    I bf in the sling, but was very unfomfortable doing so out in public. My body just wasnt made for a sling.
    We wont buy, while cats and dogs die.
    Save a life...get a shelter animal.


    YUM...

    I didn't BF in my sling, my BBs were too big.

    I always wear a tank under my tees and then just have to pull up my top tee to feed Zoe. She doesn't nurse much in public anymore but that's what I did when she was younger.

    with big tatas its hard...at least for me and my DD giants. i unwrap my moby, take her out, then use the "flaps" to cover up. i also usually wear a zip up hoodie when out (at least this fall and now i have) so that i can cover one side of the tata and feed her.

    Well, then I doubt I can BF in a sling too lol I am already about to pop out a D cup so these girls keep getitng bigger and bigger.
    What does everyone recommend when BFing? Just a nursing bra and blanket? Is there a way to BF without showing off my tatas as big as they are
    I really want to try this since Jer had so much tummy issues with formula I want to do it right you know? I am sooo scared though but so determined.

    It's pretty easy to BF is a Maya wrap (sling) and it has a "tail" so that you can cover up when BFing. I have big boobs too and did not have a problem with this wrap. I also bought this black cover at Target, kinda looks like a poncho. That was nice too. The maya wrap was a little easier though because it completely supports baby, hands free, and if you wear it correctly, it will not hurt your back. PM me if you wanna know more about this wrap. It was the best thing I bought for my baby! By the way, you can use it up to 100lbs.

    Thank you, BrentsCrystal! You are amazing!

    Sylas lived in his RS during the day BF'ing while I did laundry, dishes, vacuuming, truck shopping, grocery shopping, etc. He still at 17 months loves his cling, especially when he is tired.

    my best advice to you, cor.... don't overthink it.... when the baby gets here, just go with the flow... see a lactation consultant....etc etc.... thinking too much about it now might just build up unnecessary fear and questions.... when it happens, it will make more sense!

    although I did over think it. 3 kids and I couldn't get the hang of it. Always gave up within a week with each, have DD's and inverted nipples. So I was beyond freaked out.

    What helped is a supportive husband and family. A friend who had BF'd her kids and gave support, and just determination.

    It's way to early for you to be worrying about it. Just go with the flow like bex said
