I absolutely my Hotslings pouch. However, after wearing it for a longer period of time (say through the grocery store) it begins to bunch up and dig into my neck. Is there a trick to keeping it on straight? I'm wondering if part of the problem is that I wear it with a winter coat, that somehow the coat messes with it? Opinions? Advice? Please Share!

Thanks!

Hmm... it shouldn't be on your neck at all. Are you starting out with it on your shoulder and it is traveling up to your neck? I can't stand to babywear in a coat, it makes me claustrophobic so I won't be any help there, lol. I would say maybe try to do the shoulder flip so it is more snug on your shoulder.

I second the shoulder flip idea

if I have it secure over the curve of my shoulder, it keeps the fabric from traveling up to my neck.

thanks gals. i'll try the shoulder flip, I think I've figured it out (finally , it took me awile). I do start out with it spread over my shoulder, but it begins to creep up and migrate toward my neck eventually. I think the shoulder flip will help keep it in place more, and if I don't do the flip, I'll try to be more mindful of where I start out with it. I like the suggestion to make sure its nicely over the shoulder before putting the babe in it.
