Yes you can breastfeed, whether you are using a structured baby carrier, a sling or a wrap (I even have a great tip in this video if you don’t and only use a buggy).

I am lucky enough to have tried most of the baby carriers styles available on the market and I find that nothing compares with a wrap when you have a small baby. I love Didymos and Wrapsody although I tend to prefer the stretch and gauze wraps from Wrapsody as they are easier to manage. Only my Didymos silk/cotton is thinner than the 100% organic cotton one which makes it more comfortable and less bulky.

  • With a soft structured baby carrier, you only need to loosen the shoulder straps a bit and baby can feed with the additional bonus of being upright (less digestive issues). Of course you need a nursing top to get rolling without exposing your belly to the cold!
  • In a sling, loosen the rings to position baby and use the tail over your shoulder to cover up.
  • Lastly, with a wrap, you can easily release the knot and adjust the fabric around your nursing baby easily.

I also used a wrap for my son who was born premature, check out the post “Why #babywearing a #premature baby is good for her“.
