Public Feedings: babies in carriers, wraps and slings
I noticed with my experience that I had to drop the back support straps a bit lower in order for Gianna's mouth to meet the boob. It did take a bit of adjusting to find the best compatible fit. The first time I did, I did go to the bathroom to do it. This was a mall bathroom, and there was actually a 'mother's' stall, but it was still gross, so I tried to get everything situated as quickly as possible. I put a large receiving blanket over my babe and the carrier, and I really don't think anyone noticed.
I was very nervous, because that was the first time I had ever breastfed anywhere outside of my home, or the homes of friends and relatives. I don't anybody realized that I was feeding her underneath that blanket! I think this experience gave me the confidence to pump in public, because I knew I could do it discreetly.
I only have the BabyBjorn carrier, but I have seen other carriers, some made specifically for breastfeeding. Has anyone on here used the LilaBean? I had wanted to get one, but never got around to it. It's more of a cover than a carrier, though. I don't know if any of the wraps (slings) would be easier, since I haven't gotten around to getting one yet.
Anybody else have any suggestions?
