when they are alseep and I am going nuts! I had some lady come up to me in the grocery store today and lecture me about how if my 5mo was passed out I would simply think she was lseeping! Aughhhhhhh! OK - rant over. Kiera used to lean her hed on me while she slept as a baby but now the Kozy doesn't suport her head...Her 5mo sister is almost her size (!!!) so she is having the same problem - she has never leaned her head on my back but instead looks around taking in the sights and sounds so when she conks out her head hangs straight back; hence the crazy ladies at the store who read me the riot act when I go shopping. How can I remedy this? I try to put them deep in the carrier and it is comfy but there is just no head support...

I have heard a rolled up receiving blanket will do the trick; I havent tried it because my ds always leans into me so its not a problem but there's pics on the kozy carrier websites in their instruction section . HTH!

That problem is why I really prefer the MTs with a folding head rest--<a href="http://www.babyhawk.com/" target="_blank">Babyhawk</a> has one that folds down when they're awake and then you can pop it up when they fall asleep and the head starts to flop.

What are the dimension on the BH headrest? I thought I read somewhere that with the headrest up, it was the same height as the Kozy. I could be wrong though. I had a BH XT and that was the same height as my Kozy and I thought the headrest was the same height as the XT.

You can get a toddlerhawk version now, which is toddler size plus the sleeping headrest. Much taller than the baby version.

I like untying, bouncing the straps tighter, and retying the Kozy on my back to help prevent head flop. If you get your child lower down in there, it should help. My dd would always conk out deeply enough that she didn't wake up during the maneuvers.

I also do this, but before I retie, I bend over so that dd is laying on my back and "has to" lean into me. I also try and bring her arms inside the carrier so that I can get it tighter.

Actually I have a head/back support which snaps into the Peppermint Onbuhimo I bought when Ibi was 3 weeks which ive lightly sewed into the MT for head support, so when he passes out alseep he has the support. I know its not much help but maybe putting some sorta support in there...<br><br>

I'm trying to figure out how I would ever fold a blanket and put it behind her head while on my back <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I like my babyhawk better than Kozy. Something about the way it is shaped and the top is much thicker so it sort of mold to a head if that makes sense. I need to get the toddler one. I was really dissapointed that mine is already too short for DD to sleep. I have to put her so low she'd fall out the bottom to have it cover her head. And she is a pretty small 1 year old!
