Maca Country Baby on Back

“The women in the Peruvian Highlands carry their babies on their backs using the simplest, most clever technique. They showed me! All they do is fold a square shaped cloth, usually woven in bright colors like this one, over into a triangle. Then they bend over, hoist the baby onto their back, position the cloth just right, and tie it tight. Amazingly, this works like a dream -- and the babies love it!” - Zoe Helene
