Today I saw lots of chubby Inuit babies in my clinic. They look so cute and cuddy! Just like baby polar bears (which I have not seen any of yet). Although my neighbours do have an entire adult polar bear skin complete with the head on their living room wall, yikes!
All of the mothers here carry their babies on their backs inside their parkas. There is a special parka called an amauti just for carrying your baby in!
|Not my photo, but you get the idea of the amauti.|
