A new study raises concerns about forward-facing strollers.Researchers say they may cause babies emotional distress because they aren't getting face-to-face contact with their parents.

Researchers looked at about 3,000 pairs of parents and infants.

Parents with rear-facing strollers were more than twice as likely to talk to their babies. Those babies had lower heart rates and were twice as likely to fall asleep as babies in forward-facing strollers.
