I’ve posted in the past about my love of kangas & how Kenyans use them to tie babies on their backs.
Because some of you asked to see what it looked like to balance the baby on the back, I took a few pictures about a week before we were due to come back home to the states.
Lillian, one of the house-mothers in the abandoned infant care center was kind enough to demonstrate with Ameena.
I’ve tried this a few times now, always with someone there to catch Ameena as I’m not the most comfortable in my ability to balance her on my back. Ameena has lasted on my back for about 5 minutes, breaking out into a squawk before long. I got some interesting stares walking down my street in Portland, Oregon with her on my back. You’d think this hippy town would be used to this kind of thing by now!
