    Default Babies on bikes

    Hi Ladies.. Just wondering if anyone knows the youngest you can take a baby in some sort of seat/attachment for a push bike? And which method of taking a baby on a bike do you prefer? I usually ride mine everywhere with DD (almost 5yo), but cant now that i have DS (3 weeks old)... Itching to ride again!

    TIA

    i have seen an awesome bike with a platform that a baby capsule straps in to. don't know how expensive it would be though.

    Oh that would be awesome! I dare say most seats wouldnt be safe for less than 6 months old tho? Sigh.

    They can go in a trailer from 6 months, seat from 12 months, or if they have really good head control they can go on one of the seats that goes on the front from 8 months. I think we started using ours at around 10 months. DD LOVES it so much!
