At 5 weeks you can try the Tibetan back tie (with a stretchy wrap bring the cloth all the way under her feet like a little bag), cradle holds of various sorts, and a sideways reclining position, also a mamababy-type burp position.

You may just have her centered so that you are holding your neck at an awkward angle, try moving her to the left or right a bit. She should be wherever you would naturally hold her in-arms when you are finished tying your wrap.
