Child seat: regular bike vs. Yuba/Xtracycle

My daughter is getting close to the age where she can safely ride in a child seat on a bike. I'm deciding between putting a rear child seat on a regular bike (something like a Yepp Maxi) or springing for a longtail cargo bike like a Yuba Mundo or an Xtracycle, also with a Yepp. It seems the longtails are much more stable for loading/unloading with just one adult, which would be really handy. What are people's experiences with using a child seat on a regular bike? Is it preferable to have two adults? Part of the use case would be picking up from daycare after work, so I can't always count on a second adult being available to help.
