Question Best sling/pouch/etc. to use when BFing?

Any of you wear your baby/child? I'd like to get a sling/pouch/mai tei/etc. so I can carry my baby and have my hands free. But, I don't know which to get.

I want one that I can easily BF my child in.

Which one for a newborn?

Which one for an older child?

Any suggestions would be welcome.

Thanks!

I bought a wrap off a wonderful ebay mama. Way inexpensive and awesome colors. I have 2. Look her up....

ebay userid---------- momofsasha

or in the search type in ---------- sasha's wrap

HTH it's kind of like the moby wrap but better.

These work for older and younger babies.

I've only used a ring sling for my babies (newborn to toddler) from www.snugglehugs.com. It's easy to bf in because it's adjustable. I recently got a Hotsling pouch, and while I love wearing my toddler in it, I think it will be difficult to breasteed in because of the non-adjustability.

I have used both the ring sling and the Moby wrap adn my favorite for nursing by far is the ring sling. I do love my moby but it is a little more challenging to nurse in IMO.
