We’re often asked whether infants can ride in the Croozer. The answer is yes, of course!
The Croozer provides a protective cocoon for young passengers in traffic. Unlike a child bike seat, the trailer has a safe and roomy passenger compartment with a full internal roll cage that completely surrounds your child, providing unbeatable protection from all sides.
Although most countries and states (including Germany) do not have mandatory helmet laws, your children in the Croozer can of course start wearing a helmet as soon as they can fit into one. Be sure to familiarise yourself with the laws that apply in your region.
Children from 0 to 6 years of age can ride in the Croozer.
The Croozer Baby Seat was specially designed for infants aged 1 to 10 months, with safety as the top priority:
Remember to take frequent breaks when carrying your infant in the Croozer. The standard advice for car seats also applies to the Baby Seat: never leave your child in the seat for more than an hour or two at a time. The back and abdominal muscles of your baby are not strong enough and need to relax now and then. Take a break and let them stretch out and rest for a while. Then you can continue your walk or ride.
Croozer offers ergonomic seating accessories that prevent slipping and ensure that your child is comfy and well cushioned: the Croozer Baby Seat and the Croozer Baby Supporter. Safe and child-friendly: these two products – like our Croozer Kid and Croozer Kid Plus trailers – are tested regularly for harmful substances by TÜV Rheinland and have earned the Toxproof safety mark.
Even young infants who are not yet able to sit upright unassisted can ride in the Croozer. Our patented Baby Seat can be used for carrying children aged 1 to 10 months. Like a hammock for bicycle trailers, it floats inside the protective frame of the Croozer’s passenger compartment, held securely in place by tensioned straps.
Families with older Croozer models (2009 and earlier) can use a bicycle-trailer seat from the company Weber.
Once your child is able to easily sit upright unassisted, then it’s probably time to transition them to the normal seat with a Baby Supporter, which offers additional neck and torso support for young children aged approx. 10 to 20 months.
You can use our model guide to determine which Baby Seat or Baby Supporter fits to your bicycle trailer. Options are available for every Croozer model ever built.
Please note: standard infant car seats and infant slings from other manufacturers are NOT compatible with the Croozer and therefore cannot be used.
A perfect winter duo: for the chillier months, you can use your Baby Seat in combination with our cosy Winter Bunting Bag.
