Hi just to tell you what we do. Are child was born 5 years ago and moved aboard at two days old. We where in Queensland Australia at the time. He stayed with us for the next three years sailing and play on the beach. NEVER TAKE YOUR EYES OFF THEM and you will be right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I mounted a baby car seat the cockpit ( under the doger) it worked great when there young and your comming in to a marina or tricky bit of navigation. Its hard to watch them and hard bits around. The baby cribe was bolted to the v-birth bulkhead and we used padding on the sides. We did leave the front hatch open onice and he got wet . We netted the boat and tied the netting from the safety lines down to the bullwork and made jack lines that stayed thight up on the cabin. When we moved from yacht to shore we just waited till one of us was stable in the tender then we pasted him down. We fitted him in a homemade life jacket and he wore it till it fell off. hope this has helped.
