What should I do to keep the shoulder straps on my shoulders?  It makes me feel a little nervous that they often slide off and baby will too...  Should I make any adjustments?  I notice that my back-strap is across the middle of my shoulder blades, whereas I have seen other mamas wear it across top of shoulder blades.

Hi there,

I'm guessing you have your baby in front?  I would suggest a couple of things to try. 

1) Try to move your "chest" strap higher up on your back.  I have mine near the base of my neck actually (partly because I can't reach, lol)

2) Try to tighten the chest strap shorter so shoulder straps are closer to one another

3) Try to shorten the shoulder straps so baby is snug against you

Good luck!
