The design of your home has an amazing affect on the health and wellbeing of your baby. If it is in harmony with nature, it’s going to have a positive effect on young kids. Otherwise, problems will become apparent in subtle and ways. According to the science of Vastu Shastra, all five elements (earth, fire, water, air and space) have an influence on your child’s room.

It is an ancient architectural science that balances the five elements within one’s environment and supports the growth of strong, happy babies. Because of their size and developing immune system, infants are far more susceptible to the consequences of poor air quality and indoor pollutants than adults. Over time, I’ve seen how flooring, decorating materials, mattresses, toys, molds, toxic gases, pesticides and electronic equipment can all degrade the air an infant breathes, even if you, as an adult aren’t affected.

Epidemiological studies indicate a link between pollutants and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). In 1966, a New Zealand chemist, T.J. Sprott, began a study of over 100,000 infants. None of the children were exposed to toxic off-gasing from mattresses. None of the infants died of SIDS. In 1988 a British chemist, Barry Richardson, conducted a study on mattresses of children who died of SIDS. Of the 200 mattresses tested, he found all emitted chemical nerve gas agents such as phosphine, arsine or stibine when caused by blood body temperature.

This is a shocking example of what dangers can be lurking in your home, unbeknownst to you. In this circumstance, what you can not see can hurt you and your baby. Knowledge is power. Knowing what you can do to protect your kids is the most effective preventative measure. I can not emphasize enough the importance of reading all labels carefully to determine the safety of any materials that you use around your baby.

Another element that I’ve seen affect infants and young children is called Geopathic Stress. This occurs when radiation follows lines of underground utilities and streams. These utility lines or pipes often intersect beneath bedrooms, influencing your infant’s ability to sleep. Electrical wiring in the home can also disrupt the balance of the five elements if improperly placed. Such factors have been scientifically proven to influence the health and disposition of your child. Indoor environmental testing for Geopathic Stress can encourage your peace of mind and protect you and your baby.


There are numerous things you can do yourself to make changes that balance your environment for positive results. According to Vastu Shastra, the northwest is associated with the air element. To balance this element in your child’s room, hang a mobile in the northwest corner of the crib. This can help stimulate their capacity to learn. Also, fresh air is very important for infants and older children. Having the window open, even a quarter of an inch, will help eliminate toxins that can build up and circulate in the air.

Place the crib in the southwest area of space with the infant’s head to the east. The southwest is connected to the grounding energy of the earth element and supports the development of motor skills. Babies also sleep better and have fewer problems with teething in this configuration. Use a nightlight in the southeast area of your child’s room. The southeast is associated with the fire element and promotes the development of visual skills.


Balancing the fire element also reduces agitation and helps give babies a feeling of security. These are simply a couple measures you can take to create proactive support for your child. All five elements will need to be considered and balanced properly to experience the full benefits of Vastu Shastra. It’s best to have your home analyzed by a qualified Vastu professional. I can not say enough about the beauty and power that Vastu Shastra provides. It’s such an impressive tool which can be felt immediately once the environment has been balanced. It affects the most sensitive members of their family first, so your baby will benefit from the changes made immediately.
