I'm not sure where to post this so please move it if necessary.
I feel like my bub isn't positioned properly. If I hold her with one hand, she's closer to my body, but then that defeats the purpose of using a carrier. Should she be lying back as far as she is? I have all the straps as tight as they'll go. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do to improve her position, her back is arched quite a bit so I don't imagine this would be comfortable or good for her. Please help!

Bubs position in ergo using infant insert

It connects to the shoulder straps

Oh definitely not right!
I'll second the pp, there isn't meant to be a strap across baby's back like that.

To me it doesn't look right. It's been a while since I used mine but I think I spread ds's legs so they were sticking out on the sides.
Also I'm not sure what you have done with that middle strap.
There are some good YouTube clips that show you how to position bub if you want to have a look.

When I used the infant insert, bubs head didn't come over the top of the ergo. He was more like snuggled down near my boobs and only the very top of his head as poking out. Does that make any sense? It looks like you need to make sure she has froggy legs happening and wiggle the insert down a bit. Hope that helps! Ill try and find a pic

Ah ok I see its the normal strap. But it looks like its done way too tight and is arching the baby's back.
She also looks very high up. Can you loosen the shoulder straps and nestle the insert down into the bottom of the carrier a bit more?
The shoulder straps don't need to be really tight, you should be taking the weight on the hip strap.

Yes I agree missy Mack. I thought it was an ergo sport but you are right, mine has the straps attached right at the edge of the fabric, not around baby's back.
