We adore our babies, and historically, our motherly predecessors demonstrated this profound love through limitless and deeply affectionate actions.

Enveloping our precious babies with beautifully decorated cradle boards was commonplace, as was dressing them in intricately embellished clothing and baby moccasins. Conferring them with sweet and honorable names was a communal honor and privilege.
