    We've just had a baby! Well, 5 months ago. With spring approaching the urge to get out and about is strong, naturally I want to go cycling so we either leave the little fellow at home or take him with us.

    I've seen a few bike trailers about and probably won't be putting him in one until he's at least a year old, nor will I be doing off roady stuff. That being said there is plenty of safer routes we can do but do any of you have any experience of bike trailers and kid transporting?

    Congrats!
    I think it is recommended that they can ride in a trailer as soon as they can hold their head up well.
    I've had a Burley Bee for 7 years, used by my 2 kids, and now the neighbors borrow it.

    Sturdy, smooth, fairly light, and folds up enough to fit in the trunk of a car. After you attach the connector that stays on your bike, it's very easy to attach and remove. If you and your partner will both be pulling it, go ahead and get an extra attachment for their bike. Makes things a lot easier.

    Lots of fun pulling the kids around. I loved picking them up at daycare on my bike. My 5-year old has outgrown it. Will be getting a tag-along bike this Summer

    I also still use it for trips to the grocey store. Can carry about 100 pounds I think.

    Working in bike shops, I installed plenty of those seatpost-mount trail-a-bikes, and they always felt awkward to me. But this thing is great. The pivoting/rotating mount is impressive. And the aluminum frame is very light compared to others.

    It does require an included proprietary rear rack. It's a very sturdy piece of hardware, but I need to get some new panniers as mine won't fit it. I needed to replace them anyway before our trip this fall, so no big deal.

    I really really like riding with the croozer, much more than with the bike seat but nevertheless if my son is falling asleep it is kind of frightening how he is sitting in there... head dangling sideways

    edit: Iam using the model of 2010, maybe the new models are better that way
