Hypothetically, you don't own any yet. So, don't choose according to your current stash.
What would you buy? An Ergo, a nice wrap? A cool Babyhawk???
What would be your final choice?

Or if you could split the $100 and buy 2 carriers, I'd get a summerweight (light cotton, mesh, or solarveil) pouch and a mei tai. That could be done under $100.
BUT, if we were talking little baby, I would have rather had a wrap than the ring slings I did have. I like the versatility of being able to face little babies out and nursing would have been ... well, possible!
If it was pre-baby or a newborn, I would buy a wrap. If I had a 6+ month old, I would get an ergo.
Married to Michael and Mother of Jake 9, Jillianne 7, Jensen 5, Jacen 4. I've got severe osteoporosis, a fractured hip and chronic pain-so please be patient with me! Pagan,Crocheter,Reader,Homeschooler- that's me in a nutshell.
if i could spend that $100 in any way i wanted and couldn't sew, i'd probably try to find a a gently used larger bodied MT and a good ring sling.
but since i can sew, i'd try and find a used structured carrier (ergo or the like) and then use the money i had left over to make myself a MT *and* a ring sling

I just ordered a pumpkin BabyHawk last weekend. I'm now thinking of a light colored one. Maybe a caramel Babyhawk but am liking the Freehand. I just wish it had a head rest.
But for a wee baby, I am partial to a Moby wrap. But then, I've never used a wrap strapped mei tai with an infant....
From birth to (I heard of 4yo) you have great carrier that can do it all.... plus these bad boys (wraps) last for decades. (Read about some mama's in Germany getting the didys they were wore in as baby shower presents from their mothers.)
