baby on board

Does anyone know of a high visibility jersey with some sort of "baby on board" type message?
My son sits on s front mounted bike seat so from the back you don't know he's there and cars get awful close when they think it's just an adult cycling along.

I'd love some sort of high visibility vest that makes it clear there's a baby on the bike too.

Thanks in advance,
Steve

Why not just get one of those safety vests, either from a sporting goods store or a shop that sells them to fire,police, and utility workers, or even go here for one with built-in LEDS, and stencil your own lettering.

Any written message will go unnoticed unless written in bold 10 inch letters. Better to wear a shirt or jacket with big bold POLITE written across the back. That will get more attention.

My opinion- if you're worried about your kid, don't take him, or take him on a different route- don't expect to somehow make all the motorists safer.

"Baby on Board" bumper stickers were all the rage here maybe 15 years ago (Texas). I can't imagine that they really did any good, though, and doubt it would be much different on a bike.
