Hi. New to the board. My baby is due next month today. I am interested in using a front wrap carrier to nurse during outings and such. Can someone direct me to a site or something that would give me directions on how to position the baby in order to accomplish this?

This is one of the best wrapping sites:

here is a front wrap nursing an older infant:

I think newborns are really easy to nurse in a pouch or ring sling, wrapping with a newborn is almost overkill to me--it is cozy and secure, but so is pouch.

Also, their is a babywearing DVD that has a really great wrapping section. The woman on the DVD is the same woman from the mama toto project video:

the babywearer is a great place to learn all about wrapping and all forms of babywearing, there is a forum just on wrapping!
