How to organize the living space of a child in the home

And we are waiting for the child!
As a rule, after learning about her pregnancy, a womanTries to change his life and space around himself in the direction of maximally healthy. The future mother revises her habitual nutritious diet, choosing simple, environmentally friendly products. Ideally, its nutrition is right: it excludes smoked, salted, fried, fatty, exotic and generally "all suspicious." But there are a lot of vegetables and fruits, protein foods, greens. And now salads are seasoned not with mayonnaise, but with olive oil, and instead of fried cutlets, fish are introduced for a couple.

Then the future mother's view is directed to her way of life. More walks in the fresh air, less negativity and stress, look at the beautiful, think about the good. And inside there is grace!

Somewhere from the second trimester, when the firstWorries and fears behind, the couple are thinking about the arrangement of the nest for the baby. And repair begins! On the one hand, the case is necessary, but on the other - quite nervous and even dangerous. No matter how much the pregnant woman aspires to the thick of events, one should remember: her role in this matter is deliberative: to poke her finger into the favorite interior solutions in the magazine, choose wallpaper and color of colors on the color palette, and participate - no-no. In an ideal world, parents (or at least their mother) migrate for the duration of the repair to a rented dwelling or to relatives. But in reality it does not always work out that way. And it is necessary to neighbor the pregnant woman with building woods, "fragrant" paints and bags of dusty plaster. Can not you leave? Minimize the risks for the baby in the tummy. At the most dangerous time - the painting of walls, batteries, etc., still leave for a couple of days from the volume. Breathing in pairs of colors is harmful! Let everything be painted, cleaned and checked, and only after that you can return home. The same can be said about the hottest time - when the walls are torn off, the walls are shattered. All this building dust is also very harmful. When choosing materials for repair, pay attention to their environmental friendliness and naturalness. Considering how wide the choice is now on the shelves, picking the safest will not be difficult. So, instead of linoleum it is necessary to lay a parquet or at least a laminate, it is better to choose wallpaper not non-woven and not washable, but paper, textile or vegetable. Well, we will repeat, paint, glue the wallpaper, or skip stepladder you now can not. Leave it to the professionals. Well, or as a last resort, a team of friends led by a husband ready for deeds.

Childlike cozy
If you really be honest, the baby is a separate childRoom is not needed. For the first few months he will spend most of his time with his parents. But if the size of the apartment allows, the little one will probably be allocated a room from the very beginning. And make it so comfortable and safe for him. The rule of environmental friendliness of materials in the children's room should be even more severe than in all other rooms. Maximum natural, minimum synthetic!

When talking about a child, most oftenArgue, what it should be in color - bright or pastel tones. They argue to hoarseness. The supporters of the "colorful" solution say that the child distinguishes only four basic colors (red, blue, green, yellow) from birth, which is a childhood in itself - it's time to bright, therefore, it is necessary to surround the baby from birth with cheerful colors. And those who are for quiet colors, assure that nothing around the child should not irritate, and bright shades are powerful irritants. The truth is, as always, somewhere in the middle. Of course, making the main colors of children's red or blue is not worth it, contrasting solutions - is also not an option. But to reduce everything to a boring set of beige, tender-lime or sky-blue - bust. Looking around the room, the child just does not have anything to catch on. Therefore, it is worthwhile to introduce into the interior bright details or accessories (pictures, toys, for example).

What should not be in the nursery?
  • Furniture with monograms, complex details and many patterns - they are inconvenient to wipe and therefore more difficult to keep clean;
  • Useless "beauties". For example, a canopy bed looks very impressive in a photo in a magazine, but in life this complex design only collects dust and requires extra effort. All textiles in the children's room should be practical, easy to remove and wear off;
  • Carpets, large soft toys - another series of useless dust collectors that are difficult to keep clean at the level that the child needs;
  • Open shelves with books in large quantities. They collect dust, which can cause allergic reactions. Think about whether you can clean and vacuum each book weekly. And how many books does a kid need? Not so much. A large children's library can be assembled in the living room.
Children's Feng Shui
Feng Shui specialists believe that it is ideal ifthe child will be located as close to the front door as possible. The distant room should remain with the parents. At the same time it is desirable that the windows of the children's room go to the east - this stimulates growth and development. An important role is assigned to the baby's crib. It should not be located opposite the front door. Do not choose low models or with boxes below - the positive energy of chi should circulate freely both under the crib and above it. Above the place for sleeping, there should not be beams, hanging shelves.

Feng Shui experts recommend refrainingfrom bunk beds, as well as from the modules, where the bed is located at the top, and under it - a place for study. In the first case, being too high, the child enters the zone where there is little qi energy, and in the second - becomes a hostage of combining the two opposite activities - sleep and activity. As a result, when you need to practice, the child will fall asleep over the books because of the pressing influence of the rest zone located above the table, and in the evening, climbing to the "second floor", long can not fall asleep, encouraged by the energy of the active training zone. It is better if the children's room will be zoned - a recreation area, a game zone, a study area.

Crawl the march!
The baby starts to crawl, and a quiet lifeParents come to an end. Because now he has at his disposal a whole apartment and he decides where he should crawl. And if you add to this the fact that everything that comes in the way of a small slider, he tries by heart, just right to panic. The first advice given in this situation to young parents sounds quite comical: stand on all fours and crawl around the apartment. Is it funny? But it's true! You need to lower yourself to the level of the child and look at everything with his eyes. It is advisable at the same time to think like him. Namely - to imagine what he might be interested in. For example, crawl into the bathroom, and there are so many bright jars with twist-off lids. And try it on the taste, he probably wants. And what do we have in the bathroom on the "lower tier"? Toilet detergent, washing powders and air conditioners. Immediately remove! And we take it as a rule not to leave the door to the bathroom and the toilet open. Going down on all fours, you will find out what is in the child's field of view first and evaluate how safe it is. From the lower shelves should be removed higher than the book, then you do not have to pull the child off constantly ("Do not!", "Do not touch!") Or get upset because of another torn book. We lift up and all easily beating objects - vases, figurines, utensils. It is also necessary to get rid of floor decor items, those that can be pushed, shattered, knocked over. Evaluate what lies in the lower closed shelves and drawers. The kid will quickly learn how to open and push them, do not even doubt. In addition, he will give a lot of pleasure to pull out their contents. And again - what can be torn, will be torn, what can be shoved into your mouth, will be licked and tested on the tooth. Clean up first-aid kits with medicines, cosmetics, documents, family photo albums. If this is not possible, then install on the doors of furniture special locks (sold in children's supermarkets).

We go to the kitchen and again inspect the lowershelves. Remove the battered dishes. You can specifically purchase bright containers for products of different colors and sizes and put them in the lower boxes, and then the research activity of the child will also become an excellent developing activity, thanks to which the kid (not without your help, of course) will master colors, concepts "more-less" and t d.
