I have the reversible version of the <a href="http://www.comfyjoey.com/index.php" target="_blank">Comfy Joey</a>, does anyone else? I love the stretchy light-weight material, the price, and the colors, but I haven't mastered wearing my two-week old 8ish pound baby. It seems very snug, which is what I hear it is supposed to be. Today I thought I had it right but he kept slipping back down and eventually his feet were sticking out and he looked very uncomfy . . .<br><br>
I had help with the sizing, so I think that is right . . .<br><br>
Any tips?

you are very blessed to be living near a great NINO group who would give you in-person help with your fitted pouch. Fitted pouches are tough, imo, for newborns because mom's weigh and body shape changes so dramatically as does baby's and so a really good fit is sometimes hard to get. If you have a copy of the Mothering magazine babywearing issue they go over a lot of troubleshooting for newborns in slings. Otherwise, you could just try contacting Aiesha for help.

Thanks gool0005 - I'll try the NINO group and I'll look again at the Mothering issue re: babywearing. I think it will definitely take some more practice!<br><br>
Aiesha was great about sizing me - and I'm sure she would be a big help getting this to work . . .<br><br>
Thanks again!

I think I've got it!<br><br>
Shea has been sleeping in the CJ for over an hour now. I wasn't so sure at first since he was grunting . . . growling . . . purring . . .<br><br>
Now he's sleeping like a baby! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Does anyone's DC purr when they put them in pouch? How bizarre . . .
