Babywearing in Morocco

During our visit to Whole Foods Market yesterday, The Pure Baby (PB) and I met a lovely cashier.  She noticed that PB was on my back in our Kanga XT, and this sweet woman could not say enough great things about how wonderful that was :)  Our new acquaintance shared that she was from Morocco - and that when her children were young in Morocco, she wore them on her back all.of.the.time!  To her, the greatest gifts of babywearing were: (1) having a safe place for her young children - where she was always with them; (2) being able to get everything done at home - cooking, cleaning, playing with other children, etc.; and (3) the biggest one of all - bonding and building a close mother/child relationship.
