Ooops - didn't see the question! My tip is: wear bf friendly clothing to avoid a big fuss readjusting clothing while baby is in the carrier.

When i breastfed the couple times in my wrap I just lowered one side by loosening the shoulder strap alto and it tilted my daughter to one sie and was a perfect height :)

Tip for breastfeeding in a carrier is to practice, practice, practice. Figure out what works for you and get comfortable doing it at home first!

wear easy to nurse in top/bra and also if you loosen the carrier a bit and drop baby down it helps with positioning :)

I have personally never nursed in a carrier, but I imagine wearing a tshirt over a nursing tank would be easy, or a shirt with a low and stretchy neckline for easy access.

My tip would be to wear clothing that has easy access to the breast. A good nursing bra or tank that won't take too long to adjust was always beneficial with my littles!

Honestly, practice at home first and make sure your comfortable in how you position and what you wear. Baby will know if your not comfortable and this will cause him/her to be the same. Hope this helps!

Find a carrier that is as comfortable for you as your everyday clothing, begin by wearing it around the house, so that you feel more comfortable in how it works, and how to adjust it easily, so that when you are out in public you don't become anxious in using it. This is something I should have done, it would have eased a lot of stress!

My advice is to get out with other mamas who breastfeed and who wear their babies. You will get hands on help that will make feeding baby in a carrier like second nature. I think the key to nursing in a wrap is to latch the baby on, then tie the wrap securely supporting the baby in the proper latch. For breastfeeding in a sling, you loosen the sling, latch baby, then tighten it securely and cozily while baby slurps up all that good milk. Here's a video that shows just that: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQa0k-poMuQ&feature=youtu.be

Practice makes perfect!! It takes time to learn to breastfeed together and time to master it while conveniently wearing baby!

With a new little squishy coming this year, I would really like one of your wraps! I've heard nothing but wonderful things about them <3 I've already nursed one baby past three years, and I know how important babywearing is to pick up on all those early hunger cues.

Starting off, be patient when trying to nurse while babywearing. Getting frustrated will only prolong the process. Practice at home with a happy baby.

My tip is do it in public from the very beginning. This helps normalize breastfeeding and get your comfortable nursing anywhere and your baby less fussy (especially with being worn too!) and carry burp cloths because sometimes your let down in the early days will mean your carrier gets hosed if you don't have something there to catch the spray :)
