* With all respect to Gillian Dutton ("Pushchairs are bad for babies" TES, November 11), the question of whether to have a forward or rearward-facing pushchairs is an old one. I recall a letter in a newspaper, from a mother who had gone to some trouble to get a rearward-facing chair for her infant son - only to find him twisting round so he could "kneel up" and look over the front. The child wanted to look where he was going. He could see Mummy any time.
