Ds also puts his arms under the straps and has never complained about it!

I have some other carriers that are prettier (and great for when dd was younger), but the Ergo is the most comfortable and functional for me these days.
In response to some of the other posters' questions: Dd sometimes has both arms inside the carrier and seems fine/comfy. I haven't ever had my arm go numb. I also use my tote all the time, and it's great. I can easily fit the Ergo and a few other odds and ends (like a toy and diaper).
To Tanya, the tote is almost perfect, but I suggest adding a magnetic button (like the kind some purses have) so that I could have the option of closing the tote. It would be a nice touch for when I just have the carrier in the tote--I could toss the tote in the backseat of my car and know the carrier won't fall out (not that it ever has, but I like the idea of knowing that it wouldn't lol!).
