Star by determining how the baby prefers to be held in the arm, then mimic the same position with the carrier. This is a major advantage of unstructured carriers is that they can be adjusted to satisfy even the fussiest of babies.

Positioning in a baby in the carrier looks tricky and is a bit of a learning curve. Just keep calm. Take a break and try again later when you and your baby are well rested. Practice, start with short durations and soon will be a pro.
