For a singleton, a sling is a good option. You can get ones that snuggle the baby in tight when you want her/him to sleep (great for Dads to wear while Mums are sleeping). There are also breastfeeding ones available. I didn't have much success feeding in a sling, as my two where both too used to being fed together, rugby ball style:

An EZ-2 Nurse twins breastfeeding cushion allows some extra freedom, as the cushion is holding the baby/ies so long as you are relatively stable (sitting on a bed or sofa), and allows you to use a laptop without frying any little craniums:

Hopefully your suggested design changes will happen, but in the meantime, the above may be useful.

Typing while bottle feeding: nope, I didn't manage. I needed one arm/hand to hold the baby, and the other to hold (and wiggle) the bottle. That was with a cushion for support.

I would certainly agree that in "getting the design right for this demographic group will probably benefit users in general". A very supportive information that has concern for each family. Thanks for the post.
