I've watched the dvd and I'm dead sure my sling is threaded & put on correctly. It's an XL btw, supposedly so my big dh can use it
|The edge of the shoulder cap flap should be your bottom edge of the pouch. Try reachign behind you with your opposite hand and tugging down on the bottom edge near your hip (opposite of sling shoulder).
I am trying to make sense of this, across my back it works OK now, but at what point ought that edge flip up to be the INNER rail of the pouch in, say, a kangaroo carry? Flip up it must, otherwise there's no "cup" to put her in.
The shoulder flap won't go in any position but "all the way in" or "all the way out" and all the way out restricts my right arm terribly and digs into my side at the point where it's flipped up to become the inner rail. Plus, if the edge closest to my neck is up high enough and snug enough to support her weight high on my back, it digs into the side of my neck on the right and my armpit on the left and won't reach up over her head to support it while she sleeps (stopped by my armpit).
Also, when she's in the vertical newborn position, her head *is* on my sternum, but she's long enough that that means her seat, thus where I feel her center of gravity, is just too low. And I still can't get it pulled snug enough without her "running out of room" -- on the side by the rings she's squooshed because the fabric pulls down so sharply, and on her other side the fabric from under my arm wants to cover her face.
And my shoulder's still killing me. Sorry if I sound whiny but I'm about ready to scrap this and get a wraparound so I can just have the weight on both shoulders ... instead of this tugging and bunching s ... er, stuff
