Why you can actually carry your baby at work

A few reasons why I managed to carry my baby without doubting or following the norm.

  • I grew up in Zimbabwe in the village where babywearing is still the main means of transporting a family from A to B, the main means worthwhile using when parents are at work in the fields, fetching firewood, or water. Of course dancing and all form of practical things.
  • I also grew up in the city of Harare where I then discovered the difference between a village and a town. As time moves on, I could tell the difference between the town people and the village people. the village people never needed to talk to feel what another person is going through. Which explains that they are close to nature.
  • My mother carried and breastfed me and my siblings, and that reveals how we get along and feel  for one another in time of happiness or trouble, especially those intense moments.
  • I didn’t want to keep checking the temperature of my baby.

Teaching an African drumming class whilst wearing my baby, this way I do not need to spend money to pay a babysitter. At the same time I am involving my children and teaching them rhythm.
