We took our son on a 3 month cruise through the bahamas on a 30 foot monohull when he was 6 months old. Honestly, I think people overall are just too concerned with children's safety. Don't get me wrong, it's important to keep the whole family safe, but kids are resilient and, just like adults, they learn best when allowed to make mistakes. Even a 6-month old figures out what works and what doesn't. Follow our fellow sailors' advice to an extent but also just let nature take its course.
