Your hips should be 10cm above your knees. I rocked lightly on mine and bounced a little. Generally just found it more comfortable when sitting in later pregnancy. This video explains how.

keep it when DC comes as a quick bounce on mine ALWAYS stops DD crying and she's 8 weeks now- it has been a life saver
