Buggy direction 'crucial'21st November 2008
Researchers are suggesting that children who are put in buggies which leave them facing away from their parent could have their development undermined.
The study of 2,722 parent-infant pairings, carried out by Dundee University, found that youngsters in prams which face the pusher are more likely to talk, laugh and interact. Parents using away-facing buggies talked less to the child and the youngsters appeared to be more stressed. The research was carried out in collaboration with the charity the National Literacy Trust.
