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!
