"""Rock-a-bye babyOn the tree to , When the wind blows , The cradle will rock . When the bough breaks the cradle will fall , and down will come Baby, Cradle and all """
I used to hear this hypnotic lull to get a baby into a sleep when I was about 8 years old in cartoon , without understanding it fully, or knowing that the role of lulls in the ears of a new born baby extends the mere hypnotic influence to get them into a deep relaxing sleep while the mother enjoys her free time leaving all the burdens of motherhood behind her shoulders .
I started noticing the whole culture that claims the little infants needs to talk to or sing to . Seeing old ladies in my city rocking babies with songs claiming that a mother should tell her baby " what should he does or doesn't "
In a sitrical way . " Banah " a small fairy had the role of instructing little babies in my culture . " Banah " in the song is accountable for telling them , how to be courageous . How do they talk in a subtle language and how to stand for themselves in the face of difficulties . The lull ceremony start by holding the baby up high , singing him the songs . While the smell of beautiful incense is burning down . I always liked it when babies smile when you talk to them .
However , babies smiles and frowns has their explanation . The foxes are the reason . As my mother used to tell me : babies frown because they see a fox in their dreams this fox is trying to abduct his mother , if the fox leave his mom the baby smile . It seems to be a very funny explainanaton of " why babies smile "
By the way , their is another convincing point of view of babies cries at night . I mean the cry which isn't related to their digestive issues . That if you make a baby laugh and play alot at day time . He won't have a good night sleep . Because , they baby will start thinking of things in his little mind . I used to ask my mom with a strange look on my face . How is that !!!! And she answered babies are human . What is strange . If we had a bad or a wonderful day , don't we think of things at night .
Arab women used to have their own hand made cradles . Unlike most of the wooden cradles . Their were made of goat skin . And use to be carried with mom's whenever they go . A cradle that keep the baby close to his mother and might be hanged in any place later on .
When ababy is born he comes with his full catalogue of happy moments . People arrive with presents and food and in the 7th day his father will slaughter a sheep and give the meat in blastic bags to all of his neighbors and close relatives and give him his / her name .
I think most of us meant a lot as babies . However , people lose interest in you as you are growing up . Painfully , no one looks at your face when you are an elder person . But still inside of us all is a little baby opening his ears to lulls and songs.
