i had not heard of the ergo carrier, so i checked out the website. it looks like a great product, very comfy and secure. i can get ds into the sling on my back, but worry about him falling out the bottom. my suggestion is to insert the child, then sit said child on the sofa, up against the back. sit in front and slide your arms into the straps, the stand. of course, someone who's used the carrier may have a better idea. the website mentioned an insructional video which probably shows just how to do it. side point...the picture of the nursing child was cute, but how many of us are to saggy to do it that way?!lol.
