Ethopian babies rode in a basket
fastened to their mother’s back by
a band which passed over her fore

learned to hold on tight until he
was able to walk.
Peru babies were strapped in
cradles like those of Indian papoos

mother’s high, wide boots; Italian
women carried the children in wick

mountain mothers of Switzerland
placed tHeir babies in cribs which
were carried on top of the head
much after the fashion of women in
