Baby and a Brompton?

Dear bikeforum,

I'll be having a baby boy in July.
In the meantime, my wife and I have been enjoying our Brompton.

Any tips for having a baby on a Brompton?

I just heard from my friend that in Holland, they recommend only having the baby in front.

I recommend having the baby in a trailer. Googled this:

Danny Macaskill seems to also prefer a kiddie trailer.

Hmph?

It's a standard YouTube video. Searchable: the title is "Riding a Brompton bike with 2 children" posted by Hungarian Bromptoneers.
