Sound Off! Rear-Facing vs Forward-Facing: What Type of Stroller Do You Use and Why?
Ramey; Albert Michael/Startraks
Strollers are one of the most essential items for parents on the go. Whether you’re pushing your child around the city or through the suburbs, it’s an easy mode of transportation. But how do you know which is right for you?
A recent story in the New York Times pointed to a study suggesting rear-facing strollers allowed for more interaction and chatter with babies, as opposed to more modern, forward-facing strollers. While parents don’t need to be worried about which way their strollers face, the study does challenge parents to be curious about the elements of the environment that attract their children’s interest.
So here’s your chance to Sound Off! Tell us what type of stroller you use and why in the comments, then come back and take our poll.
