Home footage shows outdoor 'babyhouses'

The BBC News website's recent story about the babies who nap in sub-zero temperatures prompted many people to get in touch with their own experiences.

In the Netherlands, "babyhouses" were used as a way of keeping babies safe while they slept outside in the fresh air.

This home film footage from the 1970s shows one being used.
