I went to see the Babies movie this weekend. Very cool. It shows the first year of life for 4 babies from the US, Namibia, Japan, and Mongolia. It was interesting to see the differences of culture, but more so the similarities of the babies. I liked seeing some breastfeeding. One thing we didn't see was nighttime with the babies. I would have liked to see the differences in how sleeping arrangements and waking at night were dealt with in the different families. There was no dialog in the film, just music and I thought that was just right. It really didn't need it. Just watching the babies was perfect.
