Mounting child carrier seat on an upright trike?  
I have balance and mobility issues that make riding a regular bike impossible for me.   I just picked up a older upright tricycle on craigslist, it's a 3 gear with dual rear driven wheels.   I would love to put a child seat on it to take my 3 year old daughter on rides with me.  I know that there are seats like the WeeRide and IBert that mount on the front handlebar stem, are there any others (either front or rear) that anyone else knows of?  Has anyone been able to pull a bike trailer w/ an upright trike?

Just trying to find out what my options are.    Thanks,
Rebecca

Trailer would work fine
Most trailers are designed to clamp on to whatever bar is available all you need is an appropriate bar in the rear of the trike.

There is a tandem style that is supposed to attach to the seat post of a DF that I would expect to not work as well unless you had a properly exposed seat post.

Also most delta trikes end up with a rear platform usually taken up with a big basket, but it could be rigged for almost anything including a child seat.
