Hi there, my name is Aradia Wyndham and I’m The Baby Historian. I read through old books and magazines, dig through archives, and art history databases and then share what I learn through blog posts and videos.
As an undergraduate I studied anthropology with a particular interest in infant care around the world and throughout history; focusing on infant transport strategies. As a graduate student, I studied book history with a focus on Early Modern printed medical and domestic manuals that concerned pregnancy, birth, and infant care. Notice a theme, eh?
I worked as a nanny throughout university and continue to teach babywearing in my community. After becoming medically disabled, I began a blog on research I began as an undergraduate on the prehuman origins of the infant carrier called The Evolution of Babywearing, which is becoming a book (eventually). Now I have started The Baby Historian as a way to expand my research beyond babywearing.
