    Help Sling users help!

    Advertisements
    I just got my first sling in the mail and I can't get it to work right. I put the little guy in it and it looked like he was being smothered! And his little neck was smooshed. I'm really worried about him not being able to breathe. I tried to prop his back up, to tilt his head back a bit, but it didn't work. Any suggestions? I have a New Native pouch sling and the little guy is about 8lbs.
    TIA!!!

    as long as your little one's chin isn't smooshed down on his chest and he's comfy don't worry about it. you could also take a receiving blanket and tuck it in there to prop him up a bit more
