The link doesn't work for me, but I'm intrigued...

Have you seen the updated user agreement yet?

I bought a wrap when DS2 was around 1, I can't wait to try it with a newborn. Thanks for the link!

to-fu, what happens when you click on it?


i haven't tried feeding with the wrap yet. yesterday i tried feeding with the sling. i tried a football hold first, but my sling is not adjustable and has no give/stretch, so that didn't work. we got a latch in the cradle position but it wasn't hands-free (or discrete, or too comfy for baby), so we have lots more experimenting to do. i should mention that my breasts are ridiculously large - i don't even know my letter size at this point, i just squeeze 'em into stretchy dd nursing bras and pretend they fit. i know different hands free techniques probably vary by body type.

i'd love to hear what others are doing/trying.

here's one for an older baby/side carry:
another one

and some other videos too. i'm obsessed!

poolside, i hear ya... i'm not willing to give up too much couch nursing - just some here and there. i'm starting to think that if i can get some things done while he's eating i won't feel guilty about sleeping when he sleeps.

nak

i'd love to be able to do this, but am also large breasted. please let us know if you find success. you might also find ot works better with a slightly older baby (ie 2 months old or so - you'll notice the baby in the video was prob 4 months old...)
