I've been waiting SOOOO long for my Ergo to come and I want to cry!!
It feels AND looks like ds will fall out if he arched his back?? Is this normal? Could I be too short???

Can you post a picture? Is ds really tall? Do you have it on your hips?
I want to help, the photo would be the easiest way to see if there is something wrong

pics would totally help... but making sure those straps are tight as heck (without cutting any circulation off) will most certainly help... my dd nuzzles up to my back now that we've "trained" each other to use the Ergo properly...

Great- as soon as dh wakes up I'll have him take a pic.
Actually ds is tiny--he's not even on the charts for 15 months for height OR weight!! And I am barely 5'4".
Thanks mamas.

I don't think he will fall out.

Are you trying it on your back?

I have the ergo for my dd who is almost 11 months, but I did put my almost 3 year old in it and he wouldn't have fallen out even if he tried.

My dd always arches her back. I don't have the fear that she will fall out, but it is still annoying! lol

oh you will LOVE your Ergo. give it some time and your ds will love it too. Maybe he is arching back because he is getting a bit sleepy in there and trying to stay awake?

I would love to see a pic then I can give pointers. I do the "hop" when I put dd on my back. When she is in the carrier I hold the straps up off my back and hop or jump a little up and down, this helps settle her into the carrier and get the body closer to under her arms.

This does the trick, especially when she has a fluffier diaper on.

Good luck!

Re: Should I feel like ds will fall out of the Ergo??

I live under a rock....LOL...I haven't been on DS in a while....but when I was introduced to baby wearing I bought a solarviel ring sling. I liked it but found my shoulders throbbing and was generally uncomfortable as well as my DD. Now she couldn't stand to be wore..LOL...but we will be TTC baby #3 soon and I want to get a good carrier. SO I was browsing this section of the board and kept reading a/b Ergo, Ergo, Ergo...LOL...I was like "what in the world is an Ergo???? " so I googled it and found this link. I think I would LOVE the Ergo!!!! Here is the link I found to the instructional videos online. I was thinking maybe they would help you to know if you are wearing and using it correctly. Hope it helps...it sure made me want one!!! LOL!!

It looks like she is secured. I think it may not feel that secure to you becasue the straps dont look that tight. When I gotmy ergo, I always felt like he was going to fall out, I constantly check int eh windows as we shopped.. lmao.. now I feel a little more secure with it..
