South Africans are flooding social media with photos of themselves in traditional clothing. It has been amazing seeing all the colours and amazing clothes, foods and landscapes that make up the people and places of South Africa.
Briefly.co.za has taken a look at three adorable photos of babies who have been dressed in traditional clothing, celebrating heritage month and making our hearts melt at the same time.
Parents have posted photos of their babies in the Facebook group #ImStaying, celebrating the future and the past of this great country.

Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Constance Gololo Montja took to Facebook and shared her story in the group #ImStaying. She revealed that when she was studying to become an attorney, Mr SP Van Zyl let her stay at his flat for only R1500 a month.
She said normally, flats in that area are rented out for R3500 - R4000. She only met him once, when she signed the lease agreement.
When he passed away his children visited her and said that their dad made them promise not to kick her out or raise her rent.
In other news, in August, Briefly.co.za covered a story about Tasreeq Doovey who was moved to tears after his classmates surprised him with a cell phone and matric jacket, neither of which he could afford.
He had been robbed earlier and lost his cell phone in the process. The young man is a student at Windsor High School in Lansdowne. On top of his studies, he also supports his family.
The community got together and started a crowdfunding campaign for Tasreeq. Roxanne Carter, the woman who shared the video in the Facebook group #ImStaying, had set up a crowdfunding account with a target of R55 000.
