Helmets for Infants

I am doing research on age of babies and bike helmets, think my lo (7.5ish months) is too young.

Any good sites or advise

TIA!

ETA: Found this site and it says bike riding is not recommened for babies under a year

yeah, we didn't get the boys in the trailer until they were over a year (they turned 1 in oct, so the season was pretty much over at that point). they had helmets at that age though, i think my dh ordered them from some bike catalogue or online site.

yeah, unfortunately your little one is too young. Even at 15 months the smallest helmets didn't fit my dd too well.

the child needs to be 1 minimum, you can find smaller helmets at a bike shop

Yes. Bike riding, either in a seat or in a trailer, is not safe until a baby is over 12 months. It's also unsafe for a baby under 12 months to wear a helmet
