Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a Nigerian lady in the UK, Funmilayo Ademoye, revealed how the way she carried her baby amazed five white people.
In a post on Facebook, she said when she backed her baby, five foreigners including daddies said they would be bringing their fabrics the next day so that she can teach them.
They called it “wearing babies”. Funmilayo revealed that carrying babies on one’s back is far better than using a baby carrier, saying that the latter has been a burden to her neck.
