im new to babywearing and using a wrap. so far i have put my dd (2 mo) in the "hug hold" as moby calls it but there is no support for her head and i end up holding her head until she falls asleep and i can tuck it under one of the shoulder straps. she hates having her head covered while she is awake. how can i wrap her so her head will be supported?

Hmmm, can you slide her down in there so that the intersection of the crossing fabric supports her neck? Or just put the cross slightly over the back of her head to give her support without covering it up totally?

I've never known many babies that like their heads covered while they are awake. I used to just hold baby's head with my hand when she got groggy but wasn't quite asleep, and the pop it in the fabric when I was good sure she was out. Too soon and she was back up.
