Using a sling or carrier correctly and safely, and breastfeeding a baby are two very different skills that are best learned separately. Only consider combining these skills once you are confident and proficient in both.

Babies can easily get into a dangerous position or situation when attempting to breastfeed in a sling or carrier as their face can become smothered/covered. Breastfeeding a baby in a sling or carrier is not a hands-free activity as baby still requires head support.
