I have a Moby on the way but the Ellaroo keeps catching my eye. Is it silly to have both? I mean they're basically the same idea. Or does having one make the other obsolete (like if I bought an Ellaroo would I have no need for the Moby)?

Well, to me it's like having more than one pair of shoes. Besides, you'll need one while the other is in the wash!

A Moby by itself would work just fine. But I have both and I use both. So, yes, for me it has been worth it.

You definitely need a second sling in case the first one gets dirty.

Do you need both? Probably not. Are they exactly the same? No. I have both and use both. The Moby Wrap is much better for facing out, the EllaRoo is much better for back. (Though I usually use my Ergo for this.) I also think I'll use the EllaRoo much more than the Moby in the summer because it's lighter.

And I love the point anotherKatrina made... If I have a black pair of heels, does it mean I don't need a brown pair of pumps?
