My son is 11 mo old, and I've been wearing him off and on since he was born.  We have a Moby now, but he is so wiggly now.  I don't know how to handle this; I don't want to not wear him, honestly I'd like to be wearing him more, it seems to settle him down. Any ideas?

When babies get mobile they typically want to be worn less and that's ok! You might consider getting an ergo or something similar that's quick & easy to put on that's also supportive of your older baby for when you really need to wear him to get things done.

We're using an ergo, a moby, and a ring sling. I've also been using the carriers to get him to sleep- particularly at night, as I have such a hard time getting him to sleep

That's a great selection of carriers! I would just let him be on the floor exploring as he wishes while you do whatever and not wear him unless you need to. 
Check out Janet Lansbury's blog on how to encourage your baby's attention span by allowing free play uninterrupted http://www.janetlansbury.com/category/parenting/parenting-play/  Also she has some great in action videos on you tube

Typically as you get more active while you carry your baby in a sling, they will settle down.
