Family ties

Children are carried in a sling made of cloth in the North-Eastern parts of India. Toddlers and babies are slung across the back by a cloth that goes around them and is knotted over the parents shoulder. I have seen both lower limbs of the infant dangling from the sling!! Advantages? Well, any cloth which is easily available at home is used, the baby is held close to the parents body and the parents have a ‘hands free’ system!!
