Aquarium and baby
Not everyone knows, but even the elementary visual contemplation of living beings relaxes, calms, gives joy and aesthetic emotions. For babies, watching aquarium fish is a great way to calm the nervous system and arouse attention to a moving subject, because it is much more fun than any, even the most entertaining toy. Specialists in children's health often resort to the help of aquarium fish (one of the types of zootherapy) to provide psychotherapeutic assistance to young children. Observation of the inhabitants of the aquarium has a beneficial effect on the nervous system of not only children but also adults. And the British researcher Dr. Horace Dobbs recommends that all newly mummies who are in a state of postpartum depression not only, if possible, contemplate the aquarium inhabitants, but also listen to the recordings of dolphin voices. But the dolphin “healing” has been known for a long time, it’s only a pity that in a home aquarium such a “fish” is a bit crowded.
The aquarium in the children's room will not hurt - provided that you do not forget to look after it, it will serve as a good air humidifier. And when your baby grows up a little, you will not only pay his attention to the underwater inhabitants, but will also instill in him a love for living creatures, and you will also teach him how to care for fish, raising a sense of responsibility in the child for our smaller brothers.
And do not be afraid of some mythical diseases and allergies. Fish are not able to infect humans. But to give positive attention to the child they are quite capable. Vapors from the aquarium, as already mentioned, will moisten the room, which means that possible colds in the family will be easier. Nothing contributes to the long course of a common cold like dry air in an apartment.
And if you equip the aquarium with light, then it will also serve as a nightlight in the room of your newborn baby, and swimming small fish will contribute to the successful falling asleep of the baby.
The relaxing and calming effect of the aquarium will help you even when the child is a little older, and the energy in it will beat over the edge. Contemplation of the underwater world will help the child to be more assiduous and attentive.
Therefore, do not be afraid to equip an aquarium in an apartment where there is a baby, if you keep it clean, then it will bring nothing but benefit.
