my hotsling worked for this, but it took a little adjusting my boob to get the right angle <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> but once he latched, i was ready to start chasing my three year old.

For nursing a little one in, an adjustable ring sling (like the maya wrap) is much easier to use... You can lower or raise the level until it is *just right* and then tighten it like the dickens... you just can't get that absolute perfection with a pouch... :LOL

Another Mama in <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> with the Maya wrap! So adjustable and comfy.<br><br>
Later on, once they are able to *ahem* "arrange things" as they like, the Moby is great.

I bought my maya wrap when I saw a mama at a LLL conference tuck her overwhelmed babe into one, latch her on, and flip the tail over the babe, giving her baby an instant safe comfy cocoon. We're now on the second maya wrapprd baby, and I love it!

I use my kangaroo Korner pouch to nurse on the go, it's nice to be able to nurse and get my shopping done at the same time <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

For a newborn I am all for the unpadded ring sling (Maya wrap). I like my mei tei now that she is older and likes to sit and straddle my front for nursing

i love my mei tai for nursing on the go. sometimes i am only one handed while i hold my breast, but thats okay. ring slings also work wonders for nursing on the go. they are so great in the fact that you can position them exactly where you need them. i need to make a new one, i gave my old one away!!
