About Me

Hello, my name is Aradia Wyndham and I created The Baby Historian blog and YouTube channel. I have always loved babies and children; I worked in childcare for over fifteen years and ran a local babywearing group during that time. As an undergraduate I studied anthropology, with a focus on anthropology of childhood and infant transport strategies from prehistory to the present day. As a graduate student, I studied book history with a focus on Early Modern English domestic manuals that taught readers about pregnancy, childbirth, and infant care.

Please feel free to contact me with baby history related questions or topic suggestions, or if you have stories you would like to share with TBH readers/viewers, just make clear if you want stories to be shared and what, if any, name to use.
