airing the baby?

Watched this woman park her pram in the middle of our courtyard and then pace around for about 20 minutes, until she got too cold to stay. I know it used to be considered very healthy in England to put even tiny babies out in the fresh air when they were sleeping. So, does it happen here too? Or is this woman crazy?


  1. I happen to know it's the done thing in Russia to park sleeping infants on the balcony for half an hour in the dead of winter. How this balances with the rule which states 'thou must not give children cold drinks or they shalt die', I can't imagine.

  2. ... or the sheer horror when there is even the slightest possibility of being in a draught!!
