How to Breastfeed in a Beco Gemini Baby Carrier

Thanks for joining me today from my nursery! In this video, I’m continuing with my demonstrations of the Beco Gemini Baby Carrier. Previously, I’ve showed you how easy it is to front carry and back carry with the Beco. Now, I’ll show you how to conveniently breastfeed your baby while on-the-go with this convenient baby carrier!
How to Nurse in the Beco Gemini
Breastfeeding in the Beco Gemini is really very simple and discreet. Once your baby is securely positioned (as I always say, high and tight!) and you’ve decided which side you would like to begin breastfeeding on, loosen up on the side strap on the side you want. Ease out the strap and lower your baby to breast level.
When they’ve had their fill, you’ll want to move them back into the high and tight position. As with every carrier, you’ll want to make sure you follow the “kissing rule” and that your baby has enough room to breathe between his chin and your chest. For more safety tips and a demonstration, watch my video!

My baby isn’t here yet but this is good information to have. I love that you have this type of information on a bunch of different carriers. I feel that whichever one i choose i will have enough info to function as i please. Thanks, you’re awesome!
Baby number 1 due in January, and I plan to breastfeed. This is wonderful information on how to breastfeed while carrying baby! 🙂
Thanks so much for this giveaway! I’m due in January and this would be awesome to have!
this is awesome!! we’re always nursing on the go!
I LOVE nursing in a carrier. When new baby gets here next month – I plan to do it a lot.
We don’t have a carrier (and baby is still on the way) but I love that the Beco allows you to nurse on the go. Thanks for the awesome tutorial! We would love to win a Beco carrier that both me and my hubby could use; they seem really adjustable with the crossable straps. Thanks for hosting this amazing giveaway!
Looks like a comfortable carrier. What a great giveaway!
It took us a bit to get good at it, but I love nursing in my carrier. I love how descreet it is.
I haven’t tried to nurse in a soft carrier yet. So far I’ve only used a Moby wrap and I have to take lo out to nurse him. I like the options the Beco offers.
I’ve always wanted to try one of these.. more structured than a sling, which is what I have!
I would love to give my sister in law this baby carrier! She just had a baby.
We need a buckle carrier!! Thanks for the chance
I would love to try a Beco! My baby loves being worn.
Thanks for the very detailed video on using the carrier.
I have an ssc that’s a little more complicated (stokke) but hopefully this method still works. Wiggling him out and working around the carrier is just a huge pain.
I never mastered nursing in the carrier with my first, but would love a new Beco to try with baby #2 (on the way!)
I’d love to win one! Never tried the gemini before.
Great video on how to nurse your baby in a carrier.
Thanks for the video. Nursing in my ring sling makes me nervous, but this seems more structured! Thank you~
this is a great option for busy moms. Id love to try a Beco
I love the idea of being able to breastfeed in this! I’ve tried in my ring sling but it didn’t quite work out 🙁
Thanks for the great tips! And thank you so much for the chance to win this awesome carrier!!
Pics and videos are really helpful! Thanks!
So many features! It would be so awesome to be able to nurse without stopping to find a good place to keep my 4yr old busy too
Thank you for posting this! So much easier to understand when there are pictures!
Would love to try a Beco!
Would love a Beco for a friend who’s expecting!
Thanks for the tips!
I’ve heard really great things about the Beco carriers, thank you for hosting this giveaway!
I’ve been following the beco community page, and I’m really excited to try it! 🙂 .
Would love to work on nursing in a carrier with the new one due in December. 🙂
That is SO exciting. Pls keep me posted!! You will have a cozy baby for winter!
