I came across a YouTube tutorial today on how to use a blanket in your ergo baby carrier instead of the infant insert.
Has anybody ever done this? Do you have any photos?

I tried a towel. Didn't find it worked that well so I ended up buying the insert it was $35 and she gets a bit sweaty in it. But well worth it knowing she is in there properly supported.

I used the insert as I don't think I could create that same level of support and it was easy to use

I don't have photos but as DD was born early jan we didn't always use the insert in the heat. We used a rolled up terry nappy, or you can take the bottom out of the full insert so it's just a cushion they are sitting on. It worked really well.

I also use the cushion at the bottom of the insert to help prop her up - she would get so hot in the full insert, it's like a doona!
I started using just the cushion from about 8 weeks (she would have been 4.3kg then with not great head control).
I can imagine a rolled up blanket would be similar to the cushion at the base of the proper insert. I just make sure her butt is on the cushion and legs comfortably hanging over either froggied at the front or one at the side.

Thank you ladies.. I popped a rolled up blanket in the ergo last night and it worked a treat. She slept from 7:30-10:30 & I just popped her straight to bed when we got home.
