My wife has just had our second child very recently and we want to go cycling as a family so I was looking to buy a trailer for the child to sit in but also able to convert into a buggy. it would appear that the child has to be 18 months old to use one; is that correct? If not, which trailers are available / recommended for new born babies? I want (obviously) for my baby to be safe so I want to buy one that will be both comfortable and safe for the baby without having to buy a Rolls Royce of trailers. As a family, we will just be looking to cycle on footpaths, old railway tracks, cycleways etc so I do not need one that will work on mountain tops! I was looking at a Chariot trailer but was going to cost nearly £900 for what I thought I needed. Surely there must be other options. Your help and advice would really be appreciated.
