Do you have the sakura bloom? we have a double linen from them which is what we use. they have GREAT videos on thier site for help which I loved (I had to go watch to sort out how to do it lol). Basically they are squatting in the sling with thier heinys sitting below thier knees...at first I didn't think there was any way that carry was safe but now that I know how I totally get it lol. you do a "wall of fabric" on your chest that instead of across your chest it is under your breasts, you reach up under the sling and guide the legs down, fit the heiny into the "seat of the sling" and spread thier legs then you tighten it. The trick is to not tighten the lower middle portion of the sling too much or you lose the seat and make them straight as a board (which they will slip out of...possibly). I make sure the seat fabric is tucked up under her knees really nice...I read a tip and it really helps that once you first put them in, to bend over (holding baby of course!)and adjust the sling around you and pull the legs up/fit heiny in. This helps SO much!!
