Gosh, I only have:

2 Maya ring slings (want to sell one)
1 Pretty Momma ring sling (may sell)
1 Sachi silk ring sling on the way
1 Mommy's Helper Solarveil ring sling

1 Moby wrap (want to sell)
1 KKAFP (want to sell)

1 Sachi brocade Mei Tei
1 Kozy Mei Tei on the way

1 Bjorn (am consigning)
1 Ergo (for the hubby mostly)

Do you all that have much BIGGER collections REALLY use them ALL?

Most of mine just sit and I babywear 24/7!

I just get into the mode of using one or two all the time!

I just got my first wrap someone was a blessing and loaned me thier mama kangaroo a few weeks ago so I can try it and see if it would work for me I have subluxing shoulders and clavicals (collar bones) due to a rare collagen disorder called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome so regular slings hurt me as well as the bjorn type carriers.

Anyway I then purchased my own mama kangaroo and love it. It was such a blessing to try one first thank God for kind hearted trustworthy people.

I am sending it back to her on Monday. I think it would be great to start a swap like that where you get a month to try it out before you buy. I of coarse think it would only be fair if have a history of positive feedback form other boards, ebay, yahoo, amazon etc..

I also have a Hawaiian Sarong about 2yrds i haveused as a sling I tie in a knot but can't wear it too long.

I own the snugli (want to sell)
6 in 1 infantigo (want to sell)
and the newborn cradle snugli (want to sell)

I am waiting for my mei tai hip carrier and am trying to make my own MT as we speak.

It is my hope to try other wraps and MT carriers in the future.

I have:

~hotsling
~OTSBH
~Maya Wrap
~KKAFP
~Kozy

I'd like to get a couple more but ds is getting to the point where he prefers walking most of the time and 5 carriers seem more than enough for those times that he wants 'up a mamma' I'd love to get wisewoman sling tho.

Hi all.. I just wanted to say Hi and also say WOW.. I am definately a newbie to babywearing. I have only one padded ring sling that I love.. 2 baby carriers.. one is made out of duable fabrid and the other is a Babyco one. I only thought about getting another variety of sling.. but I wasn't sure.. Is there any suggestions for this newbie mom? I have the heavy padded one which is wonderful on cool or chilly days.. in New England (Massachusetts) But I will also be in Perth, Australia as well.. my daughters Paternal family lives here. I would love to have one for the summers.. and even though the summers in New England are not nearly as hot.. it would be wonderful to have.

Thank you...

So far none, but I've used different slings for the two kidos. However, at the rate I'm going with my Wise Woman, I don't think it will last another year. Just another reason to get another sling

I have:

One WAHM fleece pouch never used as DD HATED it and it was the wrng size (never could get the right size for me in that design). Such a shame as most people who have them, love them.

A Kari-me
(similar to the Hug-a-Bub). A lifesaver when DD was younger, she was in it all the time. Especially good for ehr as she was a big baby who put on wieght FAST.

A homemade ring sling (made from Elizabeth Lee pattern), excellent for short distances but DD is too big for it now.

A homemade ABC style carrier (used Emma's Sewing and Rev Jans patterns). It was a very fancy one I made specifically for a wedding when DD was three months old. Was actually comfy enought to use when my Kari-me was in the wash when DD was smaller.

An Ergo, haven't had that much use out of it yet (waiting for nicer weather) but have loved it when I've used it and DD loves it too.

A Hippychick hip seat. Excellent for "pick up, put down" days and to and from the car.

Wow, I had no idea I had that many 'till I wrote it all down !

Good! I am not the only one with this strange addiction.

We currently have in the house somewhere:
-3 stretch wraps (a woman has to match what she's wearing)
-2 non stretch wraps
-2 unpadded ringslings.
-shower ringsling.
-2 adjustable hemp fleece pouches (our favorite at the moment, making DH a very stylish handpainted black one at the moment)
-2 other pouches
-2 doll pouches for DC
-2 gauze knotted slings that fit in my pocket or purse.
-kubeba (african style carrier, worn around the chest for women only)
-masai square cloth, traditionally used for wearing children
-mei tai style carrier.

on loan somewhere in the Netherlands:
-5 stretch wraps
-ringsling
-baby bjorn

notice most are in duplicate, DH wears the kids as much as I do. And I like spreading the word about babywearing by lending stuff to people.

Wow, you all have a LOT of carriers! I just sold about 10 that were sitting around. In return, I bought myself an Oopa

I also have a Freehand Silk Brocade.

Pretty slim selection here!

BUT, I have lots of paypal now and baby # 2 on the way in October, so I get to go shopping!!
