My first son hated it for the first 5-6 weeks but really bad the first 3-4. I had a pouch and no matter what he hated it. Do you have a local Babywearing group? Maybe they could help you hands on or perhaps lend you a ring sling if you don't have one-they're my favorite with newborns (way better than a pouch in my personal opinion but I'm not a big pouch fan). I just helped a mama with a 2 week old in one and I really feel like ring slings are an easy way to replicate the exact way you hold them in your arms when they're newborns. Make sure to keep the carrier tight and keep baby kissable-the newborn I helped in my group was up close to the bottom of her mama's cheek so it was very easy to kiss the top of her head.
