View Full Version : I need help with positioing in my KKAFP & KKACP

I have both the KKAFP & KKACP. My DD has used one since birth. SHe is now 3 months and getting too curious and too big for tummy to tummy. I just can't seem to figure out any of the other positions. I have read and reread the instructions for different positions. Whenever I try though DD seems so awkward, uncomfortable and usually cries. Does any one live around Rancho CUcamonga or even the San fernando valley that can show me how to do the different positions? I feel pretty silly that I can't figure it out. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you!

If she has good head control you can do forward facing. This was my DS's favorite position until he was about 7 months. Face your DD out, cross her legs buddha style, and lower her into the pouch. Make sure the fabric in back is high enough so she is nice and secure. At this age she will probably want her whole body in with just her head poking out. As she gets older she'll want her arms out and may like to hold onto the fabric in front.
Does that make sense? LMK if you have more questions. Wish I was there to help!

I agree with Angie -- the outward facing "Kangaroo Carry" was my DD's favorite position around 3-5 months (and afterwards, we switched to Hip carry, in which she is still comfortable at 9 mos and 22 lbs). It may feel strange getting her in there (do the "buddha" leg cross before getting her in the pouch) but once she's in, she should be snug and happy. Try arms out or in and move around -- see what she likes. Good luck!!!

OK, so how do you do this by yourself. I guess I am just really uncoordinated. I can't seem to get her in the position and then put her in. She moves or I lose the hold on her as I try to open the pouch. Thank you for the help.

I'm in the SFV, but we're still using tummy to tummy at 7 months. DS never seemed to like the front/buddha carry.
