Sun Bathing Baby

This month old baby was getting oil massage which was followed by morning sun bathing. This is to make her muscles grow strong (rather than acquiring a tan). The innumerable mosquito bite marks on her face was alarming though, diseases like Malaria is a major cause of infantile death in this region.
