'Babies feel stressed when sitting in outward-facing strollers' Inward-facing prams can cost up to 10 times more than ou

Taking babies in prams and strollers that face outward, away from their parents, can be stressful for babies, a study found. "Imagine if you were strapped to someone's chest with your legs and arms flailing, heading with no control, in a busy shopping centre. It would be terrifying. It is the same for our children," Catherin Fowler from the University of Technology Sydney, told the Daily Mail. Inward-facing prams can cost up to 10 times more than outward-facing ones. However, Barker Robin, Australia's best-known midwife and author of "Baby Love," denounced professor Fowler's opinion. Robin said that babies seem to enjoy looking forward and watching the way people and objects move. "What babies need is parents who love them and feed them and if that's in place then I'm afraid which way the pram faces is irrelevant," Barker was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.
