    Default Babies

    Have any of you seen the documentary 'Babies'? I watched it on Netflix the other night and it was SO neat. I'm not sure if US Netflix has it or not. It follows 4 babies from 4 different countries during the first year of life. The babies are from: Mongolia, Namibia, San Francisco and Tokyo. There is no narration in the show...just the footage back and forth between the babies doing similar things. It was so neat.

    The part I laughed at the most was the Mongolian baby being tied to the bedpost like a dog while he crawled around the room. I'm not sure where his parents were...but wow. Could you imagine doing that here? LOL. Oh also, when he was climbing up on a rusty old barrel naked and scraping his junk up on the barrel. OUCH! Those must be some tough boy-bits!!!!

    I love that movie!! I was kind of concerned for that Mongolian baby, it seemed no one was ever watching him and he had no pants or diaper on ever lol. I loved how the Namibian women would just breastfeed whoever was around.

    I want to see this!!! DH and I started to watch it once, but we were trying to stream it or something, and it wasn't working, so we only caught the first 10 minutes or so.

    This movie was definitely cool. It was neat being able to see how babies from different cultures are raised!

    Yup! I saw it a while ago and enjoyed it, although it wasn't quite what I had expected.
