Physiologically, babies develop so that their placement looks different at different ages and stages. Generally, we would recommend wearing your baby in a deep squat with knees above bottom, and with baby's weight resting in the hammock of the sling. Keep in mind that red lines on baby's legs don't always mean that baby is uncomfortable - they can be similar to the marks left on your face by your pillow. That said, pay close attention to ensuring that baby has adequate circulation, an open airway, and is always visible and kissable.
