the bobike mini is good it goes on the front of your bike which I found great!
you can probbaly find one relatively cheaply on ebay perhaps. You would also find it easy to sell on again later.

Oh, I was just having a related conversation here .

The bobike mini looks cute, I've not used it before. Is the child in front of the handlebars?

I'm a fan of the centric safe haven. Costs about £60, new. It goes on the front, on the crossbar, but it has a harness and so on. It's only meant to be good from a year, but I'm sure it'd be fine for an 11-month-old.

I'd recommend the rhode gear seats for the rear of your bike, very safe,ds1 dropped my bike with ds2 in his seat and he was fine, easy to use and comfy for baby. Used mine since ds was 6 months, still using it every day at 2 yrs.Even tried to buy another recently to keep at grannies.

I really have never seen the bobike mini, so it's hard for me to comment.

I can say the centric safe haven is easy to take on and off (although a special bar stays on), and very easy to use. It's better for a slightly higher weight (18kg vs 15kg).

I'd have a look at your local bike shop and see what they stock - fitting these isn't that easy, so unless you or your DP is a real bike fanatic, I'd go with whatever your bike shop can fit.

Also, Rhode Gear do some nice back seats, which is less cozy, but better if you want to be able to move the seat from bike to bike - they go on a standard sort of luggage rack on the back.
