I'm 33 weeks pregnant with my second baby. When he comes, my first will be only 18 months. I hope to wear baby #2 most of the time to keep my hands free to deal with baby #1. I will also be breastfeeding.
So, what is the best style of baby carrier for breastfeeding a newborn? I already have a structured carrier (the Infantino Breathe) from last time for when he's older. It seems like there are two choices- a wrap style like the Moby
or a ring sling like the Maya
. I'm not too concerned with privacy or style. I know it's probably a matter of personal preference, but I'm asking anyway.
(1) Is one of these definitely better for breastfeeding?
(2) Is one more convenient? I understand the Moby is more challenging to tie, but you get used to it. Will I need to retie it often, especially with a young toddler crawling all over me tugging on it?
(3) What about switching sides? Will I have to take the baby out and redo everything each time, and how difficult is that with the Moby vs. Maya?
(4) Would you recommend a different brand or a completely different style? I won't make my own unless there's literally no sewing.
