A good flow of feng shui energy in the baby's room will inevitably lead to a happier, healthier child, while a baby's room with a poor feng shui energy flow will contribute to a baby who can't sleep well and tends to get sick often.
When it comes to a good feng shui nursery, be guided by your senses. Think of the nursery as a special retreat for relaxation and bonding with your little one, and let it delight all five senses. Good feng shui always feels good, so start making your choices by trusting your body's responses to the environment you are creating for your baby.
- Create a harmony of soft feng shui colors in the nursery. Look beyond the traditional pink or blue and choose the colors you really like, colors that comfort and soothe you.
- Have different sources of light in the nursery to be used at different times of day and night; this will contribute to a balanced feng shui energy.
- Keep your baby's bed away from the door and limit the electrical appliances close to the crib. The general feng shui guidelines for an adult bed will apply for your baby's bed, too - you do not want the crib too close to the door or in line with it; in the middle of the room with no support, or under the window.
- Use natural materials whenever possible for baby's bedding, nursery curtains, flooring, rugs, furniture and toys. Choose wood over plastic.
- Treat your baby's sense of smell with respect; open windows daily for good ventilation and enjoy the scent of gentle essential oils, such as chamomile, rose, vanilla and lavender.
