Why Use A Parent-Facing Pushchair?
Your baby’s loving gaze is absolutely captivating – and when they are very small there’s nothing they will like better than looking deeply into your eyes. You’ll want to keep this lovely eye contact with each other when you’re out and about, which is why a parent-facing pushchair is such a great choice for young babies.
Most from-birth pushchairs have both rear-facing and forward-facing positions.
But from birth until about 9 months old, being able to make eye-contact with you is key to baby’s wellbeing. In a parent-facing pushchair, your little one will be able to see you and hear your voice, which they'll find comforting.
You’ll be more relaxed too, as you’ll be able to reassure yourself that they are not too hot or too cold, and that they are protected from anything too over-stimulating in the outside world. Your little one will feel safe and secure, helping them to discover the world at their own pace.
Moving to a forward-facing pushchair
As your baby gets older they will become more curious about the world around them and will want to watch it go by. But you might want to make the move to a front-facing pushchair gradually. You could try changing the position of the pushchair seat for an hour or so at a time – that’s easy with most reversible pushchairs.
