Thousands of miles on the Sleepy with my son from about 8-9 months of age. It is still in use and he is almost 4 years old (46.5 months).
Easy to mount and swap between bikes or just remove for a solo ride. Easy meaning seconds. I do need to raise the seat on my wife's bike to get it on and off. I have a cable lock locking it through my chainstays.
It provides a great ride; we have used it on gravel, dirt, and all paved surfaces. I need to slow to about 10 mph over speed bumps.
I think he can see enough around me to enjoy the ride. I only have a hard time hearing him when I am pounding it, in traffic, or with wind noise. We carry on regular conversations otherwise.
I ride a 56 cm Surly LHT and my wife has a Civia Midtown (probably a small) for geometry comparison.
