How big are we talking? I am around a 40 J by the time my milk comes in. I still was able to use a Ring Sling with DD. I just snuggled her up to my breast and tightened it up. I also didn't wear super supportive bras so they kind of... umm.. hung down. Then I would wedge DD between them or on them. Worked for us. I plan on getting a moby this time. I don't see my chest getting into the way with that either... if need be, baby will ride on top of the breasts!
OK, I want to practice attachment parenting, but my breasts are huge. I expect they will even grow a bit more when baby comes and my milk comes in. I'm not sure how this is supposed to work... I can't move my arms in front of me even when I'm not wearing a baby, unless I have my elbows way out to the side like chicken-wings. But babies can't be worn on the back until their necks can support their heads, right? And wearing on the back isn't as good for their mental stimulation, right?
Are there any front carriers out there that are somehow better for this? Or am I going to be a baby-bucket kind of mom for lack of other options? All the carriers I've seen are pretty much unisex and designed for baby to lay against a flat chest, but my chest is anything but flat. I'm hopeful someone out there with personal experience can chime in with a brand or style that works well.
I was a 40J when I got pregnant and I'm way spilling over the top now at the beginning of second trimester. Doesn't it hurt to have the baby's weight on your breasts?
