I am working in the Peruvian Amazon until the end of March. In every home in the villages where I am working you can find a hammock or two tied to the ceiling. You learn to love them fast! Mothers use these to rock their children to sleep. If a baby begins to cry they are picked up and placed in the hammock where they are gently rocked until they calm down or fall asleep. A man told me a story about teaching his childhood pet, a woolly monkey, to rock his 2 year old little sister in the hammock with his tail. (For those of you concerned about the pet trade-- the monkey's mother was eaten by a harpy eagle and he rescued the baby from the jungle)
This boy is 1 1/2 years old. He just woke up from a relaxing nap in the hammock.
When they are smaller they place two sticks at the ends of the hammock so that their faces are not covered by the fabric.
The jungle is full of really cute babies.
