I wouldn't do it with a fixie, single-speed sure, fixie NO!
I have a childseat on my wife's old mtn bike. I have no problems with this, and was seriously contemplating a trailer. My buddy had a trailer, and hit a curb and the trailer flipped. Luckily, his kid was wearing his helmet (highly suggested with either method) and not hurt, but didn't want to ever ride in the trailer again!
I take my son (now 3) with me an the mtn bike and he loves it. We even do a little singletrack trail that goes through a park in the neighborhood. He loves hitting the roots and the bumps. I constantly hear from him, "Faster Daddy" and "Let's go again".
