I have several slings that I used with my first, as he liked to be hidden from view for the first few months, but the slings being on only one shoulder hurt my back. I'm expecting #2 in may. We also have an ergo, which I used mainly as a backpack and loved loved loved. I'm wondering- does the ergo insert really hold baby snugly? Baby looks so exposed. But I'm thinking I could carry baby more if I had a 2-shoulder way to do it... do any of you have the infant insert, and do you like it? Do your babies like it?

Thanks!

It doesn't hold baby to your chest AT ALL. You could fold up a blanket to do the same thing. I have one I need to get rid of if you really want one

Hmmm. That's what I was afraid of. Is there a sling that is 2-shouldered that itsn't a big long wrap?

You can wear a newborn in a mei tai. Kozy carrier has some good instructions on how to do that: http://www.kozycarrier.homestead.com...tml#anchor_285

We love our infant insert, I mean *LOVE* IT! We put 4 month old dd to sleep in it each night. IT is so easy to get her from the Ergo to our bed. I like it better than a towel because it has a little more structure and doesn't bunch up. But I agree that baby wearing is so personal. It has been great for us, I say give it a try, you may love it too.

The Ergo with newborn insert can get quite warm for the baby. Depending on where you are located, it may not be the best choice

You could also just try baby tummy to tummy with legs froggied inside the Ergo. I helped a mama with her 2 week old and, with a small, folded blanket to take some of the extra space, baby looked great and went right to sleep.
