Nursing in One Cross of the Front Cross Carry

4th March, 2010 / Baby Wrap Tips / 1 Comment

I’ve recently hit upon my new favorite nursing position.  I guess I’ve been wrapping Belle with legs out more often.  Now I’ve found that if I start in an upright Front Cross Carry, I can get a really comfortable and rock-solid nursing position (meaning truly hands-free) every time by lifting one of the crosses out from between her legs so that she leans sideways.

Let me explain, then I’ll post some pics to clarify.  I loosen the wrap a little, then lift Belle’s body so her weight’s not on the wrap, then I pull one of the crosses down from between her legs and around her body so that both legs are sticking out one side.  If I’m going to nurse her on my left side, then the cross coming over my right shoulder is the one that I’ll remove from between her legs.  Now that cross will be coming from my right shoulder, around her body, and around my left hip.  Her cute little legs will be sticking out on my right side, with the other cross still between them, and her head will be positioned at my left breast.

And I suspect that this is one of those cases where a picture is worth a thousand words so without further explanation…

Something about this particular position is very easy for me to get adjusted just so and does not require adjustments thereafter so I’m what you call a fan!

    This is awesome! I have tried this and hope to transition full-time. I can do pretty well when I am nursing on the left-side which is where I usually have my inner cross. Is there any difference when rotating them the opposite direction of the inner-cross? I’m having trouble getting it right on my right side…
