Feng Shui is all about creating a flow of energy throughout your home and your life. What better way to bring up your baby than in a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere. You want your baby to feel safe and reassured in his or her bedroom. With this in mind you would place the cot away from the window and away from the door. A nice solid wall behind the cot gives baby a sense of security. Nothing can sneak up on him.
Light and fresh-air are very important in a baby’s bedroom. You want to have window coverings that block very strong sunlight or car headlights but you want to give the impression of lightness and airiness to the room so you will not want dark or heavy drapes. The colour of the room is very important. Babies need lots of rest. They grow while they are sleeping so you want them to sleep as much as possible. A pastel coloured room is restful and refreshing. Baby blues, soft pinks and restful greens, lovely lilacs and pale lemon yellows are all great colours for a baby’s bedroom.
Mobile’s and cot toys that are suspended above baby’s head are great as long as they are not too noisy. A gently wafting mobile is restful and gives baby something to dream about but a loud, jerky harshly coloured toy will give everyone nightmares. Bright colours and stimulating toys have their place but not in the bedroom. A separate space or room should be made for playing. Bright, exciting colours, posters and lots of toys and activities to stimulate the senses are perfect for play areas. You should have a place to put everything when playtime is over. A large toy box, a cupboard or even just some baskets will do. Clutter is not a good thing for any home, so have a quick pick up when baby is finished playing. Remove any damaged toys immediately and either repair them or throw them away.
Feng Shui is all about comfort and energy. Enjoy your comfort and your baby.
