I nursed DS in my wrap! I don't know how some women can do it hands free, but at least it freed up ONE hand for me to do things and I was able to walk around the apartment!! I would still like to keep trying to go hands free, so we can go to church and I can nurse discretely and encourage him to sleep through it until he isn't so fussy. We will have to keep practicing!

I've been wanting to try that! How did you have to position him to get that to work? I can't quite picture what I need to do....

I've been curious how nursing in a wrap works too. I've just gotten comfortable with using my wrap ... Do you find that your baby gets hot in the wrap? Everytime I've had Matthew in his (usually for about an hour or so), when I take him out he's REALLY hot. Usually the hair on the back of his head is wet with sweat. Am I doing something wrong?

This is basically what we did. I had the fabric to the back of his head though, and it wasn't hands free when I did it. I don't know if in time I can make it hands free for us or not, but for now, his head control isn't good enough I don't think.

MrsShaffer, I seem to have a hard time controling baby George's temp. He's either sweating or freezing! When I had him in the wrap at home, I've been putting him in in just a diaper or onsie. :/

Thanks Jamie, I tried it today and it worked great! His head was stable (he has great head control already), but I'm gonna have to work on the wrapping part to get it hands free. I could use one hand and stand up though, so I was happy

mrsshaffer, I have the temperature problem, too. Wherever our skin touches gets super sweaty, but I don't notice it until I take him out and then I feel so bad! But that happens when I'm just holding him without the wrap, too.
