Mamas are the same the world around

I love this video I found on YouTube. This mama in Africa is tying her baby on to her back, apparently to enable her to do her chores around the house. (it looks like she’s getting ready to take care of some laundry, but I could be wrong.)

Notice her bouncing the whole time, then reaching around to pat her baby’s bottom after she finishes tying up the wrap and blanket. How many of us mothers here in America have gone through the same rituals while tying on our babies?

  1. Thanks for this link! That is a carry I use – the wrap is called a Chitenge in many places, and so the way of carrying is known as the same. It is really easy – I wear my toddler like that for quick shop trips. You can spin them from back to front, to side, breastfeeding in there also. Great stuff.

    I’m going to add it to my Babywearing and EC page at Tribal Baby!
