Large chested & baby wearing

Is it possible to baby wear while extremely large chested? I'll be G cup+ after my milk comes in. I won't use a wrap like the Moby since I don't like it (previous experience). I'm thinking along the lines of a ring sling and/or Ergo. I don't want to waste money if my chest is going to cause issues.

I'm very large chested and never had problems wearing my babies. With the first I had a bejorn and the second a Ergo. Large breasts just make better pillows. :)

I'm an F and have never hadproblems baby wearing. I've used a Moby, Baby Hawk, ring sling. I can't nurse hands-free in any carrier but am able to nurse one-handed in them.

It won't keep you from being able to wear baby, but you wil definitely want to try different carriers to find out what is most comfortable for you.

I've found my favorite to be a mei tai. We have babyhawks right now, but if I were to get another, it would probably be a Kozy carrier to support the mama who started it all. She's local to me too.

I do have a Moby and really like how it distributes baby's weight, but it just doesn't work as well for me personally. I guess I'm too particular about wrapping it, so it's not a quick or easy process for me. I also always feel like I look huge and fat wearing baby (stupid thing to care about I know, but when you're already bigger and have huge boobs on top of that, it doesn't help anything, lol).

So, yeah, just try whatever you can get your hands on and see what you like. :) You'll probably find you prefer different styles for different situations. I like ring/pouch slings for quick on and off/in and out situations and my mei tai for longer wear such as going grocery shopping. My moby was most comfy taking long walks outside because I felt very supported and comfortable.

I was a DD before we conceived our first kid! I use a homemade Moby up to fifteen pounds, then I switch over to a Mei Tai that I made. It has wide, padded shoulder straps. It works great!

Awesome! I feel much more confident now. I'm now realizing I didn't position my ds correctly and with a bad back positioning is everything!
