Carrying a toddler on bicycle: trailer vs. kid seat

Message length 300 characters recommended

It seems to me the trailer is more flexible and potentially safer, since the center of gravity is much closer to the ground. I would also worry of having a 20+ pound weight on the rear rack will cause us to make more riding mistakes, and if the bike falls over, there goes the toddler.

However, the bike seat seems more fun for the toddler since he can see more of the ride and feels more like a co-rider than a passenger.
