      infant /Child rearing practicesAnn --

      I would suggest the book "A World of Babies: Imagined Childcare Guides for
      Seven Societies" by Judy DeLoache and Alma Gottlieb (2000, Cambridge Univ.
      Press). And I think that's a great idea for a shower!

      I got the following request from a College co-worker who is not an
      anthropologist :




      "Will you help me with a personal matter? I am planning a baby shower for
      a friend. As a treat for the guests, I'd like to share some baby
      customs/traditions from around the world. These could include new baby
      traditions, welcoming customs, parenting practices, etc. Can you suggest a
      source for this information? Any help you could offer would be greatly
      appreciated."



      I'm a physical anthropologist, and at something of a loss.
      I know that this is the realm of psychological anthropology, and that it
      pretty well begn with Benedict and Mead. But there are also lots of more
      recent sources, too. Can anyone help me ( and her) out? Thanks!
