and I am KICKING myself for not getting it when she was born. I bought the over the shoulder baby holder because it was the only one I could get in town without ordering over the internet. I hated it and NEVER figured it out until she was able to ride on my hip and even then it was aweful trying to figure it out. So, I bought the maya this morning from our LLL leader and she slid right in, was secure, comfy, my back didn't hurt and the rings weren't digging into my shoulder. I practiced with one of her dolls to see what would have been if i'd had it when she was born and it felt perfect.
