Best sling to breastfeed in?

Lots of slings say they're suitable for breastfeeding or have a "nursing position", but looking at them, I can't see how!

Did you successfully breastfeed your baby in a sling? Which one was it (sling, not baby...)?

I've tried in a Wilkinet, but it wasn't possible for me!

Yes, I have. In a lightly padded ring sling, or better stille, in a non-padded ring sling. The first I had was a Marsupial Mother (scottish made and only has lightly padded rails) and my favourite are zolowear slings (totally unpadded). The baby feeds in the cradle position. That said, I have seen older babies (much older) feeding upright on mums front in an abc style carrier. Ihave not done it though.

what do you do with your clothes when the baby is feeding in the sling? just wear a t-shirt and hoick it up?
