The study makes a connection between babies who sit facing away from their parents and long-term developmental problems. The study of 2,722 parents and children found that the babies who sit facing out were less likely to talk, laugh and interact with their parents. You know, because they can't see their parents.
"Our experimental study showed that, simply by turning the buggy around, parents' rate of talking to their baby doubled," said developmental psychologist Suzanne Zeedyk, who led the research.
Zeedyk goes on to lay a big guilt trip on the 62% of parents who stroll their children in forward-facing prams. "Our data suggests that for many babies today, life in a buggy is emotionally impoverished and possibly stressful," she said.
