I find that I get the best results when I tie it a bit tighter than I think I'll need it, and pull the slack in the shoulder pieces to the front. It's a stretchy material and gives under your baby's weight/mass when you put him in, so tying it snugly gives you the best support.
I prefer the upright, tummy to tummy position over the cradle position -- especially for a small baby like your ds -- it's easier and safer in terms of protecting his airway.
