Breastfeeding in Ergo
I can't figure out how to make this work. Never did with our first, and an trying again. I have even watched videos on YouTube. I can get the straps super lose, but lo is still several inches above my breast. Any ideas?

Re: Breastfeeding in Ergo
can you aim your boob up a little bit, like push it up? maybe thats a dumb suggestion but its how I nurse in my ring sling

Tilt baby to the side and help bring your breast up to baby. I nursed dd in our ergo several times.

Curious about this as well. First LO expected this summer and I was trying to figure it out the other day when carrying around my niece. No, I didn't try to BF her, but I did notice she was way above my breast in the Ergo. Commenting so I can remember to check back on the replies later. :)

Could never figure it out either...

I have to loosen straps all the way... And hold the breast up really high... And baby still kind of has to "curl" down to get there. Haha. It works, though! I just usually have to hang on...

I could never do it, just figured my breasts were too fluffy for it to work.
