I know it is supposed to be possible, by I can't picture how to breastfeed in a carrier of that style. My DS is 10, so it has been a while, but I think we only breastfed in ring/pouch slings. Is it tricky to maneuver and adjust the mom's clothing and such? Thanks in advance!

I nursed in my ergo all the time. I always wore clothing that was easy to nurse in. I also wore a regular bra instead of a nursing bra. I just loosened the straps on the ergo to lower baby and pulled my boob out of the top of my bra. It was easy and she could nurse comfortably wherever we were. Ergo has a video tutorial that was helpful.
Great idea about the straps! The bra part reminded me that it also depends on your milk supply. For the first 18 months of nursing I leaked huge amounts of milk from the other breast and the one being nursed if he pulled off (which he often did due to strangling during let down). I had to keep a cloth diaper handy at all times and nursing in the carrier did not work too well for me. We would both end up covered in milk and the carrier to boot.
