Most carries should be independently secure, so you don't have to hold the baby or keep an eye so they don't pop out. If the carry is done correctly, they won't pop out.

As far as I can tell her knees look slightly higher than her bum, so I think she's got a good seat. The question is, was it comfortable? If so, then I think you're good.
