Health Tip: Stay Safe Biking With Baby

Health Tip: Stay Safe Biking With Baby


(HealthDay News) -- Though a family bike ride with baby in tow can be a fun way to get exercise, it can also be dangerous.

The American Academy of Pediatrics offers these safety suggestions when biking with baby:

  • Only allow young children to ride with an adult. Babies 12 months and younger shouldn't ride on a bike at all, even in a seat or carrier.
  • Children older than 1 year should ride in a rear-mounted seat or trailer for children, and always while wearing a helmet.
  • Make sure that a rear-mounted child seat is properly and safely attached, and the child is properly strapped in.
  • Stick to low-traffic streets, parks or bike paths.
