his legs seem so crammed in that hold, unless I'm doing it wrong which is a big possibilitly. He's too little yet for the regular hug hold that can let his legs dangle right?

If he isn't uncomfortable, then I wouldn't worry about it! Little ones like to be squished. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
That being said, there's no rule about what age is good for having legs out. Just make sure that his knees are above his bum and that he is sitting in the carrier not just having his legs dangle from the crotch.

Yep to all of the above! If he's happy, squish 'im! LOL.<br>
Mine did start liking legs out at times from abotu 4 weeks I think in the moby, so you can try that too if he seems to like it better.

Mine seemed to really like being squished up. Babies are weird - just go with what works.

I never liked the newborn hug hold and neither did my baby. I always put her in the regular hug hold and she did just fine. Have fun! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

All of my boys always liked their legs out and would not really tolerate being squished in but if your baby is happy I would not worry. Babies are REALLY good at letting you know when they are not comfortable!

My daughter gets ANGRY when her feet get too warm so we have been leaving her feet out of the Moby since about 2 1/2 weeks. It helps that she is pretty big in general so don't worry about her sturdiness. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
