Following on from Simon’s ‘bellies on show’ post I thought it only right to bring to your attention the phenomenon of Beijing’s bare-bottomed babies. It would appear that about 3/4 of the parents in Beijing have decided that rather than cladding their babies’ backsides in nappies it is better to either leave the lower-half naked or to dress their babies in bottomless trousers. While this might be cooler in the heat of the city, when you’re standing next to a dad holding his baby on the metro you really hope that it doesn’t have an ‘accident’. Admittedly we haven’t witnessed any such incidents so far, maybe they just toilet train their children at a very early age?
Hahha, just wait- you will see babies pooing on plastic bags/sheets in the middle of the supermarket!
