Do you have a babywearing group near you? http://www.sakurabloom.com/pages/Babywearing-Groups.html  You might email and ask what their lending library includes they may have Ergos for you to try.  
Here is a really good youtube that is well paced and demonstrates developing a good seat and proper posture to the wearer so that you don't get and slipage when you are wearing baby.

Here is a list of baby wearing groups hopefully there will be one near you. http://www.sakurabloom.com/pages/Babywearing-Groups.html  Often they can help with teaks that will help you and offer your little one peace of mind. Praciting in front of a mirror with a stuffed animal is a good way to learn with out your little one freaking out. He doesn't sound too freaked out that is really good!

A froggied position has baby's knees up about level with baby's belly button, bent about 90*(degrees) and about shoulder width a part. Baby's feet are best positioned outside of the carrier that way baby can not stand up or have the weight pressure of the upper body placed on the hip, knee, and ankle joints.       Here is the instructions from Beco on using a Butterfly 2 with a young baby. http://www.becobabycarrier.com/cat-1/butterfly-2      Baby...
Look on Craigslist, Ebay and there is a yahoogroup called babywearing swap.
