Kangaroo carry for 2 month old?

I know the kangaroo carry is recommended for 3 mos+ due to the need for head control - but this is the only way my DD will allow herself to be carried. I keep a hand on her at all times and so far (we've only tried it once for about half an hour) she kept her head up really well! I do have her lean back into me a fair bit so that she rests her head against me as much as possible. Is this ok????? TIA!

Yes, I think it is fine. I do the kangaroo carry pretty much from birth, as long as baby's head is supported there shouldn't be a problem at all.

Yep- as in all things, follow your baby and your instincts- and if she is doing fine, she is doing fine!

Ditto.

I actually carried my preemie 2-month-old kangaroo style- at that time he still hadn't made it past his due date! If the baby prefers it and you're extremely attuned to her, no worries.
