I have a baby hawk mei tei that I use for ds who is 10 and a 1/2 months. the way I was taught to wear it (with him in the front) has me wrapping the final tie around him twice and then tying it in a knot on the back. The person I bought it from said I could also just wrap it once (for the final tie) and tie it around his back in my front. So- the thing is that as he is getting bigger, and especially with all of our winter layers, I am now able to only barely tie the knot in the back of me- when I wrap it around him and then tie it behind me. So the other day I tried it by just wrapping it and tying it on my front / his back, but it really did not feel secure to me.
so- options- should I keep trying that method and get used to it?
or- if I do get another one- which I could do- would I get a toddler hawk, or a baby hawk with the longer straps added?
is it designed to just srap around and tie behind his back or is it actually better to tie it aorund my back as I prefer?
what exactly is bigger on a toddlerhawk and do I really need that for a 10 and a 1/2 month old?
