Wait, 10 kilometers per hour? Not miles per hour? That is insane.

Wow, I am pretty risk-averse when it comes to my kid but even I have regularly exceeded that 15 mph max with the Chariot (only downhill or with a good tailwind, though!) and my husband averages about...

Oh, but the stroller attachment is necessary if you use the trailer for transportation rather than just for fun -- sometimes the kids are asleep or you don't have a good place to lock up the trailer,...

Yes, the baby supporter is what we used until last week. We also had the sling, which we used only for jogging. We would have used it for cycling had she not completely hated being pulled by a bike...

Good idea! My daughter is tiny -- under 25 pounds at nearly two -- and I would not want a trailer smaller than the Chariot for her.

Wow, that trailer is HUGE. That is the same Maxi Cosi seat I have (well, I have the US version, but it turns out the dimensions are the same) and based on that photo, that trailer has to be a foot...

The Chariot is wonderful other than the carseat issue, and the carseat thing is only a temporary problem. So I think that's a good choice.

Oh, you might have totally different carseats where you are! So disregard what I said. US carseat standards are not the same as European standards, so even when we get European models here (like my...

There is no way you are getting a car seat into a Chariot Cougar. We have two infant carseats -- a Graco Snugride and a Maxi Cosi Mico -- and both are far too long and wide to fit into the Chariot. ...

Some of the child seats have a lower back, which would help, but the other option is a helmet that does not come to a point in the back. I think the Nutcase helmets are completely rounded.

Forget 20 pounds of stuff, I travel pretty light with my kid, but there is not even any place to put a water bottle. So add a big backpack to that lady's outfit. Other than the weird head gadget...

1500 calories a day is not enough to breastfeed a 4 month old. Feeding a baby that age adds about 500 calories a day to your needs, and an adult can't really live on 1000 calories a day, not...

My kid absolutely hated the trailer at six months and would have screamed the entire time. I'd have a plan for that situation. She loves it now, but did not get to that point until she was closer...

Another breastfeeding mom here, and yes, I think it's just a matter of fluid, it's temporary, and you probably should not worry too much about it. I also think Gatorade is a good suggestion.

Yes, you can run with them in the convertible trailer before one year. Some pediatricians say to wait until six months, but the Chariot, at least, gives a much smoother ride than most jogging...
