I am a complete novice babywearer and recently bought this carrier to try out with our second son since it seemed like an affordable option to see if baby wearing may be for us. On the box, the recommended minimum weight is 8 pounds. Since my newborn (2 days old) is 7 pounds 1 ounce at the moment and may lose a bit more before he starts regaining weight, I wondered if there are any simple adjustments that could be made to how the carrier is worn (for example, rolling the waist band) that may make it appropriate/safe to use at his current weight? My only concern with waiting to use the carrier is that by the time he's gained enough to meet the minimum recommendation, I may be set into a routine that works for us and less likely to try it out. Thanks.
