He invented the first reversible baby carriage. The buggy designed with a joint in the center that allowed for the bassinet to face towards the person pushing. He invented it so that the bassinet could face the opposite way as well. He also fixed the axels on the wheels so that it is more mobile. His new invention with the wheels allowed it to move into smaller spaces with less trouble.

    There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I dont know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment?s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
