankets are :

  • Easy to use;
  • Not invasive;
  • Clinically proven to improve sleep.

Clinical Studies Show Weighted Blankets Give a Better Night's Sleep

One Swedish Study “Positive Effects of a Weighted Blanket on Insomnia” investigated whether weighted calming blankets have a measured effect on sleep.

The study found: “The…weighted blanket….had a positive impact on sleep, both objectively and subjectively. A number of physiological and behavioural measures improved during weighted blanket use.”

The study found people using weighted blankets were 26 times more likely to achieve reduced insomnia than the control group. And 20 times more likely to have their insomnia go into remission.

When the participants used the weighted blanket, they had a calmer night’s sleep, with a decrease in movements.

Subjectively, they believed that using the blanket provided them with a more comfortable, better quality and more secure sleep.

Designed to have the Best Calming Effect for Teens' Bodies and Brains

The same study noted that a weighted calming blanket should have two characteristics to give the best sleep results.

A Calming Blanket should be the correct weight
1. The Weight Should Be Just Right

Professional therapists recommend that weighted calming blankets should be around 10% of your body weight.

This weight provides Deep Pressure Touch, which reduces the body’s arousal levels.

Each of our Teen Calming Blankets comes in 4 different weight options so that you can get the best calming weight for your teenager.

2. The Weight Must Be evenly Distributed Through the Blanket

We make each of our calming blankets for teens with 70 equal-sized pockets. We then sew an equal weight of tiny glass beads into each pocket.

This means that the weight is evenly distributed through the whole blanket for the best calming Deep Pressure Touch Effect.

Plus the glass beads don’t rattle or rustle so there is no noise to disturb you during the night.

So much better

I previously bought a weighted blanket from another company. They told me it was bamboo when it was really polyester and the quality was so bad it broke within two weeks. I was quite nervous about trying another one but this blanket is a completely different prodyct. Very well made and you can see the Australian difference. Thank you for a great product.

He's sleeping!

My 7 yo son has always been a terrible sleeper and it was affecting his schoolwork. A friend had bought her daughter one of these calming blankets and it worked like a charm for them. Happy to report it's working for my boy too. He's sleeping much better and doesn't have dark rings under his eyes anymore. Much happier mum as well.
