The Bicycle Helmet Safety Institute says:
"Nobody we have met in the injury prevention field recommends taking an infant of less than 12 months in a bicycle child seat, trailer, sidecar or any other carrier. Nobody. And we do not either."

There are risks in everything.

That said, pedestrian statistics are for walkers, not cyclists. And not all injuries to cyclists are deaths due to car crashes. And the risks have to include both risks of injury and prevalence (if I spend 700 hours a year driving and 5 hours a year biking, then one car accident doesn't make driving less safe than biking). And there are no statistics there (and none that I've seen) that show any safety numbers on babies being worn (for death or injury).

"Bottom line! Wearing a baby while riding a bike is less dangerous than strapping a kid to a car seat for a car ride. Shocker!"

Nothing you have said shows that this is true.
