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

5' 1" here. and dd so that a factor too. I can nurse dd in a ssc or wrap but have to lower the waist so she slides down below my hips and lower the shoulder straps. and hold a breast for dd. But it works. Just a lot of finagling. Not like when they show it in the videos on youtube and the woman just tightens the wrap back up and its comepletely un-noticeable. but it is sneakier in the wrap.

I've done it and so has my sister, she's got an ergo and I have a kinder pack, also our very petite friend does it in her ergo

Yes you must lower it abit and also loosen the straps to move baby down ( also my sons huge and tall) then u have to kinda hold your breast. It does take some finagling, I mean its not like your on the recliner but its doable!

Oh I'm 5'3" w a short torso

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

i enjoyed reading this thread. i'm slightly, slightly shorter than 5' and was planning on getting a moby. so is the consensus that moby + short person = no nursing? sigh. perhaps i should look into an Ergo?
