With Banele wrapped in a blanket on mom's lap, mom describes (to camera) a dramatic event that morning of finding Banele not breathing properly. She comments on googling for information and how scary it was.

Dad describes, (to camera) how he and mom decided on naming Banele as part of a lineage of names connecting him to his ancestors.

Mom pours boiling water from one cup to another to cool it in order to prepare formula for Banele's feed.

Both parents and youngest sibling, Zanele, look exhausted. Thando watches Banele as he sleeps.
