Thanks so much for your reply. The warmth with with you reply always feels so good to me. You were right. She feels restricted in the peapod (at this point) but loves the heart to heart. I was so happy when i tried it and she went in without any problem at all. I enjoy wearing the hug-a-bub over the other 2 slings i got as gifts so i am glad that Nikita is beginning to accept it as well... Thanks again, all the best,
