I don't know if you have a soft structured carrier (like an Ergo) but I put
my 14 month old in a front carry in one of those and get in the cab and put
the seat belt around both of us. It feels safer to me that way not having
her bouncing around "loose" in the back of the cab. We also use our carrier
to wear her around on our backs when it's too much hassle to drag a stroller
with us, or it won't be useful at our destination.
