Best sling/carrier to wear to breast feed

I am currently pregnant with my second child....my little boy will be 22 months old when number 2 comes along. When I fed my first I had all the time in the world to sit on the sofa feeding him and had no reason to get up if I didn't want to. But obviously things will be different this time and I'd like a sling or carrier that I can use both round the house and out and about that enables easy breast feed while wearing......to keep my hands free while running after my toddler. Any suggestions?

I have a Wilkinet (soft structured, ties not buckles) and a Moby. I find I can breastfeed in the Wilkinet easily enough (though slows walking down) by tying the baby boob height. I havent yet been able to feed in the moby and definitely wouldnt have been able to when baby was teeny. She's 9wks now.

I fed my DC2 in the moby, just took a bit of time to know how loose the wrap needed to be to let him access the boob without being squished against it. I've just perfected feeding in a ring sling, which is much easier. I tried one with and without padded rails and without was much easier. I found YouTube great for home practice smile he's now 7 months and we are getting on with it well.
