I have to add that I only ride around my neighborhood where there is virtually NO traffic and I am going pretty slow! I would never take any of my children on a main road on a bike!!!

No not safe at all! BUT a bike seat that sits in front of the rider might work for him- you'd be RIGHT there and they love being on front to see everything. And people sell stuff like this on craigslist or at garage sales or consignment shops. :)

I've been doing this since my child was 8 months. It's my only means of transportation and we've never had a problem. We do all our grocery shopping via bike unless it's snowy out. He loves it. He absolutely hates cars, and it definitely goes along with attachment parenting. Highly recommend _ Claremont, NH

Just because people have done it and not been injured does not mean it is safe.  People drive while under the influence all the time and don't get in wrecks.  It is still not safe.


I would never take a bike ride with a child in an Ergo.  Absolutely not.

No, I would never do this.

But I highly recommend my Weehoo!
