Baby buries her head into my chest

Hi my 6 WO DD loves to nap in my wrap sling but I'm forever moving her head to the side after she buries it in my chest. Any tips? I'm terrified she will stop breathing.

Hiya, Im not going to be much help as mine did this in his ergo carrier, i was constantly rearranging my clothes so the fabric didnt restrict his breathing. What i wanted to say was your dd will 'uncurl' in it and by about 12 weeks it will be an issue and by 5 months you will have forgotten all about it. I was also wondering whether it being summer might help as you wont be wearing a coat?

Apart from that ive got no actual tips except keep checking - and keep going as you'll soon realise that sling wrap is your best purchace

Good luck!

Thanks for your reply. It is brilliant sling as I have a 2 yo too but its mostly because of the 2 yo I panic. I have the pram in one hand, 2 yo holding the other and then no hands to check the baby. I darent leave the pram at home for fear of carrying them both.

Just a few more weeks tho :-)
