Need a sling, that I can nurse with too?

I'd like to buy a sling that I can nurse with, but I'm honestly not sure how that would work? I've looked at a couple pictures of them and they look so simple, wouldn't it be just as easy to make one? Any advice or tips on nursing with them?

a ring sling works well when they are young young and an ergo works well when they are a little older for nursing. i can give you directions on how to make one if you want :)

*tips for nursing in a ring sling, adjust it so that the head is right below your shoulder so their isnt as much tension on your back

 BE CAREFUL WITH A SLING i was given a sling and then found out it was RECALLED lots of babies are DYING in them the one i had 3 babies had died in a 3 day old a 3 week old and a few months old babies died they cant streighten out their head and it causes them to not be able to breath a nurse that taught our baby care class told us about this and said the best thing to put them in is a carrier that keeps baby streight and has your and babys heart at the same level and their head just under your chin so you know their head is ok and they are breathing
