How many of you have nursed a baby while wearing them?

I am looking for a baby carrier that will help me to nurse my little one while staying somewhat hands free sometimes. I'd like one that works for a newborn best.

I have an almost 2 year old and I nursed him, but I never used any baby carriers for nursing. It just wasn't necessary, but I know I'm not going to be able to sit in my Lazy Boy Recliner all day long nursing the baby with a two year old running around!

Thanks for the input!

I've nursed in my Moby Wrap twice so far and it's not too hard. Check out this site, they have a comparison chart for tons or wraps and slings and they tell if it is easy to nurse in them.

I also have a moby. Its especially convenient if you plan to put it on and have it on for a while. Even like shopping - i'll keep it on even if baby is out to kepe from re-wrapping it. It does take practice though.

I also have a zolo sling - it works well for little ones too. As long as you have a shirt thats easily accessed, like a nursing shirt, most wraps & slings will work pretty well I personally havent had as much luck with pouches since they arent adjustable, or with the baby hawke b/c its a stiffer fabric.

Hmm, I have something like the Moby and haven't figured it out yet. I just ordered the Ergo so I'll let you know if we manage in there.

I nurse in the moby all the time... even walking at the park. It works really well.

I have an infantino baby carrier and I have nursed in it while shopping before. It seems weird because the baby is upright, but I tried it and it is not awkward at all! My SIL did it and I was curious to see if I could do it and it was great. So simple when out for long periods of time!
