How in the world do I BF in the ergo? We are still working on my supply, but I thought maybe if I could strap him in the ergo during the day, it might really help? Can anyone describe how to do this? I put the thing on and tried to figure it out with no success. we have the insert, but I have not used the bulky thing as Mason does fine without it when I am just carrying him.

i would sort of lower Sarah so she was level with my boob, and just pull my shirt down and let her latch on. i didn't do that until she was 3 or 4 months old though so it might be harder since Mason is smaller/younger.

well if you have a shirt that is cotton/stretchy and low cut it should work too.

you can get nursing tanks. that's what i use instead of nursing clothes. i wear the tank as my bra, and when i nurse i pull my tshirt up and unclip my tank, so my tummy and back are covered.

We're the opposite... he pushes me to just do it, but I want to hide in a corner. I'm working on it.

Nursing tanks are great! I'm ALWAYS wearing one. At home it's just the tank, and when I go out it's the tank under a shirt.

This is the only way I've been able to nurse in the ergo. I need to try more...

I don't wear any nursing clothes.

I just wear a tank with the bra in it, over a regular bra, then a regular shirt.

Tank covers belly, boobs are big enough to pull up and out of my bra and tank. amd my shirt covers the top of the boob.

Thanks everyone I have a few of those nursing tanks and will try that out! I also wear two layers all the time with a tank under my shirts, so that would work too!
