When we talk about the benefits of using a Mei Tai sling, we’ve often mentioned the fact that you can breastfeed your baby while wearing one. Not only does this help you and your baby to build an even closer bond, but it will also mean that you have your hands free to get on with other tasks or hobbies while your baby feeds. It’s also ideal for feeding when out and about, perhaps on a walk, while the sling itself will give you a lot of privacy (Especially the version with the hood).
Like with most aspects of breastfeeding, using a Mei Tai to feed can take a little bit of getting used to. You might be able to just lift your breast to your baby, but if this proves difficult or your baby is sat too high then there is a way that you can adjust your sling without having to take it off first.
