Baby is due in July, which happens to be the middle of netball season. I am a club executive and generally spend all day at the courts on a saturday. Therefore I am looking for a sling I can discreetly feed in (i have no problems feeding in public, but there are heaps of kids around and I don't want to make them uncomfortable)

i have a Baba.com,au sling which I bought at a baby shop 5 years ago. It is the best thing I ever got. I have now used it for 3 babies and it is a breeze to feed in. It is great to lay them down in and as they get older perfect for them to sit up in. It can be used in many poitions. I have breastfed a very needy prem and small for dates in it almost constantly while shopping, at meetings out at the zoo etc and no one would know it. i just lay them down adjust sling if needed and drape over a blanket.

I'd go with either a simple open-tailed ring sling or a stretchy wrap such as a Moby or Hugabub. Easy to feed in, but more importantly a bit easier to correctly position with a newborn than a closed tailed padded style sling (baba sling, bubba-moe etc). Please also bear in mind the TICKS guidelines for using a sling while not feeding - http://baby-carriers-downunder.com/2012/04...mportant-is-it/
