OK, ever heard of getting addicted to baby carrier shopping?? I must be in the right place to ask about this. I started with a ring sling, then a pouch (child #1) now for ds #2 Ihave a 2nd fashion fabric pouch, bought a mai tai, friend gave me an Ergo. I love them all and now think I need a podegi because I want to try the carry without anything tied on my shoulders/neck. I just need a reality check here before dh says I've gone over the edge and wants to stop my shopping binge.... Where could I get a used podegi or wrap? Maybe that would save me a few dollars...

I have three ring slings and three more waiting to be made up! Yeah, I like ringslings.

Give more**Expect Less
There is no such thing as bad weather. Only bad clothing.

I have 2 ring slings (actually 1 because I cut the rings out of the other one to make a new one and haven't done so yet), 3 meiteis (one is my "ooops I left the nice ones at home" one that I keep in the back of the car), 1 podegi, 1 blanketless meitei and a pouch.

Well I think my dp (and our bank account) might argue with you on that one!

Oh and I forgot my external frame backpack!

That puts me up to 9...

1 Moby wrap,
2 ring slings,
1 pouch (borrowed),
1 mei tai (current favorite),
1 back pack frame carrier.
(Dis)honorable mentions: Baby Bjorn.

Hmm. More than I thought but still pretty pitiful.

um, let's see...

2 pouches
1 homemade gauze wrap
1 gauze wrap
1 didymos
1 ergo
2 mei tais

dh has a pouch and a walking rock farms hip carrier

...and I'm sewing a new mei tai this weekend!

sadly, dh now has a "sling comes in, sling goes out" policy, so nothing else for us. (well, unless I find a REALLY good deal on fabrics )

I always feel like I have a lot, until I hang out TBW and realize I'm a comparative newby!

: Those ladies are busy! The for sale or trade board moves so fast. It seems like basically they are passing the same carriers around all the time. (I've dipped my toe in but I'm afraid to get caught up in it!)

I have a padded ring sling (Sling-Ezee, looks just like the OTSBH), a Maya adjustable pouch, a Koala Mei Tai, a new-style Ergo, and a Kelty backpack. I used to have another ring sling but then I lost a bunch of weight and it didn't fit anymore so I gave it away. So I own 5, used to be 6.

DD has decided she's too old for the slings, so she'll only ride in the Ergo or the Kelty. (She's 20 months old.)

I started w/ a pouch (mom and me)

I then added a solarveil ring sling (for a vacation we took when DS was 2 months old)

Then came a Maya ring sling

I have a Kozy mei tei and another ABC a friend made me

DH has his own Kangaroo Korner adjustable fleece pouch.

If we ever have another child, I'd like to add one or two more

I think they are all good for different purposes and at different stages of development

I have...
1 BabyHawk MT (another one on the way)
1 Kozy MT
1 Kangaroo Korner Solarveil RS
1 Mom&Me Creations Pea in a Pod hemp adjustable pouch
1 Hotsling fleece pouch

And I just sold 2 Peanut Shell pouches and a Hotsling that were too big for me now that I've lost some baby weight and a BabyHawk that I didn't care for the print of.

1 Mom and Me PnP adjustable pouch
1 Girasol
1 BBslen
1 Colibri MT

I knew I wanted something super easy but also adjustable (hopeing to avoid sizing issues) so I went hunting for an adjustable pouch. I could only find a few adjustable pouches on the market. I lucked on to a PnP on the FSOT boards and am so happy I did! I now have a second PnP on the way in a color I like better (LOL). Snapped on one level it fits DH, snapped smaller it fits me Yea!

And for days when I need a two shoulder carry I have the two wraps (one is super grippy the other isn't so much).

At 7 weeks the MT is the only one I haven't used. The other three have been used daily since DD was 2wks.
