We started all our kids in a car seat lashed into the cockpit. That seems to work best as no-one wanted to be left below. Once they're crawling, a short tether (really short) works well. By the time they're two they can go up as far as the mast on a jackline.
We have 6 and so far no-one has taken an "unexpected swim" (knock-knock-knock)
I did have to rescue my oldest daughter's doll once (early May+ Lake Michigan=Brrr!)
