Ok, so, normally when I put micah down to sleep he cries a little. Usually 10 minutes max, sometimes less than a minute. One night our night guard heard him crying and was concerned because he thought that he was sick. And during the day, the Project workers would hear him. They told me I needed an asakansaka—the traditional Tuareg bed for infants. You hang it from your tafalat (hangar) and then, whoever is sitting nearby can swing the baby to sleep. Grandpa Jeff gave us one the other day. I think Micah enjoyed it thoroughly. I put him in it and even though he was tired he lifted his head up and was looking at everything as he was swinging.
