Babies' strollers could affect development

It may not be something parents think about, but a new study shows maybe you should. It found children pushed in buggies that face away from their parents may suffer long term emotional and language problems.

This research is believed to be the first of its kind. It found that children who were not facing the person that pushed them were less likely to talk, laugh and interact with their parents, compared with those babies that did.

The research published by the National Literacy Trust says the data suggests that for many babies, life in a carriage can be emotionally impoverished and possibly stressful and that stressed babies grow into anxious adults.
