Evenflo

I have an Evenflo Snugli that was given to me. Model no. 0761408a. I haven't tried it yet but was wondering if this type is safe for a 6 week old? I don't know much about it or who to ask. Google wasn't much help! TIA!

Looks like all snugli's are good from 7lbs? Is there a warning label on it that tells you anything? (all my carriers have one, but I'm assuming they're slightly newer)

Facing forward on the front till they can hold their head up by themselves is of course standard practice if it's an optional outward facing carrier.

I can't find a pic of your specific model online (or at least reliably lol), but if you're concerned about proper support for babe (support from knee to knee) and that model's crotch is narrow (looks like newer snuglis are wider than old ones) you can use the 'scarf trick' to fix that without buying a new carrier. http://www.fineandfairblog.com/2013/...carf-hack.html

Hope any of that helps!

Probably fine, but not comfy for you or baby. Definite use the scarf trick to help both of you

Thanks! I finally found the instruction booklet and a friend had sent me the scarf trick so we are going to try it out just to see! Thanks for your help.
