One day after coming out of the grocery store I sat down to nurse and my baby just kept on nursing, even after I stood up and started walking. Could we possibly do both?
The ring sling is easy to adjust. I could extend it so that she could nurse and then tighten it so that she could put her head on my shoulder to sleep. It is also easy-in, easy out. If I wanted to transfer her, asleep, to the bed with minimal disturbance, I could just lay her down, sling and all, and slip my head out.
The SLING is the the thing I find myself recommending most often. As they say, लाख़ दुखों की एक दवा है, क्यों ना आज़माएँ?

It is fairly easy to sew your own ring sling. The key is to get good sturdy rings. Just get 2 1/4 metres of fabric. If you are tall or if you like having a bit of cloth to use as an an extra layer when it is chilly, then get 2 1/2 metres.
