    Hmm TRL, I thought the same, I think your Addison has reflux right? What were the symptoms?? I am thinking not because the minute I pick her up she is completely fine and falls back to sleep and at night thank goodness she is only getting up the usual 2 to 2 1/2 hours?

    Addison had silent reflux, where she would spit up and swallow it again. So she would scream in pain. I could hear the reflux also. Lots of hiccups. Elevating is the best position. Maybe why she is fine while you are holding her. The swing is always a good option, or elevating her crib with some towels under the top half. So it's at an angle.

    I think the ring type slings are generally best for BFing newborns, like the Maya Wrap? No personal experience obviously but that's what I've read/researched.

    When I nannied newborns most strongly preferred to be held up until at least 3 months, and I've never had a reflux baby in my care (to my knowledge), so your DD2 sounds healthy and normal to me. If the parents had an easily adjustable sling I'd use it while cooking or if I had a toddler (or more) in addition to an infant. I *imagine* I could have BFed pretty easily in the front ones. I don't like the back ones anyway...

    Please let us know what works for you as I think I have a very similar upper body to you and hopefully I can use the same one, one day. And tell us which ones didn't work too!

    Good luck

    My DD loved the baby bjorn, but I never BF in it... Not sure if it's possible. She also had a phase where she wanted to be held and nursed or would scream all day. She had reflux and we ended up eventually switching to enfamil AR formula (to all the moms who judge moms who use formula keep your criticism to yourself, I was advised to do it by her pedi, and felt bad enough I couldn't exclusively BF!) I have also heard wonderful things about the Ergo baby!

    Hopefaithson, I found the Bjorn put quite a lot of strain on my back and I don't think it's design would easily accommodate breastfeeding. My friend also loved the Bjorn but I found it so uncomfortable, maybe because I am small and she was very tall. The ergo just seems to attribute the weight more magically!!!

    I prefer a wrap like a Moby when they are tiny and then a Tula after about 12 pounds.

    Stretchy wraps like je porte mon bebe ones are brilliant to bf in. Or ring slings.
