So I held baby in the manner shown below, with my hand between her legs. I wondered if this is an okay hold. Looks weird when you see people do it but seems common. I am worried I hurt baby. Do others use this hold?

This is an awesome hold. Babies like it too as it settles their upset tummies from my experience.

Babies are pretty good at telling us when they are uncomfortable. If you're hurting your baby by carrying him/her that way, they will let you know.

I used to hold my kids like that all the time. It helped settle them.

This was dd's favourite way to be held.

That's the way we held DD if she was unsettled. It seemed to help tummy plus they enjoy looking around.

I used to hold dd1 like that, she liked it, stopped her crying, I think her tummy used to hurt a lot..
Dd2 hated it, tried a few times and she screamed, so I tried other things until I found what she liked..
