<p>Hi everyone,</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I've been terribly negligent about posting and visiting lately, what with a kid and a new job.  Still, I've been doing some checking in, and do intend to start both posting and training a lot more soon.  One thing which might help:</p>
<p>We took our daughter (now 14 months) on her first bike ride yesterday.  She was freaked out by helmets, but once she was in the bike-trailer she seemed OK with wearing one.  The problem was, the helmet was huge.  It seems to be almost as small as they come.  We can adjust the padding inside, but it doesn't seem overly wise to have her wear such a massive thing on her head.  She could barely see!  Does anyone have any recommendations for helmets for toddlers?  How can we get one to fit her? </p>
<p> </p>
<p>One other question: We're contemplating continuing with our family expansion.  Does anyone have any feedback on single vs. double trailers?  Are double trailers not super-heavy to tow?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thanks for any input!  I have added a photo of little Katie as thanks!<a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/51982/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="IMG_3275.jpg" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13053" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13053/width/667/height/500" style="; width: 667px; height: 500px"></a></p>

<p>I'm kind of doubtful that a helmet would stay in place very well of not produce further injuries.  I started my son in a trailer at about the same age and often removed the helmet when I was out of sight of my wife, it seemed pointless and just aggravated him.  Overall, the trailers seem significantly safer than carriers on the bike.  Outside of "worrywart nation" people just throw a leg over and go:</p>
