    The Manduca is another good option. It has a built in infant support so you don't have the heat and bulk of the insert. That said I didn't have any troubles with it with both my babies. I did prefer my sleepy wrap (like a hug a bub) for DS when he was tiny though.

    My bub didn't like the newborn insert so I just used the cushion to prop her up.

    My little one was born 4.2kg and very long so we found the insert a pita! He is now 7 weeks and about 6kg and just yesterday we wore the ergo with him sitting on the cushion from the insert and he looked a lot more comfortable in there and was a nice height.

    So I was naughty and I bought the Ergobaby carrier and a Hug-A-Bub wrap, I feel a little guilty but really couldn't figure out which one to get and if the Ergobaby doesn't work well with bub in these early weeks I can use the Hug-A-Bub and then use the Ergobaby when bub is a bit older.

    Thought I would update for anyone who may be interested in buying these.
    I absolutely love the Ergobaby carrier and so does bub, as soon as I put her in off she goes to sleep, obviously at the moment we use it with the newborn insert.
    The Hug-A-Bub sling is great too but just takes a little longer to put on so I have just been grabbing the Ergobaby instead. I probably could have done without the Hug-A-Bub.

    I still can't get my wee one to warm to it, it's just too close to my boobs and he tries to eat me every time. Unfortunately my chest is not conducive to walk/feeding so he gets really frustrated and cross that the bar is so close but not open.

    Hi would someone be able to tell me what age/weight they graduated their baby from using the infant insert to just that small cushion at the base of the insert? I guess head control would be a factor too. Thank you.

    My memory is terrible but I'm pretty sure it was about 3 months. Dd didn't like the cocoon so I just used the cushion.

    Yep it was when my daughter could support her own head at around 3 months that we could use the carrier without the insert. We didn't even worry using the pillow, she was big enough to sit up high without it.

    They can go without the insert from 5.5kg my DS was about 9-10 weeks (i think) plus it got too hot & we were both drenched after using it


    DH 37 + me 33 = DS1 3.5 & DS2 10 wks
