Buggy direction ‘affects child’

“Parents in away-facing buggies talked less to the child and the youngster appeared to be more stressed.”

What the article doesn’t mention is that for the first three (?) months babies can’t really see more than a metre or so away and can’t make much sense of what they do see so direction is not much of an issue at that point. I think we switched at six months or so.
