I just got my PIP in the mail the other day and I love it. It's so soft and seems very comfy. But, I can't figure out how DS's feet and legs should be postioned in the tummy to tummy carry.

He's 3 months, and about 12-13 pounds so he's inside the pouch in the tummy carry.

I think his legs should be indian style infront of him, but I can't figure out how to get him in that way. His feet either end up behind him (like he's kneeling or something) or he's in a squat postion in the pouch.

Can anyone advise?

It's a "Pea in a Pod" pouch, made by Mom and Me Creations.

I am actually curious about this too. My DD hated the upright newborn hold (aka: tummy hold, heart-to-heart hold) so I never used it. But I have often wondered. I figure with newborns they are probably most comfortable with their knees up to their chest, fetal style. I would *guess* that, as baby gets older, you could try putting the bottom rail under their knees, and have their knees drawn up to their chest. So they are sort of sitting in it as if it were a hip carry, but the part they sit in is "deeper" so that their knees are up to their chest. I have no idea if that would work IRL, lol.

Ollies legs just went down and to the side following the curve of the pouch at that size when we did tummy to tummy. I would put him in then stick my hand down and pull his legs straight so it was comfy for him.
hope that makes sense
