It makes my life so much easier, and she loves being close to me.

How to Breastfeed in a Woven Wrap
A Few Tips for on How To Breastfeed in a Woven Wrap
01. Always start in a FWCC. It’s the easiest carry to adjust then readjust with a long wrap. If you have as short wrap, a slip knot hip carry may be best for nursing as it’s also easy to adjust!
02. Wear a v-neck tee. This ensures your outfit is breastfeeding-friendly! I love this one that is sustainably-made, comfy, and only $18.
03. Use the side rail (see video) to support baby’s head to keep you hands-free. The fabric on either side of baby can be pulled over their little head (the back of their head) to provide support! See photo above.
04. Always readjust your carry when baby is done nursing! (see end of video).
Make sure to watch the full tutorial video below. I film from start to finish, so getting baby ready to nurse, nursing, falling asleep, and then I show how I adjust for comfortable carrying during the wrap nap!
