Can you BF with a Bjorn?

This is related to my PP about being stuck on the couch nursing. Someone suggested nursing with a sling. I have a bjorn, but not a sling. It seems too low to nurse... an I wrong?

My sister gave me her bjorn and DD isn't crazy about it but I was thinking the same thing. So I got DD into the bjorn last week and tried everyway possible to breastfeed but it wasn't happening. If you are VERY well endowed you may be able to make it work :)

They say on the box that it can be used for nursing, but I don't know how.

I can see how **maybe** an older baby might be able to if it's adjusted properly but I've got Ashley in one now and there's no way (though I've got it so she's sitting high up, head above my chest).

Slings once you learn how to use them are easier-- the other carrier I use is the Ultimate Baby Wrap, and that'd be realyl easy.
