CHILDREN

Children are a blessing from Allah, so most of Jeynov's families have many. As in many others Uzbekistan regions, mothers in Jeynov use traditional cradles (beshik) to lull their children. The cradle is equipped with special curtains and a hole for a chamber pot in the bottom. The child should be swaddled tightly. With the help of a special drain (shmak), adjusted to the child's genitals, all liquid is directed to the chamber pot, so that the bed is always dry.
