Hi! I'm just learning to babywear with my 2wo and I'm wondering what kind of clothing you use to nurse with a baby carrier? It doesn't seem like you can just pull your shirt up, so how do you do it? I have a moby, an ergo and a ring sling.

breastfeeding with a carrierpost #1 of 811/10/10 at 9:57pmThread Starterpost #2 of 811/10/10 at 10:09pmCongrats on the new babe!
It definitely takes some experimenting... The first few weeks I just wore a nursing bra or tank and the moby when I was home. Or put a large zip up sweatshirt or something on over to go for a walk. Then as she got older, I wore a deep V-neck and pulled my boob out the top while in the moby.
I didn't get an ergo until dd was older but also can only nurse in t by pulling down a low cut shirt...
Looking forward to hearing from others!post #3 of 811/11/10 at 2:44ampost #4 of 811/11/10 at 6:33ampost #5 of 811/17/10 at 7:23am
As some previous posters already mentioned, a v-neck or scoop neck shirt works well so you can just pull it down a bit over one breast.
Sometimes I will wear two layers and fold one layer up prior to putting the baby carrier on if I suspect DS will be due for a feeding.
Button ups work well too.
Nothing beats nursing in a baby carrier when you're out and about, so very practical!post #6 of 811/17/10 at 2:39pmpost #7 of 811/17/10 at 4:07pm
Yeah this! I like to flop the booby out the top and then cover with a little scarf or my hand. It was just easier than trying to pull my shirt up if she's wedged in there.

I like the v necked t shirts from Old Navy. It does take practice though to nurse in any carrier I think. I've only done this a few times in public and once I really had a hard time b/c he wasn't in the right position. I need to Google a nursing position for the Moby and see what I can try.
