How big was your baby when you stopped using the newborn insert? My baby is 7months (so plenty old age wise and has head control...but not ready to sit yet. But she is seriously a shrimp....just over 12 lbs and 24 inches long.

Same with my normal size babies. But she is the size of most 2 month olds, lol. I just went without the insert for the first time today and her eyes barely peak out over the top, lol. Poor thing.

How are you doing? Belly getting big? Those babies will be here before you know it!

My youngest was born 10lb 4oz. I didn't use the ergo until he was a month old, but he wasn't much more in weight. He never fit in the newborn insert so I never used it lol I put a rolled blanket under his bum for a couple of weeks but no more than that
