But I wanted to give her some idea of what to expect in my beloved Vietnam, which can be a crazy and overwhelming place to visit. In no particular order. But in Vietnam, expect just about everyone to react to the baby. It can be overwhelming. If you are in a hurry, just smile and keep walking.
If the baby is afraid, just smile and keep walking. If you have time and the baby thinks this is how life should be, just enjoy it. Let the waitress parade the baby around the restaurant, let the xe om motorbike taxi driver play with the baby on the motorbike, let the hotel security guard bounce the baby on his knee.

People may give the baby food. Young children, especially light-haired children, will get similar treatment. The traffic is crazy — but you will survive Motorbike traffic in Vietnam operates on the same principle as a school of fish. The traffic just flows around obstacles.
If you are still, motorbikes can go around. The people on the motorbikes have a vested interest in NOT hitting you, so try to make it easy for them to avoid you by being predictable. Walk slowly, watching the oncoming traffic, and wave one arm above your head to make sure people have noticed you.
My school of fish theory only applies to motorbikes.
