A message from the family behind

We take great care when choosing books to recommend. Our standards are high which we hope is evident in our selection. Because of our mindful editing process, competing with mega bookstore corporations is not something we can do.

As an independent, family-owned business we genuinely appreciate the support from thoughtful customers like you. Our value, selection, service and survival depends on your careful consideration when choosing where to shop online. Thank you!

Beloved Burden: Baby-wearing around the world!

Beloved Burden describes and illustrates baby carriers from many different global cultures.  Some baby carriers are beautiful for their simplicity, while others are richly decorated and resemble true artworks.

Even today the use of baby carriers in many cultures is widespread, whether it is to free up your hands, to transport your baby, to protect your baby, or to reinforce the bonding process.

More and more parents in the West are using long woven or elasticised cloths that safely hold a sitting or reclining baby against the carrier's back or chest.  The quantity of ergonomic baby carriers continues to increase each day.  And for those who struggle to tie a knot in a piece of fabric, there are handy baby carriers that, worn like a rucksack on the back, evenly distribute the weight of the child over the carrier's body.

While researching the ways in which children in diverse cultures are carried, the authors were surprised by the many different approaches and ideas they encountered about pregnancy and birth, and caring for and raising children.  Physicians maintain that close physical proximity to a parent has a positive effect on a baby's development: babies who are carried appear to be more contented than children who spend a lot of time in strollers.
