How Many Carriers Do You Have - Page 2

post #21 of 54
I have 7 right now

2 Hotslings
1 Kozy MT
1 Babyhawk(most recent addition which I )
1 Wise Woman RS
1 New Native pouch
1 Ergo

I am dying for a Zolowear RS and a Gypsy mama wrap. The only carrier I haven't done yet is a wrap. To be completly fullfilled, I must conquer the wrap before my buying days are over

Check out MDC's Trading Post, or head over to www.thebabywearer.com - you can usually find some great used carriers for really good prices.

What kind of carrier are you looking for?

I bought most of mine used off TBW site.

So Jealous...: I totally want a MT
I have 4
2 OTSBH(DD's fav for sleeping/nursing in)
1 homemade water sling
1 absolutley beautiful urban pouch from cortez and co

I really want to try a MT and a Mammas Milk Invisible adjustable pouch-those look soo cool. I also wanna get a nice fleece ring sling for winter. DD is very used to ring slings and loves em to death, but I personally would like to see how we do with something a lil different. Can bigger babies (like 20lbs or so) be back carried in a MT? I have never tried it before with my ring slings-too paranoid I guess...LOL...

Oh, totally! Mei tais are GREAT for older/bigger kids, although I love 'em for newborns, too. They really excel at back carrying, which is great for the toddler crew. I have my 4mo on my back as I type.

the first one I got was a ring sling made bya local mom. Abigail didn't like it as a baby, but likes it now. Sophia needed it as an infant, so I was glad I kept it, even though it really hurts my back and I feel so constrained in it.
The second one I got was a SnugliI from another mother who's baby had outgrown it. It's for babies up to 20 pounds. Once Sophia was interested more in the world, she really liked this one because she could easily look out. My back likes it better, too, since it's more centered.

2 ergos (1 is now DH's)
3 hotslings
1 beco
1 ellaroo wrap
1 zolo pouch
1 zolo ring sling
2 silk oopa ring slings
2 babyhawks (1 w/ minkee, 1 reversable)
oh, & an organic new native pouch

I have:
  • 4.1 m Storchenwiege Ulli
  • 4m Didymos Indio Terra dyed green
  • 2.2 m Didymos Indio tricolor blue
  • Bara Barn druvor
  • Vintage Gypsy Mama Bali Baby Breeze in canary yellow that only goes to the beach or stays in the house. It's way too bright for my tastes

It's all wraps as I decided early on that MTs weren't for me. However I am getting intrigued by podegais. I can't justify buying another carrier to dh now that my dd is 13 mo and running all over the place. Maybe if I can figure out how to use my sewing machine, I can make one using an old bed sheet?
post #37 of 54
i have in regular use: 5

1 maya wrap RS
1 ergo
1 stretchy wrap
1 Didy
1 spoc

most days i use all of these except the ergo (my baby is only 4 mos so dh uses the ergo but i don't yet...prefer wraps at this stage)


stored away for another babe/stage 4:
1 hotsling
1 homemade pouch
1 homemade mei tai sorta thingy
1 lightweight cotton WAHM RS

Have you gotten to use this much yet?!! I have been breaking mine in and I LOVE IT! When I first got it I was thinking, 'what am I doing adding another MT to my collection....': but seriously, this MT is so comfy! I have the traditional shoulder straps; yours must have the clips?

I have a

- maya wrap (well loved by my dd)
- WHAM sling (so comfy... )
- Freehand mei tai (beautiful, but small..)
- Babiesbeyondborders MT (perfect for my girl and my baby)
- Bundle of Love pouch (for my diaper bag)
post #39 of 54
I have gotten rid of all the pouch slings I used when DD was tiny, so now I only have:

An Ergo (used daily!)
Two me-made mei tais

I'm also in the middle of sewing a soft structured carrier (sort of a homemade Ergo, but simpler and lighter).
post #40 of 54
I only have 3 a moby, maya ring sling and an ergo! I would have more but I have spent all my money on cloth diapers!
