Re: Baby seat in cockpit

Hello Everyone
Well despite our platform arrangement we ended up moving Eleanor to the bow berth.
there where 2 problems
1) she does not usually sleep in a room with us and we kept on waking each other up and no one slept that well.
2) One night it was so hot that she could not sleep at all and was perfectly miserable.

We ended up moving her bed to the nose berth where ventilation was better and everyone was much happier.


This also meant that we could not really take any guests on board any more...


Had a great time

Andreas

We just got a Salus Bijoux lifejacket for the new baby, seems that he can only lie down in it without having it ride up onto his chin, at least until he's a bit bigger. We have a co-sleeper to put him in, and a compact travel cage, umm play yard that might just fit in the main saloon.

Same here. No need to over think it.

Sea sickness not a problem for our kids (or car sickness for that matter)

Go for it. When they're still content to nap in a car-seat, and before they're crawling and running everywhere it is sooooo much easier to boat with the little ones.

Re: Baby seat in cockpit

40 some years ago when our daughter was an infant we had a 24 ft boat. We use a "car bed" (remember those) wedged into the saloon seats. Never used a baby seat in the cockpit, always held her. Maybe it was easier on a small boat.

She sailed with us from about 6 months of age. When our son was born we took him on his first cruise at 4 weeks of age from New Haven to Block Island. Same car bed and same mother's arms.

Frankly, Jim, I don't know for sure. Our old boat ("Mello Belle"--because she was very mellow at sea and often the "Belle of the Ball" in our harbor) was her first experience and she was just abject when we sold her ("Daddy, how can you sell Mello Belle, she's part of our family!?!") She didn't like HyLyte at first, even though she had her own cabin--still stuffed with toys, art supplies, et al to this day--because it replaced Mello Belle and it was hard for our dog, Nibbles ('cause he always wanted a little nibble of whatever you were eating), to make his way to or from the cockpit without a boost (the companionway ladder was too steep and she wasn't then big enough to handle the job.)

N'any case, she's been sailing all over heck and gone ever since, most recently a passage from St. Martin to Trinidad--by-passing St. Vincent to our relief. (She's been on power boats also but doesn't care for them as she explains: "Daddy, they're too stinky! You can't even smell the ocean!") At this point she takes great pride in the fact that she and her mother can handle the "big boat" but when questioned she still says she liked Mello Belle "better".
