Hello...I'm a newbie here but I've lurked a little while ! I have a nojo sling that has been working pretty well but now my DD is 6 mos old and I would love to have a back carrier. I have *no* spare cash and was wondering if she is too young to do the back safety carry with the nojo?? THe hip carry works pretty well.
TIA!
Peace,
Beth, mama to baby Miriam

Just my opinion, but I wouldn't. I had the Nojo sling at one time, but returned it. It was too loose. I don't know how it fits on you, but I think that 6 weeks is too young for the back carry. They're so tiny and fragile at that age- I would wait until she's older.

Congrats on your new baby!

Just noticed from your reply, lisabc311, you said the baby was 6 weeks. Mamabeth's baby is 6 months.

I also had trouble with my NoJo but that was way back when my first was a newborn. I am quite petite, at 5'1", and the NoJo was too big for my frame.

Mamabeth, check out the website for the Maya Wrap (www.mayawrap.com, not sure). It has a video with the various positions and, even though it's not a NoJo, it may help you decide what to do and how to make a position work for you. Also, check if there is a NoJo website with the same info.

Best of luck!

Thanks. Actually, I don't think it will work either as I've tried it bc it really is too loose--my DD is petite anyway. Oh well! But the mayawrap site is very helpful.
So I am saving my pennies for an Ergo!
Peace,
Beth
