How we make it:
Each Kid’s Smooth Minky Calming Blanket has a front of plush smooth minky. The back is a matching cotton drill.

We line each blanket with two layers of cotton wadding for the most comfort and softness. The wadding also keeps our micro glass beads in place so that they don’t move around while your child sleeps.

The Calming Blankety Co makes this Calming Blanket with 63 equal sized pockets. We put an equal weight of micro glass beads into each pocket. This means the weight is evenly distributed through the blanket.

The team double stitches each blanket on the edges for the greatest strength.

Can my child use this calming blanket safely?
Your child can safely use this calming blanket if they can lift it off themselves.

The Kid’s Smooth Minky Calming Blanket comes in 4 different weight options. This means you can choose the best option for your child that is also safe to use.

Please use the following guide to choose the best calming blanket weight:

  • 2.0kg: for children weighing up to 20kg;

Interested in a calming blanket but need your questions answered?

Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about weighted blankets.

A calming blanket is heavier than an ordinary blanket as we fill it with micro glass beads.

This extra weight presses down on your body. It causes calming proprioceptive input, which therapists also call Deep Pressure Touch.

This calming pressure feels like a hug.

It also switches off your body’s “fight or flight” response and causes your brain to release a number of “feel good” hormones and neurotransmitters including dopamine and serotonin.

The combined action means that you feel less stressed and anxious and sleep better.

You use a weighted calming blanket just like an ordinary blanket. Place it on top of your bed over a sheet or other covers if you like.

Unfortunately no we cannot add more weight.

Buying a weighted calming blanket for a child who is close to the upper end of the weight range? Then we suggest you buy the next weight up to give room for growth.

Professional therapists advise using a weighted blanket that is around 10% of your body weight.

You will find specific blanket weight recommendations on our product pages.

Yes it is safe to use a calming blanket the whole night through.

Children under 2 should not use a weighted blanket. Please make sure that your child can lift the blanket off their body unaided.

In addition, people who experience claustrophobia should not use a weighted calming blanket.

You can machine-wash your calming blanket on cold, delicate cycle.

If the blanket is heavier than 8kg, please take it to a laundromat and use an industrial machine.

We recommend one blanket per user due to the personal nature of the calming weight.

Occupational Therapists recommend that a calming blanket should be around 10% of your body weight.

7 Benefits of Calming Blankets for Children

Children can benefit from using a calming blanket in the following ways:

  1. It will help them go to sleep easier.
  2. They will sleep more deeply and for longer.
  3. It helps them calm down from meltdowns or being overwhelmed with huge emotions.
  4. Children can sit or lie under them to relieve anxiety or panic attacks.
  5. They can use it as a “safe space” to cuddle under when they need some “me time”.
  6. Children are better able to focus and concentrate during the day if they have had enough sleep.
  7. Better sleep also improves their mood.

She can create her own calm space

My daughter regularly suffers from sensory overwhelm. She uses the calming blanket to create a little "cocoon" to make her feel sae and secure.
