    I have the old style performance - so that's the lime green without the new padding - which I prefer anyway. (I upgraded and sold my sport)

    I found for my older and taller toddler, the extra inch in height on the performance, especially in comparison to the Sport which was very soft in comparison was better in terms of back support for DD and meant less lean and reach back.

    I seriously hope they don't try and talk you out of it again! Lol seems like they have a real love of the Bjorn...!!

    Yay!! good choice
    Having the top chest / back strap adjusted correctly is important to the weight distribution..

    So, try not to tighten it too much at first, you want it to be firm but not taught..also, I find adjusting the shoulder straps first better for positioning the top strap, and I find it doesn't need much adjusting at all..

    Just to add that the posture in the ergo is far better for not only spine but also hip development. I took my dd to the paediatric orthopedic surgeon for a hip check (history of hip dysplasia) and he was very impressed with the posture in the ergo

    Sounds right to me. My DS's legs are spread out and kind of wrapped around my mid section, not hanging down like in a BB.

    Did you watch the DVD or have a look on YouTube? Bubs bum should be lower than his knees in a seated position.

    I just watched it now. I think being so different I have a bit of getting used to that's all. Its just the legs are so spread compared to BB. I figure as she gets older she ll sit on my hip and the legs will be spread anyway right?
    Maybe she is to little still and it will just get more comfy as she gets bigger?
