Carrying child on lap

Slightly older children of parents who use wheelchairs can sit on a lap unassisted

Authors comments
From about 1 year of age the user’s three children have been able to sit freely on his lap without a harness. Before that age, they wore a harness, see related tip.

When the children were really small, they could be suspended in the baby carrier facing the user. This solution worked until they were about 8 months old and too large for their legs to fit. Once the children are old enough to sit by themselves, usually nothing is needed when the children ride along.
