i had to ditch the maya altogether and get their mamababy sling - the one that's jersey knit - sooooo much better. i can do fine in that one or the kangaroo carrier, but i do still have to hold the boob b/c it's just too soft and flops out of his mouth or smothers him. i could not get any position with the reg. maya - thought i was defective. sling nursing DOES rock now, because i can walk around and still have one hand free, anyway.
