The Child Protection
If a child is small, it is not very good to use for his (or her) protection any personal talismans which contain any magical and cabbalistic symbols. In this case, it is the best way to make “natural talismans” which will protect all baby room and a cradle.
For protection of a child from the Evil Eye, put three bay leaves in a cradle under mattress and fasten red ribbons to a cradle — the number of the ribbons should be odd. You also can put an old key under a cradle or fasten a little hand bell to it.
A bundling of swaddling clothes with the color ribbon (blue for a boy or pink for a girl) not only for appearance and increase of reliability of swaddling. First of all, it is a way of protection of a biofield of a baby. Recollect the magical circle that is necessary for protection. And here, a color ribbon also creates an isolation of space and plays the role of a protective barrier.
In order to a child was not scared with nightmares and spooks, scatter salt around a cradle so that it has formed the closed circle. Instead of a salt circle, you can surround a cradle with a white rope or draw a circle by a white chalk on a floor. Pay attention to a position of a cradle in a baby room. Very important that it stood lengthways of battens and not placed directly under a ceiling beam.
Since ancient times children’s rattles have used for deterrence of malicious spirits and phantoms.
