Hi so I treated myself to a caboo sling for ds2, had previously used baby bjorn with ds1. Anyway the other day I went to pick my toddler up from nursery wearing the caboo and as I leaned forward to help him put his jacket on ds2's head fell forward. This was despite me having his head covered by the material. He was in the upright position and is 4 weeks old.
Any advice? Did I not have it on correctly? Not tight enough? Although I thought it seemed tight...
The next day I wore the baby bjorn again as felt it supported his head better when I had to lean forward to help toddler (who was having a tantrum!)!

I really want to use the caboo so any advice appreciated! Thanks

Not a huge amount of help I'm afraid but I wouldn't/couldn't lean forwards using mine without putting a supporting hand behind DS' head.

I've just started using a Caboo today - from reading the instructions, my understanding is that if leaning forward you do need to give LO's head a little bit of extra support with your hand. I guess that's not a problem if you only have the one LO but possibly more difficult if you need two hands free to deal with your other DC!

needs to be tighter than you think, but make sure baby can breathe obvs smile

it was hit and miss when I used it, sometimes it felt great, others I got in a right faff.
