Tip Tuesday- Nursing in a Carrier

By KSC

To wrap up World Breastfeeding Week, I thought today’s tip should show one of the ways to make breastfeeding easier while babywearing.  I am using our lending library’s Girasol in a size 2 in a rebozo carry.  I really like wearing a tank top under my shirt to provide belly coverage when using a ring sling or rebozo carry when you don’t have as much coverage from the carrier itself.

Before putting on the carrier I pull up my outer t-shirt.
 T-shirt now in position for nursing.
Next I would put on my carrier.  Put baby in a bit lower than normal to the right height for nursing in the upright position.
I can then pull down on my tank top or unclip it if it is one made for nursing.
Now I am in the nursing position with nipple fully exposed but plenty of coverage.  You can also use a button down shirt, one that crosses in the front for the same coverage.
