“The sight of a young woman pushing a double stroller with a baby strapped to her chest diverted his thoughts again. She looked so fresh—carefree.”

“Molly made a new nest of fresh, dried moss in the baby frame. Then she wrapped the strong, kicking baby in a blanket and lashed him fast with two broad beaded belts, one red, the other blue. The baby-frame was the finest in the village. Its foot-board was carved as well as the hoop or bow which was placed arching over the child’s head to protect it in case of a fall. Molly folded and placed at one side the cloth which was sometimes drawn over the bow for shade.”

“Some of the younger women pulled the loaded sleds, others carried the younger children in baby frames or pack-baskets…With Blue Jay in a pack-basket on her back, Molly trudged slowly along behind the others.”

“An Indian squaw appeared in the doorway of one of the hogans, her baby strapped to her back, and watched her with great round wondering eyes. Hazel smiled at the little papoose, and it soon dimpled into an answering smile.”

“The Indian children’s mothers were riding ponies, too… Some had narrow bundles tied on their backs, and tiny babies’ heads stuck out of the top of the bundles. And some babies and some small children rode in baskets hanging at the ponies’ sides, beside their mothers. More and more and more ponies passed, and more children, and more babies on their mothers’ backs, and more babies in baskets on the ponies’ sides. Then came a mother riding, with a baby in a basket on each side of her pony.”
Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder, page 307-308
