 Helmets for bike trailer?

We can't wait to go out biking as soon as we get our hands on a bike trailer but I'm just wondring if your LO wore a helmet in them? And if so, am I even going to be able to find one to fit DS's teeny-tiny head. He'll likely be almost 12 months.

DD is 17 months and I bought her a CCM bike helmet at Canadian Tire last week to use with our bike trailer. They do make helmets for 1 year olds, and hers is completely adjustable, so it fits fine... I can't say she's happy wearing it though tongueold

I lucked out and found it on sale for $16.

Yes, DD always wore a helmet in the bike trailer. We found a really tiny helmet at the local bike shop.

 I think it's obvious.

We bought the smallest one we could find for DD at Canadian Tire. It came with some inserts that we could attach to the insides to make it a bit smaller to fit her head.

We bought DD a Giro helmet that is adjustable via a small dial at the back from a local bike store. We went with something that was slightly higher end for our own reasons but they definitely make helmets that small in all kinds of price ranges. smile Good luck!

We just got a bike trailer and found a helmet for our 6 month old online at mec.ca - they have a couple of different options for infant bike helmets.

We found last year that the smallest we could find was a laser bob helmet. We ordered it from a bike store in Niagara. DD seemed to find it quite comfortable. I'd actally like to sell that one now because she has outgrown it (anyone in NS need a infant helmet??)
