I'm wondering whether to give this a go but wondered if it's as easy as it seems? Is it just awkward? Particularly if you're big boobed. Is a cheap ring sling suitable or do you need to spend more?
Thanks in advance! Xx

I've not managed it - I didn't try when I was using a Moby, and recently tried A in my Beco Gemini but he hated having the straps lowered (I guess he feels less secure) and cried and wouldn't latch.
For number two I'm planning to buy a Close Caboo which apparently has a cross-cradle position you can BF in. I'd be interested to hear from anyone who's done this?
Oh and when trying the Beco Gemini, a lady I met through a gentle parenting group on FB showed me how to do it, but there are also tons of YouTube videos you can watch. If there are any sling meets in your area, or a sling library, there'll be people more than happy to help you.

A friend feed brilliantly in a Manduca by lowering the straps and dropping him down to latch, but her baby was happy to latch that way.

I fed in my solar weeve Connecta. I doubt being big boobed would affect it you just have to work out how to cover discreetly & comfortable for yourself.
