Bicycle seats vs. bike trailers for children

Q: I’m in the market to buy a bicycle seat so I can ride my bike with my 1 year old. Which is safer—a bicycle-mounted seat or a bike trailer?

A: Both types of bicycle seats have their safety issues. Because of its low profile, a bicycle trailer, which attaches to the rear axle or frame of a bike and can transport one child age 1 to 6 or so, can be difficult for motorists to see, especially in limited light. (If you go this route, get a 31/2 -foot- to 7-foot-tall, high-visibility orange flag for it.) Trailers are also wider than the bike, so they take up more of the roadway. If you’re riding on the shoulder of a road, which we don’t recommend because we consider trailers “off-road” vehicles, the trailer can stick out into the road if you’re not careful. And trailers can tip over if you

AAP Updates Recommendations on Car Seats for Children

The American Academy of Pediatrics is publishing updated
recommendations on car safety seats, but the real-world impact on how parents
should use the seats in vehicles will be minimal.

In the updated policy statement, “Child Passenger Safety,”
and an accompanying technical report, to be published in the November 2018
issue of Pediatrics (published online Aug. 30), the AAP recommends
children remain in a rear-facing car safety seat as long as possible, until
they reach the highest weight or height allowed by their seat. Previously, the
AAP specified children should remain rear-facing at least to age 2; the new recommendation
removes the specific age milestone.

“Fortunately, car seat manufacturers have created seats that
allow children to remain rear-facing until they weigh 40 pounds or more, which
means most children can remain rear-facing past their second birthday,” said
Benjamin Hoffman, MD, FAAP, lead author of the policy statement and chair of
