Why Calm Cub?
Here at Calm Cub, we set ourselves the challenge of creating the ideal weighted blanket, specifically for children. We wanted to take the science behind why weighted blankets work and apply that to child's needs and what you as a parent would look for. Every competitor we found was unattractive, uncomfortable and of poor quality; all things you don't want when investing in something for your child's health and wellbeing.
After doing our research, we aimed to create a product that was more pleasing to the eye, ultra comfortable, effective, and of the highest quality. Effective weight distribution was of course our priority, but we wanted Calm Cub to fit seamlessly into your lives, so we also made it visually appealing and of high quality materials, so it will last a lifetime. Every detail has been crafted with your child in mind.
Calm Cub excels above others out there and we know you and your family will benefit from the fruits of our labour - welcome to the Calm Cub club!
What are Weighted Blankets?
Weighted blankets are designed to relieve stress and create a sense of calm. They do that by providing pressure on the body
Our blankets are filled with glass beads to create the weight. Some also have extra layers of fabric to increase their heaviness. They come in different weights and sizes, and can be used by children and adults
How Weighted Blankets Work...
Weighted blankets work by applying pressure on the body which can increase the release of serotonin in the brain. This is sometimes called the “happy” chemical because it creates a sense of calm and well-being
Weighted blankets can help our special cubs because many of the challenges of Autism, ADHD and processing disorders can sometimes make it hard for them to feel a sense of calm. These challenges can include:
- Managing emotions
- Coping with feelings of anger
- Settling down after outbursts or over excitement
- Dealing with stress
- Winding down at night
Many children also have sensory issues. They may seek physical stimulation as a way to calm down
Weighted blankets help children self-regulate and feel more calm and relaxed creating a Calm Cub!
