Which way should your baby face?


Babies' development may be undermined by the type of pushchair they are in, according to a study by the National Literacy Trust.

The research suggests babies in buggies which face away from their parents are less likely to interact with them, which may affect brain development.

The study looked at 2,722 parent-infant pairs across the country.

The BBC's Nicola Pearson spoke to people about their pushchair preferences.
