I'd love to try to make a fleece sling. Is it a pouch that you made?

I've made a couple cotton pouches, but I am unsure about using fleece. Do you use a certain type needle? How did you do the edges? Did you serge it like they do on the KK fleece and the hotslings?

Since you made your fleece one, I'm sure you can make a cotton one once it gets too warm to use the fleece sling.

Take care-

with the fleece, the edges don't unravel or anything, so you don't need to be too careful about them.

Hey, have you tried nursing in the pouch? I have a friend I was planning to make one for, she is due in Dec. I took a fleece pouch I have her over for her to see and she was not impressed. She likes the ring sling I made for her older dd much better. So if you have tried nursing in the pouch was it easy to move things around? The big reason I was planning to do a fleece pouch was warmth for winter, but I have some nice flannels now that if the pouch is more of a pain to nurse in she will probably go for instead.

Yes, I have nursed in the pouch. Both when ds was 8 weeks, adn now 7 months. When ds was younger, it took a little practice, but I got the hang of it after the 3rd or 4th try. When we switched to the hip carry, I thought it was pretty easy, just not as discreet.

ease of nursing depends on a couple factors...
