I have:

1 Moby
1 Babyhawk
1 Beco
1 ring sling
6 woven wraps

I plan on making (and have materials for):
2 mei tais
2 ssc a la Beco 4 gen (one for me and one for DH)
1 podegai

Eventually, one day, a 100% dupioni silk ring sling copying Sakura Bloom's French Vanilla, except with a SBP shoulder.

I plan on buying:
probably 4 more wraps over the next year
another SSC

And I love having a big stash! I love sharing the babywearing love. I am the carrier library for all my friends and I enjoy helping them find a carrier style they love. I like supporting this industry. I use them many times a day, every day, and I have more babies to come.

I'm Kellie :, married to Chris , and mom to one baby girl (7/12/09).

But probably around 53.

I have 12 MTs, 16 wraps, 8 SSCs, 1 Pod, 8 ring slings, 2 pouches, and the rest are out on loan to friends.

For those of you with quite a few slings, how do you store them all?

I bought a moby off of craigslist today (which brings me to THREE slings!) and it came with a nice little cloth bag, but my Chinese carrier did not and it is kind of big..

I'm an amateur.

1 bjorn (a gift)
1 ring sling (might need to try it again...)
1 ergo (the bestest ever)

DD (13 mos) is not really in to being worn--it makes her feel confined, I think. So I have no excuse to buy any more. Maybe for a new LO some time in the future...

1 ergo (a present)
1 maya RS (hand me down)
2 maya ties (clearance)
1 baby bjorn (YUCK! donating this soon...)
1 taylor made mesh RS
1 slinglings pouch (hand me down)
1 sleepy (hand me down)
1 moby
1 zolo wear RS (craigslist, but don't like it, need to contact manufacturer for help)

trying to figure out woven wraps and will end up making one if i can figure it out and if LO can stand it

figuring out which podegi to make and will probably make both a narrow and wide pod -- narrow will probably do wrap-style straps, and wide probably the jan andrea pattern

will probably make a gauze or light weight wrap for next summer

would love to have an amauti (if i were rich!)

There is 1 more wrap and 1 more sling I really, really want, I just have to sell my size 1 diaper stash and maybe a few other things, lol, to get them!

Oh yeah, 1 gauze wrap plus a pouch sling but I am not using them right now.

We have

2 Moby
2 Gypsy Mama gauze wraps
3 pouch slings (1 for DH, 2 for me)
1 ring sling
1 Ergo
1 Beco Gemini

We don't really use the pouches at the moment as J doesn't like lying down and is still a bit little for hip carries. I'm hoping we'll get some use out of them for hip carries when she's bigger.

I also don't really like the Ergo at the moment, she just doesn't seem comfortable in it, like it's too big for her or something. Again, hoping it will be good as she grows.

My Gemini arrived yesterday and I LOVE it I think it is going to become my favourite as the weather gets hotter and makes wraps (even the gauze) less appealing.

Knowing what I know now, I would have just got the wraps and the Gemini and maybe an Ergo when she's a toddler. Ah well, we live and learn and maybe the next baby will like nothing more than snuggling down in a pouch all day

Ok...now I do not feel so bad. I have a LOT! :

I would have to go do an inventory to actually tell you what I have.

Mama to 9 so far:Mother of Joey (20), Dominick (13), Abigail (11), Angelo (8), Mylee (6), Delainey (3), Colton (2) and Baby 8 and Baby 9 coming sometime in July 2013.   If evolution were true, mothers would have three arms!
