Kids

My two and a half year old comes rafting with us all the time. Usually at some point she ends up falling asleep. Does any one have pictures or ideas of frame set ups with a place for her to sleep that she will not roll out of through rapids. Obviously not straped in, just looking for some suggestions, so my wife doesn't have to hold here the whole time. Also looking for some ideas just to make the front more comfortable for passangers? Thanks!

i came w/this for a dog that always slid off the decks when i hit a little no name & he wasn't paying attention. ALWAYS hung tough in big water, but fell out alot on class 2.
weird. anyway.........

pool noodles. usually have a channel for running rope. i cut short sections and strung them together & strapped then across the spaces (to aviod paw entrapment).

but that was for my dog, not your kid.

I've seen folks turn an entire drop bag/bay into a crib. I never have enough space to give up a whole bay, but it looked comfy.

I used to rig dry bags around the sides to build a soft railing.

Another option is a car seat, with the seat belt removed, strapped down to the deck.
