Re: am i too short to wear and nurse?!

I'm short & nursed while BWing, especially in the store grocery shopping etc. I prefer the privacy it offered & less comments/staring. I did have to loosen the wrap or sling I was using so that DS could more easily relax & nurse. But other than that, I just looked like a shortie smuggling a basketball with feet lol

I'm 5 ft 0 inches too. I was able to nurse in my ergo and wrap. I preferred the wrap to feed in because it was easier (for me) to adjust to bf then adjust again once he was done. I also liked it in my ergo, I just pushed the waist down so he would sit lower.

I nurse in the ergo all the time, but what I do is take her out and put her back in, laying down sideways (like normal nursing), and latch her on then do the clips. It works beautifully!

Re: am i too short to wear and nurse?!

I have a Boba and am 5'7" and can not for the life of me nurse with it. I've watched the video on YouTube 3 times! Every which way we try, LO is either flopping around in it or too scrunched up with her neck twisted. Any one have any suggestions? So frustrated.

Oh! That makes sense. Genius! Why didn't I think of that!?

5'1 1/2", yes the 1/2" makes a difference when you are this short. On top of it I have a short torso. I can't nurse and wear. I envy my taller friends.
