This afternoon we dropped in to see Safinieli, one of Cradle’s ‘Crawlers’ caregivers who recently delivered a healthy baby boy. Named Nimrod, he weighed 3.2kgs and was delivered naturally late afternoon on January, 29th. He is absolutely perfect and we all enjoyed his cuddles. Safinieli also has an older, 7 year old son called Ali Nyambeta.
