DD has Down syndrome and shouldn't be carried with her legs spread apart. No hip carrying in the OTSBH. I don't like how her legs are in a snuggli and she is getting tired of tummy carrying in the OTSBH.

Are there any carriers or postitions that would work for a baby like her? She will be one next month but is still very tiny 16-17 pounds and wearing 9 month clothes. I don't think she likes the legs tucked in forward facing postion. She usually fusses. She is also in the reaching grabbing lunging stage so just holding her is wiggly at times.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Christi
