It is essential that your newborn baby lies flat when sleeping in their buggy for his or her overall healthy development.

There are and available that don’t have a 180 degree lie-flat positions and these are generally designed to be more appropriate for toddlers between the ages of 3 months six months. This is because it is recognised that so as to aid their development a newborn should lie flat.

If your baby is scrunched up inside their buggy, then their breathing can be compromised. As your baby’s lungs are the very last organs to develop within the womb, it’s important that the lungs get all the help and air access that they can once your baby’s born. Lying flat helps promotes lung development and also assists your baby’s respiratory system.

It’s important to note that European and British buggy standards differ a little. For instance, a buggy that might be labelled as suitable from birth within the UK may be labelled in Spain as suitable from 6 months and beyond. Some argue that as times have changed the antiquated British system needs to be updated, while many others feel it’s just fine as it is.
