So I have always used a Maya Wrap with my babies, but Molly HATES the Maya Wrap.  I've tried it every which way.  She hates being swaddled too (little breech/oblique monkey).  I don't think she likes being confined.

 

I had an Ergo for DS, but not until he was too heavy for me to carry in the Maya Wrap.

 

Any suggestions?   Ergo with the infant insert?  Is this super-snug?

i love my sling. apparently you don't "need" the infant insert with the ergo... just roll up a blanket to give the baby some lift. i haven't tried it but this iswhat i have been told

I love the comfort and adjustability of a padded ring sling and all three of munchkins have loved it.  I used to have a Dr. Sears Nojo but that got worn out and so now I have a Baby Balboa which I think is its current version and I like it even better.  I am also going to try a Mei Tei this time but haven't yet.

we love our mei tais-we have a free hand and a baby hawk.  i've been using and trying to get the hang of a ring sling in the last couple of weeks.  the sling seems like it might be a little less confining than a wrap maybe...

Some breech baby's are out of spinal alignment and need a chiropractic adjustment to make nursing and baby carriers comfortable. It is called KISS Syndrome.

Here is a link with a bit of an over view.

I am thinking of adding a Becco carrier to my  collection.  I have a Moby wrap and a kangaroo pouch sling (can't remember actual name?).  The sling is super quick/easy, the Moby wrap is nice and distributes weight better then the sling and hugs him in nice and close, he loves both of them.  I am thinking of the Becco or a structured carrier for even better support and for longer holding times.  The Moby wrap fold up pretty small and fits in the diaper bag but something like the Becco distributes the weight sooo much better around my hips and the new version allow carrying facing out too I think. 

 

I have some money on a gift card at a natural baby store and today DH and I are planning to go and try on the Becco and the Ergo (I tried on my friend's version of each and I liked the Becco a litt better).  I want to make sure he likes whichever one I get so that he will use it too.

 

The Becco does not have the legs in the fetal position (even for an infant) I think, maybe your babe would prefer that Lyss?

 

Oh and when trying them on I think the Ergo with the infant insert was snugger then the Becco.

My little oblique -  but not breech baby loves the beco. I have the infant insert and it works well.  He just loves to sleep in it.  I have been thinking of ordering a maya wrap.

OP, have you tried the ring sling with her legs out, instead of froggied?  Legs out is more comfortable for newborns because froggying can put too much pressure on their hips if the angle isn't right.

I agree with this, my DD hated forggying. Also, I got a Beco Gemini which I love for little babies because you can make the bottom narrow and it is very snuggly.
