Tips on reinforcing my sling for back

Hello,


I have an excellent back carrier (Ergo) but in some situations DD wants to see what I am doing, mainly cooking, and she can't see when in her Ergo. I have used my slings as a back sling, I have a Nojo and a ring sling, but she leans out pretty bad even if it is really tight. Does anyone have any tips on what I can do to get her to hold closer to my body when on my back? I almost thought of using something else looped under her armpits and tying her to me, like a scarf or something.


TIA,

Not sure if this is a helpful suggestion, since it would involve another purchase, but have you thought about a frame backpack?

Hmmm...I have a frame backpack I got for free at a garage sale. I will try it and see how comfortable it is...thanks Elizabeth I hadn't thought of that.
