Did you know that carrying a child on your back is good for the child? The position of the hips allow for an optimal development of the hip joint. It is exactly the position used for treating developmental hip dysplasia, because it allows maximum contact between the femoral head and the acetabulum (hip socket), which in turns makes the joint spherical. The child is also being excercised by the mother’s movement and this strengthens the muscles and skeletal structure. Africans were doing it before it was being treated for developmental hip dysplasia though!

It’s like if you ever wished for a Black Girl version of Powerpuff Girls but much much betta

Some women speak a third,
the language of queens.
