NPR's Michele Norris talks with Dr. Darshak Sanghavi, author of A Map of the Child: A Pediatrician's Tour of the Body, about the trend toward keeping kids in baby strollers past their toddler years. Dr. Sanghavi says it is important for children to get out and feel the freedom of self-movement. But he understands parents' need to restrain a child from running wild in certain environments.
