In Finland, the babies are left outside in their strollers on sidewalks. In
winter they are bundled up with snowsuits and take long afternoon naps outside.
Päivi's daughters were no exception. According to her, this tradition started in
order to avoid the babies getting diseases from sick people. It was considered
that the air was cleaner outside than the inside. Soon after they found out that
the babies slept very well in the cold.
