|The direction that a baby faces in his or her buggy can affect their development, according to new research.
A study of 2,722 parent-child pairs found that babies in buggies which faced their pusher were more likely to talk, laugh and interact, thus encouraging their communication skills from an early age.
The research, led by Dr Suzanne Zeedyk from Dundee University, in collaboration with the charity the National Literacy Trust (NLT), suggests that old-fashioned prams which allow babies to lie down and face the person pushing them gave infants the best start in life.
