Handling a baby is easier said than done. Their tender age needs gentle care, and parents throughout the ages, all over the world, have employed various methods to take care of their tiny one. You may have come across pictures of women in rural areas carrying their kids by tying them to their fronts or their backs. So certainly, babywearing is not a product of our modern era.
