Just had to post how happy it made me to be able to feed DD while on the move. Not that I will be doing it all the time (great believer of putting my feet up when feeding), but very happy I've managed to BF in a sling. It was really comfy and worked really well.
DD2 is 4 months & it was the first time she really enjoyed being in the Ergo sling (we never got to grips with the baby insert). She wanted to feed, I pulled my top up, put the hood on & continued my tour of the old kitchens. DP didn't even know what we were up to until I told him.
Well done. It's a great feeling when you know you can do it if needs be.
I fed my 20 month old ds while walking around a packed department store, and nobody could tell! A couple of people wondered if he wasn't a bit too big to be on my front, but everyone just assumed he was asleep. It was a connecta solarweave, with a cardigan on top to hide my bare sides where I had pulled my top up.
HipHopOpotomus like ShowOfHands I've managed the boob dangling in the car thing but you need significantly sized boobs for obvious reasons . Err - not while I'm driving, obviously .
Fantastic, well done I loved feeding in a sling (DS2 is too big to now as he's back carried and even my boobs won't reach that far ). Although I did once hear a story of an African lady (in Africa) who went into a cafe, was chatting to her friend, and when the toddler on her back started to grumble she "whopped out her boob" (LOL), DIPPED IT IN THE SUGAR POT and slung it over her shoulder for her toddler!!! Now this may well be an urban myth but having spent a good deal of time in Africa I've seen some a-may-zing and very "flexible" ways of feeding which I'd have been VERY proud to have achieved, so who knows!!!
