baby wearing

I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a great sling for baby wearing for a breastfeeding mama.  Number two is on its way and I really want to baby wear a lot and breastfeed - all while chasing after my dd.  :)  I know it's not really a breastfeeding question - but I figured you mamas would have some good suggestions.

Maya wrap, moby wrap, ring sling... all good choices.

The moby wrap! I love it! I also have a baby bijorn and a hip sling. Just watch the videos and decide which one you would be able to do with no problem. I can put LO in the moby and chase after a 3 yr old and a 5 yr old

I have a baby bjorn but it hurts my back once the baby starts to get heavy.  I'll def look into the moby wrap and the hip sling!

We love our babyette ring sling and boba. We also have a mei tai style and woven wrap.
Be careful of the crotch dangler style(bjorn-ish) theyre not good for baby or wearers

Moby wrap and Ergo carrier allow you to carry while BF hands free discreetly. I also have a baby bjorn but there is debate about it affecting the babys hip alignment which may in turn affect walking. My first born is fine after basically living in the bjorn his first year and he was delayed in walking but also preterm. The bjorn doesn't allow BF or not that I was able to figure out.

Just curious- do you still like your Beco?

I loved my mei tai. I didn't get it until 6 months, so I'm not sure how well it would work with a newborn.

I love my moby. But I've heard that the k'tan is just like the moby but easier.

I've also hear that ring slings are best for nursing
