i'm having trouble getting my 3 week old into our hotsling comfortably. (She weighs between 6 & 7 pounds.) I can get her in so her bottom is resting on the seam, with her legs crossed/squished <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> ... but her face is completely covered by the top of the pouch. She hates it... really just wants to be on my shoulder instead.<br><br>
Is there any way to get her head to a more 'open' spot so she can see out? Or is there a better position to try?<br><br>
Thanks for any suggestions you can give.

Yep, the receiving blanket should work, you can also try shifting the sling so that the middle seam is a little closer to your shoulder, making her more upright. I am sure their cs people can walk you through it if that does not help. It is easier to walk through than to write through, if you know what I mean<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
