Yesterday, I decided to reverse the seat direction on our Bugaboo Bee so that PK faced forward rather than facing me. Since PK is so much more alert in the stroller these days, I figured that it would make our daily walks more enjoyable for her. After two days of doing this, I decided to reverse the seat direction back so that she faces me. I did this for two main reasons:
1. I can't tell whether or not PK is comfortable if the canopy is up. She hates the sunlight in her face and flings herself forward to use the covers from her foot muff to block the sun. If I know that she's uncomfortable, I can at least try to take some actions to block the sun from her face.
2. I can't recline the seat all the way back because my diaper bag is in the way. I normally like to recline the seat all the way back when she takes a nap, so that she's a bit more comfortable.
So much for that idea! I will eventually have her facing forward, but I think I'll wait until she's older, able to communicate better, and I don't have to lug a diaper bag around.
