Breastfeeding is not “sexy”

This is a visually beautiful movie that quietly illustrates some of the varying ways in which babies from different cultures are raised. I am disappointed that Common Sense gave it a star for “Sexy Stuff.” Breastfeeding and breasts shown in the context of nursing have nothing to do with sex. I respect that different families have different values when it comes to viewing the human body, and explaining how women’s breasts and toddlers’ nudity is shown in the movie could be helpful to others. But it is unfortunate and misleading that some reviewing parents also marked the movie as having sexy stuff. There is nothing sexual in “Babies.”

Great for Toddlers

Since there are no words, and no plot to follow, this is great a "baby's first movie". It's like cat videos for cats, toddlers love watching Babies!
