Banele | Support, Empathy/ Lack thereof, Siblings, Sibling Rivalry, Parental protection, Fathers
Banele is lying on the couch, recently fed and bathed, at times looking around the room. His siblings watch. Mom tries gently to get Zanele (the youngest sibling) to talk to/ interact with Banele and she explains Zanele's struggle with envy of the new arrival. The camera struggles to settle while mom tries to encourage Zanele to interact with the new baby.
Mom picks up Banele and talks to him. He roots towards her nipple although he is only bottle fed. Mom points out to the siblings that he is looking for milk.
Thando, Banele's middle sister, helps mom by fetching the bottle. Dad tries to involve Zanele by getting her to help with the bottle. After feeding, Banele settles on mom's chest. The other siblings all sit on the couch quietly.
