Buggy direction 'affects child'
Children who are put in buggies which leave them facing away from their parent could have their development undermined, a study has suggested.
Researchers found that youngsters in prams which face the pusher are more likely to talk, laugh and interact.
More than 2,700 parent-infant pairs were observed across the UK and a smaller study was done in Dundee.
Parents in away-facing buggies talked less to the child and the youngster appeared to be more stressed.
