EVOLUTION OF THE CRADLE. I Baby nowadays has things so much his own way that he would doubtless feel very indignant if he were put to sleep like the baby of the Middle Ages. In the ninth and tenth centuries cradles were made of a section of the trunk of a tree scooped out. Small holes were bored at the sides, and through these straps were passed to fasten the baby in. Later on rockers were used. Sometimes the cradle was hung by cords or slung between two wooden supports. In the sixteenth century cradles were often very elaborate and beautiful. Sometimes they were made of silver, and again they were of wood.. richly carved, and ornamented with gilt mosaic work.
