We sail with two small children. Here are a couple of shots of child management aboard "Sunshine", our 50' Samson Ketch. The car seat is connected in the normal manner by ratchet straps to padeyes on deck. The bounce seat hangs from our bimini , which is framed by 1.5 " aluminum welded tubing . The seat has several popular locations, based on the conditions , including one with a down haul , which allows the kids to have their feet on deck without swinging. I've thought about one for me!

We have been taking our daughter sailing since she was two weeks old. We would have gone earlier but Mom had a C-section and wanted a little time to heal.

Anyway, at first she was in a boppy carrier (Mini-Me carrier) on her mother or down below in her car seat witch is secured in the quarter berth. Now that she is a year old, we have her in a PFD and let her crawl around the cockpit. She is not able to climb out of the cockpit so we do not have her in a harness yet. That will be next season.

Getting the kid used to the PFD has been a several month battle. We first tried it out in the swimming pool. I have to say I wish my PFD had a built in head rest. It looks quite comfortable. Then we made her wear it for increasing amounts of time while underway until she got used to it. It is hard for her to crawl in the PFD so that is the only time she screams about it. When she is not wearing the PFD and we are underway she is in her car seat down below.

This has been a great forum. My wife and I are so excited about getting underway with our 5 week old daughter.
