Holding onto your baby with one hand, gentle unclip one of your shoulder straps on the preferred side you wish to feed them.

3. Angle your baby 

Move your baby slightly to the side you are feeding them on and slowly lower them to chest height, you may need to lower the belt slightly. Cradle them here, monitoring them constantly. Make sure you are always keeping one hand on your baby.
