So, I have a Kozy and I really do like it. I got some great fabric, and I've mastered the back carry. The thing that is getting me is that the waist straps are digging into me and its really uncomfortable. I wish they had padding as well as the shoulder straps. and, I am finding that I need to constantly tighten and readjust dd because after 10 minutes or so, it feels like she's just hanging off of me and its hurting my back.

From the looks of an Ergo, it appears that the waist straps are more substantial and perhaps I could adjust the carrier overall a bit better. anyone used both who can comment?


oh, and I haven't been able to do a hip carry with the Kozy- can you do that with the Ergo, or can someone give me tips on doing hipcarry with the Kozy?
