Can I Use My Sling For Nursing?

Yes. Follow these instructions to breastfeed discretely using your baby sling

After putting on your baby sling, hold baby facing your bare shoulder, sitting on your forearm.

Pull outer edge over your forearm and your baby's feet

Gently drop your baby into the pocket. If you baby is long enough, the feet will stick out the bottom

Guide baby's head to the same side as your bare shoulder, laying down with the curved seam following his spine.

Lift baby with your bare arm and adjust the sling to a comfortable spot with your other arm. You may want to slide the shoulder seam further down your arm while nursing.

With the sling pulled completely over the baby's head, you are now ready to begin nursing!

Putting On Your Sling

Find the top of the baby sling (it's the part with the tag) and the bottom curved pouch seam

Place the curved seam over the hip that you want your baby to be on, & stick the same hand through sling

Pull up and over the head on opposite shoulder of the curved pouch seam

Pull the pouch seam a little bit in front of your hip

Tips:

The HugaMonkey tag should be on the outside of your arm with the seamed edge against your neck

The shoulder seam should be on your shoulder blade
