There are also belt options out there where they have a harness that goes around the child’s waist, over the shoulders and between the legs so he or she can’t wriggle or pull out. The quick-release buckles make getting in (before the helmet is donned) easy. The child’s harness fastens to a foam-rubber pad with handlebar-type grips. A large belt, attached to the front of the pad, goes around the rider’s waist to secure the child to you. The child cannot fall off unless you do. My kids routinely fall asleep back there, and we have even ridden off-road, jumping and bouncing around, with no fear of them getting thrown off. Of course, if you did crash, the child would be attached to you, which might cause additional injury if they ended up between you and whatever you bounced against. On the other hand, you can also jump up to leap out of harm’s way, and the child—since he or she is attached—will automatically come with you.
