my almost five month old daughter likes facing out--i have a mei tei and a pouch but she doesn't really like her legs being smooshed up into her belly.<br><br>
i don't know of any other options for facing her out--any ideas for me?<br><br>
TIA!

you could do a forward facing carry in a wrap, like in this pic - <a href="http://www.strainstation.com/albums/babywearing/moby5.jpg" target="_blank">http://www.strainstation.com/albums/...ring/moby5.jpg</a> - my dd is 4 months there. however you could also try a back carry, if she's not big enough she will be soon, and that way they are still facing the same way and see everything you see <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Have you heard of the frog-legged version? This is where they are underneath them instead of in front, and it works better for your center of gravity as well.

Yeah, basically. If you just hold her feet and tuck them underneath her her, and let her knees fall out to the sides. As with any new positions or carriers, it is always a good idea to use some distraction such as a walk right away.

we love the wrap. dd2 is 20 lbs and I feel comfortble in it for long periods of time. I use a stretchy wrap. rather than have it bunched up under her crotch, I pull the "loops" so they are under her thighs, like sitting on a chair.

My dd2 is about 20lbs also and I love(d) my stretchy wrap but the bigger she gets the more I find myself wanting to try a woven or less stretchy wrap because I feel like her weight is pulling down on me. Can you post a pic of how you wear your dd, maybe I need to try a different way. What kind of wrap do you have? have you tried a woven?
