I know, we’ve all been there. Breastfeeding in public can really be nerve-wracking! You have to make sure your baby is getting fed, but also you can’t help but notice all eyes on you. Some of us are perfectly comfortable with this; for others, this experience is mortifying. If you need a carrier ideal for discreet nursing, you’re in luck. Meet the Beco Soleil Baby Carrier!
Breastfeeding with the Beco Soleil
The Beco Baby carrier is perfect for nursing. Once you have your baby in the proper position facing your chest (check out my other videos for instructions on this), you’re ready to breastfeed! Decide which side your baby would like to start nursing on, and slowly loosen those straps inch by inch. A unique feature on the Beco Soleil carrier is the shoulder strap. These, as well as the side straps, will help lower your baby to breast level. When your baby has emptied your breast on one side, tighten the straps on that side to the original position. If you’re breastfeeding from the other breast, repeat these same steps for that side, too. Watch my video for more!
The Beco Soleil is a perfect option for mothers who need to nurse on-the-go! Watch my video for more information and remember to read the owner’s manual!
