the first one I got was a ring sling made bya local mom. Abigail didn't like it as a baby, but likes it now. Sophia needed it as an infant, so I was glad I kept it, even though it really hurts my back and I feel so constrained in it.
The second one I got was a SnugliI from another mother who's baby had outgrown it. It's for babies up to 20 pounds. Once Sophia was interested more in the world, she really liked this one because she could easily look out. My back likes it better, too, since it's more centered.

I have:
  • 4.1 m Storchenwiege Ulli
  • 4m Didymos Indio Terra dyed green
  • 2.2 m Didymos Indio tricolor blue
  • Bara Barn druvor
  • Vintage Gypsy Mama Bali Baby Breeze in canary yellow that only goes to the beach or stays in the house. It's way too bright for my tastes

It's all wraps as I decided early on that MTs weren't for me. However I am getting intrigued by podegais. I can't justify buying another carrier to dh now that my dd is 13 mo and running all over the place. Maybe if I can figure out how to use my sewing machine, I can make one using an old bed sheet?

Have you gotten to use this much yet?!! I have been breaking mine in and I LOVE IT! When I first got it I was thinking, 'what am I doing adding another MT to my collection....': but seriously, this MT is so comfy! I have the traditional shoulder straps; yours must have the clips?

I have a

- maya wrap (well loved by my dd)
- WHAM sling (so comfy... )
- Freehand mei tai (beautiful, but small..)
- Babiesbeyondborders MT (perfect for my girl and my baby)
- Bundle of Love pouch (for my diaper bag)

I have gotten rid of all the pouch slings I used when DD was tiny, so now I only have:

An Ergo (used daily!)
Two me-made mei tais

I'm also in the middle of sewing a soft structured carrier (sort of a homemade Ergo, but simpler and lighter).

I have 5, but use 3:

Bjorn (haven't used in months)
OTSBH (love for quick trips in and out of the car and DH uses for naps)
mei tai made by me (I love this one--I'm really proud of how cute and comfy it is!)
Ergo (my all-around favorite)
frame backpack (I hate it. It digs into my back and hurts!)

I have about 10. Most are wraps. Im just getting ready for the baby. I dont plan on buying a stroller. So I rather buy carriers. They are way too addictive. I still need to buy a MT.

for a baby less than 20 lbs, which one would you pick? I'm brand new to this baby wearing (as well as mothering!!: ), but really want to try it. We don't have the money to buy more than one or two and would love some advice!! Thanks!

I have a custom pouch, a homemade ring sling, an ergo, a homemade MT & a BabyHawk.

I use the Ergo the most but the BH is my favorite b/c it's just so pretty.

I also have a Maya wrap pouch that doesn't fit right & a metal frame back carrier someone gave me, but I find it uncomfortable. I had a babybjorn w/ dd#1, but never liked it so gave it away.

This thread make me feel sane for having what my dh says is "too many carriers"

sorry, just read if I had to pick one. the mei tai, definately. DH agrees, says the ergo doesn't fit him right. he is tall and very broad. I like the "mei tai baby" meitaibaby.com, he likes the baby hawk.

Not sure, here's the list:

1 Zolowear Silk Ring Sling
1 BH MT
(I use the first two the most - almost exclusively)
1 frame back-pack carrier
1 Hotsling Fleece (only got it b/c it was a great deal)
1 MayaWrap RS (possibly going out on loan)
1 CuddlyWrap
1 H2H Ring Sling (out on loan)
1 OTSBH (stuffed in closet - anyone interested? it's a large)

So that makes 8.

Perhaps getting an Ergo as well. Have an 18+lb 5.5 month old.

1 Maya Wrap
1 unknown ring sling (don't like it much though)
1 unknown mesh ring sling
1 unknown beaded pouch (much too small for me to ever wear)
2 New Natives (1 medium, 1 large)
1 hotsling size 6 (I think the previous owner shrunk it)
1 Bebetai mei tai
1 Ergo

I know these don't count on AP sites, but they were before I got my Maya Wrap:
2 Infantinos
1 Snugli
