hi mamas! i was hoping for a little babywearing help here since all i've used before is the hotsling, and my 3 week old has suddenly decided that he hates it, and will no longer tolerate being in it for more than 2 minutes. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:<br>
i have a mei-tai which i think he would feel more comfortable in (he likes being carried that way in arms), but i can't figure out exactly how ds's legs should be positioned?? i feel like i'm squishing his little legs when i put him in. any advice would be so appreciated!!

I have a 1 month old who HATES to be carried in either my hotsling or snuggli. Looking for other suggestions about other ways to wear a tiny one.

Keep in mind that dc has been squished for the last 9 mos<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
But seriously, he can go in either froggy leg style or cross-legged (bhudda-style). Read <a href="http://www.storchenwiege.com/babycarrierresearch.htm" target="_blank">here</a> about leg positioning.

When I would put my ds in the mei tai when he was really little I would put his legs in froggy style all tucked in. The other thing I would do (because he liked it) was to swaddle him in a blanket and then put him in that way. He tucked his legs in froggy style naturally in the swaddle so that worked out.<br>

Have you tried different positions in the hotsling? My kids hated cradle hold, but liked sitting up.
