Nursing in a Baby Bjorn...?

My sister-in-law recently gave us the baby bjorn that she used with her son. I'm not really a fan of it at all and have a pouch/sling on order from a local mother. But my question is...can you breastfeed while using one? I seem to recall seeing a mother at a local mall doing this once but can't figure out how to do it!

I have one, and you can not nurse with it (unless you have some amazing stretchable breasts!!)

Yeah, I'm not sure how that would work, unless you somehow loosened up the straps a lot to get them out of the way, and then kinda used one arm to hold your dc up (so that they could reach the boob, LOL!) I can't really imagine it being too hands-free or convenient.

You have to slide one strap down your shoulder a bit. I had one. This is not a baby bjorn, but you can get the idea:
