What else do you do while nursing?

I never did anything but read/snooze/watch TV (didn't have a sling). How 'bout you? Please note whether you used a sling or not when you were doing the activity you list.

Re: What else do you do while nursing?

Read posts on ds! Baby leans on my arm, and I hold the breast with one hand. The free hand (only the arm is in use) can operate a mouse, or even a keyboard.

I crochet, email, do laundry, walk the mall (with her in her wrap) You can make a wrap easily with just 6 yards of fabric strategically wrapped and tied, no sewing involved, I eat while nursing, and sometimes just gaze in amazement at my beautiful growing daughter.

Re: What else do you do while nursing?

Mostly get on the computer. It's really nice to be doing ChaCha right now, b/c once I start getting paid, I can be making money while nursing ds! lol

I never really got the hang of nursing him in a sling, and my breasts are too long and he is too tall for me to find a good position in a wrap. Trust me, I was so excited about all the things i would do while bfing when I was pregnant. Now I'm stuck on the couch in front of the tv. lol

ya know what I found that helps this? wearing a v-neck shirt and pulling your breast out on the top. It kinda supports your breast for you
