DD is going on 10 weeks but is almost 15 pounds w/ good head control (but not total). she also likes to look around a lot and hates anything resembling cradle hold, which is what the infant position looks like with both legs out one side. i just can't see her going for that. can we go w/o even though the insert is recommended until 4 months?
You can also try: a) putting her in with both legs froggy-style, so she's facing you, and/or b) putting her in with one leg froggied (tucked up under her) and the other sticking out the side, again facing you. (Although you CAN do a cheat and put her in facing out, I don't think it's what the Ergo is designed for/good at).
