Do you use a hip carrier with a soft carrier (besides a sling)? I tried to watch the youtube videos for a hip carry with my Ergo and it felt awkward with my LO in it. Like the strap was right by her face.
My back was out this weekend and she just wanted to be held. In order to get some stuff done around the house I just carried her around in the Ergo and she was happy as could be! Who would have thought a 1 year old who loves to run and play would be happy being carried around by mom! AP Win!
