Top 5 Slings To Breastfeed In

Our first Top 5 of Breastfeeding Awareness Week is the top 5 slings to breastfeed in. We know how great it is to be able to breastfeed on-the-go and nothing helps you do that like a good sling. Here are 5 slings that we think are great for breastfeeding in.

Storchenwiege Ring Sling - ring slings and wraps are arguably the easiest style of sling to breastfeed in and with the Storchenwiege Ring Sling you get the best of both worlds - the supportiveness of the Storchenwiege woven wrap fabric and the ease of a ring sling. You could win one in our BFAW competition - check out the previous blog post for details.

Moby Wrap - the Moby is a supportive Stretchy wrap and is wide enough to be able to form a decent pouch to lie your baby in to breastfeed.

Calin Bleu Gauze Wraparound - this wrap is thin and light which makes it easy to manipulate and also less bulky. The booklet that comes with it is very clear and shows step-by-step instructions how to get your baby into a position to breastfeed.

Maya Lightly Padded Ring Sling - this is a great sling for novice ring slingers. The light padding in the shoulder makes it easy to position and very comfortable while the light woven fabric adjusts easily through the rings.

Babyhawk Mei Tai Carrier - the Babyhawk is a smaller bodied Mei Tai so is great for newborns as well as older babies and toddlers. Easy to loosen the straps and lower your baby into a position to breastfeed then tighten the sling back up afterwards.

Check back tomorrow for another Top 5!
