<p>My daughter just turned 2 in December, and therefore does not yet know how to ride a bike. We want to do family bike rides. However, she's the size of a 3 or 4 year old (37.5" tall, 37 lbs). Most child bike seats only go up to 40 lbs, but I know there are a few that go up to 50 lbs. I was wondering if anyone could give recommendations for those higher weight limit seats, or if I should just get a double trailer instead (we also have a 5 month old son). I wouldn't want to spend a tremendous amount of money on a bike seat if it's only going to last a few months or a year. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thoughts? Suggestions? </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thank you so much!</p>

<p>ETA: Has anyone used a Bellelli Pepe Clamp Fit Baby Carrier for Bikes? It's got a 50 lb limit (or age 7) and has good reviews as far as I can find.</p>

<p>Since you have two already I would just get a double trailer.  Otherwise next year you'll have to buy another bike seat and you won't be able to take the two kids out alone.  I have a trailer I picked up at a consignment sale for $20 so I say watch craigslit and garage sales to see if you can score one cheap.</p>
