My siblings and I were put outside as babies in the pram to sleep, and we put our own children outside likewise, well wrapped up. They would wake up with rosy cheeks from the fresh air and often lie for ages looking up at tree branches and leaves moving in the breeze. Don’t people do this any more?
We had a lady with a 6 month old staying along the road for the past three months. The child was taken from the house to the car, to the supermarket each day, and then straight back again. I never even saw them out for a walk, which was a shame as they had a small dog which would have benefitted from a little exercise, and the lawns would have been a little cleaner. It is such a waste – this is such a lovely part of the world to be out and about in.
