    Once they can support their head basicaly 6-12 months

    You can take them out in car seat if you put that in the trailer – in that case aged 1 day

    Lovely thanks Junkyard. Thought it would give the baby and me a nice break from Mum ๐Ÿ˜€

    Makes sure the seat is secure and still reward facing though
    I used those strap thingies you use for securing bikes on racks to secure the seat to the trailer frame.

    I then minced just in case

    Hey guys,

    I’m going to be a dad for the first time and wanted to get a bike trailer. Obviously down to head control but roughly how old do they need to be before you take them out in one? Also can anyone recommend a specific type?

    Cheers ๐Ÿ™‚

    What Junkyard said, but also i would add that you shouldn’t take them offroad till they are a bit older. And go easy on potholes, up kerbs (if you have to) and on speedbumps etc ๐Ÿ˜‰

    My two love it- i didn’t take either of them out till they were at least 18 months old though. And offroad for the first time when they were about 2.

    It’s great riding along listening to the giggling coming from behind ๐Ÿ˜€

    There was a baby sling seat available when I was looking (many moons ago) I thinknit was made by a company called weber

    It fits a lot of trailers and takes babies from birth.

    Thanks ๐Ÿ˜€

    Mines a Phillips Shetland one, i bought it from a mate for ยฃ30 after his son got his own bike.
    Iv’e seen some pretty good ones in Go Outdoors for about ยฃ119- Decathlon ones are similar, they look pretty much the same as mine. So that means i can recommend them ๐Ÿ˜‰
    ยฃ119 is about right for a two seater…

    Took our nipper out (very very carefully) for the first time when he was about 7 months, he loved it and it sent him to sleep better than anything else we’d tried up to that point, transferring a snoozing infant from trailer to cot soon became a well honed skill.

    From about ten months he was more than happy to go for longer, faster road rides and after about a year we started venturing off road. Unintentionally Got him airborne at the FOD at 13 months, he didn’t even wake up!

    Mind you this is in a Chariot Cougar 1, which has pretty decent head support and suspension, without this we’d probably have waited much longer.
