YMMV but betwwen hot sweaty summers and cold windy winters the few times I might have ridden with a baby before babies number two and three made anything but a car impractical were not worth spending any money on. Better was to go out on my bike, ride really hard to get my cycling on and then come home ready to chill and walk with the baby in a pram or a sling. Young babies don't belong on bikes IMO. Their brains and necks aren't designed to be jostled. Wait a few years until the young one is big enough to ride their own bike? Now I can't keep up with baby number one. Was a time he could only beat me going uphill but now anything but steep downhill, I'm toast.
