I saw the thread on nursing for larger busted mommas and thought I would ask -- for those of you who fit in this category, what type of carrier do you prefer?

I have used an OTSBH and sold it, a maya wrap (and struggled with it too), and a baby bjorn. I'm in the market for a new carrier of ANY kind and would love recommendations - any thoughts? My ds is 9 mo, 22 lbs and 30 in - and i'm a size H cup but mostly normal sized other than my bust. Can you help?

Thanks!

this probably isn't much help, but my sling is the one from motherwear. i bought a larger size, XL i think, to allow room for the "girls". now that ds is bigger, i use it on my back alot, but that doesn't help with nursing. i've used my friends maya wrap, and loved it. had i tried it before the sling-EZ, i would have gotten one instead. i use a frame backpack, too. and i don't like the snugli-type mutiple strappy things, although my best friend, who is an A cup after nursing 3 kids(two into toddlerhood) loves hers, and thinks my sling is "dorky" looking. to sum up: i can't live without my sling.

I'm large busted (H cup) and have many kinds of slings. My favorite is the KKAFP and KKACP. I like the simplicity and lack of rings to worry about.

That said, I was never very good at nursing in the sling and only got good at doing it with DS in the hip carry and basically my entire breast exposed.
