We're celebrating International Babywearing Week by featuring some of our readers' stories and pictures while breastfeeding their babies in carriers.

A soft structured carrier, the most popular of which is the Ergobaby.

Lisa shares: "the Ergo is super easy! We went to the Memphis Zoo this summer when my son was 7 wks and I nursed him while we walked around. We were with some friends and she didn't even notice I was nursing until I switched sides."
Amy assures us how discreetly one can nurse in an Ergo: "I LOVED nursing in my Ergo. I nursed her so often, in so many places and in front of so many people who would have otherwise been aghast. Alas, they never knew."
