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 and then share what I learn through blog posts and videos.
As an undergraduate I studied anthropology, developing an interest in infant care around the world and throughout history; particularly infant transport strategies. As a graduate student, I studied book history with a focus on Early Modern printed books about pregnancy, birth, and infant care. Notice a theme, eh?
I worked as a nanny throughout university and taught babywearing in my community for fourteen years. I began an undergraduate research project on the prehuman origins of the infant carrier called The Evolution of Babywearing, which is becoming a book (eventually) and I began The Baby Historian as a way to expand my research beyond infant transport.
