One of the great things about my Mei Tai was how easily I was able to Breastfeed in it. The week after it arrived we went to see the penguin parade at Phillip Island and K fed through the whole thing, snug and warm in the Mei Tai. And nobody knew what was going on.
I don't have actual photos of me feeding in a Mei Tai, but I've taken some today using N's baby doll (Noki has gone for a walk in the garden, will hopefully find him tomorrow). Baby is slightly smaller than a newborn, so please imagine this scenario with a larger child in the mei tai.
|Baby on front, head high up above breast height (kissing position)|
|loosening the shoulder straps and wriggling baby to sit lower|
|helping baby to adjust, and latch|
|Happily attached and sucking loudly (may not be visible but my children are audible)|
|Readjusted back to a kissable height, mei tai re-tied |
If you have Photos or questions, we'd love to hear from you. please comment below or email.
