Baby Carriers Around the World and in the Past

I’m collecting links to interesting articles and films about baby carriers and slings around the world, both modern and in the past.

Things to See and Feel:

  • At the Sling Library we have a range of traditional carriers from around the world, including an Ethiopian Leather carrier, a South American Rebozo, a model of a Native American Papoose, and hemmed fabric in a size commonly used all over the world.
  • You can also often spot examples of babywearing in objects in museums – there’s a fab bronze statue of women working with babies tied to their backs in the African Exhibit at the Horniman Museum in Forest Hill!
