I wear a shirt with a low neckline or that can be buttoned down or a shirt with a nursing tank under and just lift the top shirt. I've gotten over people catching a glimpse of boob but really don't anyone seeing my squishy flabby belly

Low neckline makes sense. We're in MN and I forget about low shirts since its cold here and I do love my nursing tanks!

Re: Nursing while wearing

I'm amazed by y'all being able to do that. I wish I had known when I started nursing that there were so many options. We had a rough start bfing and I to this day (almost 9 months later) only know how to do 2 nursing positions. Props to you!

I know everyone is different, but I now have a real understanding of what "breastfeeding is difficult" can mean! It was an awful first week or two. I'm very proud of the progress we've made, but I know progress happens differently for everyone. Good for you for hanging in there!!!

Re: Nursing while wearing

I have been nursing my 16 week old son easily in my ergo..just loosen the straps and pop the boob out...but my wrap is a little more tricky since he is wrapped closer to the body..

Great thread. I nursed DD1 for 13 months and just couldn't get the hang of it while in the moby or ergo. Bought a maya sling this time and trying to make it work with DD2 (3 weeks old). I think it's harder for large breasted women. The baby needs to be very low in order to BF, you know?

Re: Nursing while wearing

I nursed in a ring sling and an ergo, but my son is a super easily distracted nurser so he wasn't a huge fan of either. Good luck!

Re: Nursing while wearing

I've breastfed in the Ergo from birth. It's really easy, especially while in public. Nobody knows I'm doing it!

That's awesome! Sounds like you'll both get the hang of it in no time!

I love my nursing taks and wear them every day around the house, usually with nothing over them (especially while baby wearing, it gets so hot). When I go out I just put something on over the top that I can open from the top; like a cardigan, hoodie(watch the zippers) or low cut/deep V neck top.

Re: Nursing while wearing

I also BF in public, without them knowing it even while standing ..lol
With our ABC (Action baby carrier), I will just loosen the hip belt,pull down a little, loosen the side straps, position baby in the breast, pull the low neckline down and that's it. I also use the cover when DD is nursing so no one can peek at the boobs,,lol
this video might help, goodluck!!
