Re: Baby seat in cockpit

My kids were toddler age or older when we first started, so I can't really answer that. I would think that the motion of the ocean will be kind of similar to that inside the womb, so I would expect the babies to be somewhat less prone to motion sickness, but this is pure speculation on my part. If you want to reduce motion, I'd be inclined to put the seat facing either front or backward (probably backward so I could see into the seat easier) and as close to the centerline as possible. That will limit the side to side rocking. Keeping the seat as close to the center of the boat (fore and aft) also would seem to help reduce the hobby-horse feeling. But again, that's just conjecture on my part.
