Breastfeeding in a ring sling

 I have a ring sling and never mastered nursing in a sling with my other kids. I really would love to be able to nurse in the sling this time.  Does anyone have any tips or ways to put baby in the sling that make it super easy.  My son is 7 weeks old so there really isn't many carries  (that I know of) that I can do at this age.

When Mia was that little, I put her in the sling, folded up her legs like a frog.  She was tummy to tummy. I just latched her on and away we went!! I did use either the tail of the sling or an extra blanket to give myself some extra privacy. Try searching some videos on youtube or even join a baby wearing group here on CM. Nursing in the sling turned out to be a lifesaver for me.

Here is a picture of me nursing my daughter in a ring sling, I believe she was about 2-3 months old. She is very well hidden. When she got older, I would just cover the top of my breast with the tail of the sling.

The tummy-to-tummy hold is great for nursing.  My babies never liked to eat while sitting up, so I nursed in the cradle-carry.  You just have to pull the back rail down enough to get your breast over the top of it.

Youtube has some videos, just put "breastfeeding sling" in the search there and something should come up.

 LOL, no I didn't even think of that.  I guess I still have mommy brain.  Thanks.

It can be done easily in a tummy-to-tummy or cradle hold!
