The carrier I have found easiest to feed in is a ring sling. At least in the early months I prefer to feed in a more traditional cradle position, and find upright feeds too fiddly. In a ring sling I can move my baby into a cradle position to feed, and then easily shift her back to an upright position once finished.
|Here the baby is in an upright position, with knees spread into a froggy position. I always prefer legs out in a Ring Sling, from day one.|
|carefully loosening the rings, only the top rail needs to be adjusted.|
|Take baby's legs and move them so that they are both out the same side.|
|Here baby is in an 'upright' cradle position, head on the opposite side to the rings.|
|lift up your top to provide access to the breast|
|If you are feeling self conscious, and your baby doesn't mind, you can use the open tail as an extra cover|
|all finished, baby back in a more upright position.|
We'd love to hear from anyone who has fed in a carrier, which carrier you found easiest and when and where you used them.
