    She doesn't like ring slings. I'd say she's at least 6kg, she hasn't been weighed in a while, but she's 7 weeks and quite chubba. I've been wearing her at least 6 hours a day in it.
    I feel maybe I'm doing it wrong, maybe tying it too tightly and it's pressing on my ribs too much? But if i tied it looser it wouldn't be secure, and it feels fine while I'm wearing it.

    Misskitty, I was thinking of trying a babywearing group. There's a local woman who is queen of the woven wraps, I'm in awe of her LOL. I might have to stalk her and get her to teach me her magic tricks.

    My DD was about 6kg when I started using the Ergo, and I never used the insert and didn't have a problem with her legs. I like the idea above with the rolled up towel (hand towel I'd assume!).

    You're welcome to try my manduca. It had a built in infant seat. Sounds like you have a Sylvie. She would only ever sleep in the maitai and gave up day sleeps about 3 months. I put her on my back very early because I was so fed up with not being able to do anything. Little bugger had a nap at daycare today and is still awake now.

    Thanks SPC, I'll trial the ergo and let you know if i need to play with your manduca. Yes, back carry might need to be an option sooner rather than later, I can't do anything for O at the moment without making her awake and grumpy. Babywearing is all well and good when you don't have to wipe bottoms, tie shoelaces or search under the couch for tiny pieces of Lego.

    I've checked my pictures and sylvie was on the back at 4 months and about 5kg, with reasonable head control.

    I second this I got to the point where my shoulders and back were absolutely killing me at the end of the day from using my moby. So I bought an ergo and used a rolled up blanket to boost DD up. She is 5 months now and I am still using it as she seems to sit better in there with it underneath her.

    YouTube the ergo heart to heart infant insert! I was using it wrong and bub hated it :/
    And if its too warm to use the full insert the little cushion in the bottom comes out so you can just use that by itself
