Any old “baby” practice that you still follow i.e. putting thread on baby’s forehead when they have hiccups or letting your baby wear the black and red beaded bracelet to oppose bad eyes? I maybe one of the westernized or modern mommies of the year 2000 but my beliefs are mostly from the traditionally practiced that our grandparents and parents had introduced to us.
My eldest was born in Bahrain where beliefs are far different from where I was born, not to forget that my Indian national husband who also has a different belief or tradition to follow. But that didn’t stop me from letting both my daughters worn the known black and red beaded bracelet. Indians have also a similar one, but theirs is a combination of black and white in a form of bangles. Whatever shapes and colors they may appear, whether they would look like the wheel bearing rzr parts, the purpose is the same – to oppose bad eyes.
