Banele | Bathing, Siblings, Silence, Support, Fathers

It's the weekend and everyone is home. Mom sits feeding Banele in silence on the couch. There is some eye contact between them but little expression. After feeding, mom easily burps Banele. Oldest sister, Sihle, helps arrange things for the bath. Mom bottle feeds while staring off into the distance - no real eye contact and little expression. Banele clings to the bottle. Mainly silence between mom and baby.

Bathtime. Kids are on the couch or helping. Dad brings the bath into room. Mom tests water and hands Banele to nanny (referred to as auntie). Nanny assists with bath, moving Banele with little support into and in the bath. Banele seems to be soothed by water. Dressing Banele is also fairly unsupported. Banele cries. Other siblings watch on with different levels of interest/attention. Banele still has his umbilical chord and mom shows nanny how to protect it while fastening a nappy.
