Wow! That is a lot of baby carriers mamas! I thought I had a lot, but I don't think so anymore

1 hotsling
1 moby wrap
1 baby wrap
1 ergo baby
1 rei back pack

I really only use the ergo baby on a regular basis anymore. Dd is 19mos and pretty heavy at this point. We still use the hotsling on occasion for short periods.

Well we used to have a whole lot, but now that DS is older we have a better idea of what he likes (and what we like). We have been working on selling all our pouches and wraps and RS's... pretty much everything except for:

- our watercolor Kozy that works for both DH and me

- DH's zolo burning love pouch which I bought him last year for his birthday

- and we just got a NG Ergo, which we like so much that we might get another one!

We feel so "mainstream" wearing the Ergo, but it is really comfortable

Fun!

1 Hotsling
1 Ergo
1 Kozy Mei Tei
1 Storch wrap
1 KKAFP
1 KK cotton pouch
1 solarveil RS
and....one wise woman RS on the way



But...but...their carrying needs change as they get older! I keep telling dh I'm going to sell some of the ones I don't use as often, but I haven't decided if that's a lie or not. I like trying the different types.

A happy woman

We started with a Baby Bjorn
Then I made a pouch sling
Then I made another pouch sling
Then I bought a hotsling
A Kelty Backpack on the way (for DH)
I am requesting an Ergo for Mothers day
and plan on making a Mei Tai.

So perhaps by the end of this month I will have 7 baby carriers.

2: 1 Heart to Heart Sling, 1 Snuggli....I could definitely have gotten away just with the sling.

I've got a maya wrap, a baby bjorn, and infantino (that I don't care much for...it slides up on me too much), and a peanutshell...also have a sweet kelty backpack. All of these were either gifts or hand-me-downs...can you believe it!!??

We have two Maya wraps (one from a friend who didn't like the style), a mesh sling we bought in a Japanese store, and a backpack frame style carrier which is DS fav right now.
