BF in a Calin wrap?

How easy is it to BF in a Calin wrap? And is the position it puts the baby in the best one for its hip development? Have read conflicting information.

Many thanks

Wraps are great for hip position, as you get get their legs nice and wide and their bums, hips and thighs all supported.

As for BF, I think most people find a cradle carry the best. I don't think everyone gets on with BF with the baby still in the carrier, it seems to be a personal thing.

But there are carries that you can tie, and then pop the baby in and out as you please. So that's another option.

DD always refused to go in a cradle-carry so I used to just loosen and lower the normal front-cross carry and then raise and tighten it again when she finished. I remember doing this with a Calin Bleu gauze wrap a few times while walking between house viewings so it must be easier than it sounds...
