I think M was a little bit older - I turned it when she was craning her neck round the side of the pram to look where we were going! I think she was about 1.
I still push J facing me most of the time at 19months - I like interacting with him, and he can still see all around pretty well.
W is. 25 months and walks most of the time but when ever she is in the pushchair I still have her parent facing. It's much nicer to be able to chat to her, I feel like she's being ignored if she's forward facing and am only short so have to then lean over to see her to check she's ok / not lost a glove etc . Like SG said, they can still see lots of stuff facing you .
R is still facing me at 23 months, I like being able to chat to him. My older boys were about 15/16 months I think.
E's pushchair is only forward facing (altough I can angle the hood so she can still see me) - so she has been forward facing since I moved her from the pram to the pushchair. She is still rear facing if I clip the car seat on to the frame though - she's never really been bothered either way!!
Only recently when he went into the pushchair, about 15 months I think. Still miss it cos it feels lonely just pushing without being able to see him!
Oh good, I won't feel pressure to rush then! I think pre baby I thought they would move around this age (no idea where I got that from!) But I don't feel ready at all, and I think S would prefer to still see me - I agree I'd feel like I was ignoring him which is silly I'm sure! Also, I am obsessed with his sleep of course, so like to know the second he nods off!
About 1 year old. He was desperate to forward face, it was me that wanted to keep him parent facing. H in the end turned him round!
Majority of the time he still faces me at nearly 1. Occasionally it's out as he is very nosey but he's happy with my mug too
so no one was forward facing from birth?
Carole - we were only parent facing when she was in the pram, but she hated the pram and was much happier in the pushchair (suitable from birth anyway) - we were pretty much forward facing from birth!! (We have a Mountain Buggy Urban Jungle)
