We just bought an ergo to use with our 6 month old. He's generally happy in it both in a front carry and a back carry, but the shoulder straps and top of the back edge hit him right at cheek level. After riding in it for even just a few minutes, his cheeks are red and irritated. is there a better way to sit him in it so he rides a little higher? Has anyone else had this problem? Thanks!

When my guy was smaller, I used to take a rolled up receiving blanket and place it in the bottom of the ergo, to create a little seat for him.

That's a good idea. I'll give it a try!
