<p>Hi! I'm just learning to babywear with my 2wo and I'm wondering what kind of clothing you use to nurse with a baby carrier? It doesn't seem like you can just pull your shirt up, so how do you do it? I have a moby, an ergo and a ring sling.</p>

Congrats on the new babe!<br><br>
It definitely takes some experimenting... The first few weeks I just wore a nursing bra or tank and the moby when I was home. Or put a large zip up sweatshirt or something on over to go for a walk. Then as she got older, I wore a deep V-neck and pulled my boob out the top while in the moby.<br><br>
I didn't get an ergo until dd was older but also can only nurse in t by pulling down a low cut shirt...<br><br>
Looking forward to hearing from others!

<p> I either wear a lower cut top or a button up shirt. I find it easier than pulling your shirt up anyways. Probably not great for the shirt, but oh well!</p>

<p>I often wear ruched shirts with a cardigan on top. That way I can half button the cardy on top and pull down the ruched top. Basically anything you can pull down or un-button and flop a booby out of is great for nursing on the go ;o</p>

<p>As some previous posters already mentioned, a v-neck or scoop neck shirt works well so you can just pull it down a bit over one breast.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Sometimes I will wear two layers and fold one layer up prior to putting the baby carrier on if I suspect DS will be due for a feeding.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Button ups work well too.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Nothing beats nursing in a baby carrier when you're out and about, so very practical!</p>

<p>My babywearing 'uniform' these days is a nursing camisole (I prefer the 'side' sling, not the 'full' sling) with a wrap or cardigan sweater over it. You could throw on a long, wide lightweight scarf to offer privacy while nursing in public if you would like also.</p>

<p>Yeah this!  I like to flop the booby out the top and then cover with a little scarf or my hand.  It was just easier than trying to pull my shirt up if she's wedged in there.<br>

<p>I like the v necked t shirts from Old Navy. It does take practice though to nurse in any carrier I think. I've only done this a few times in public and once I really had a hard time b/c he wasn't in the right position. I need to Google a nursing position for the Moby and see what I can try.</p>
