I see all these gorgeous carriers, you, ladies have and they are all so beautiful! It seems so easy to get addicted to them.
I am just curious how many carriers do you own?

Love,
Daniela

my current "stash" is much smaller than it has been in months past. DD2 is 21mo and while we do still BW I've switched to a toddler stash.

ERGO (new in the last month and a god sent)
MTC MT (I just purchased this last month and I wish I had gone with a kozy the shoulder straps Are just a little to padded for me on this one)
Sleeping Baby Productions Lilac Indio Didymos slingified wrap RS (SBP wrap RS)

Eesti double layer silk ring sling

and a Bamboo Rebozo

I have seven and I want more. I don't own a stroller, so I am allowing myself to spend the same amount of money on carriers as I would a stroller. At this rate I could have bought the bugaboo!

6 - ring sling, pouch, mei tai, stretchy wrap, woven wrap, podegi.

On my wishlist - mei tai with wrap straps, water wrap, pouch (ours fits DP really well and sort of works with me, but really is too big), rebozo, and shorter woven. Oh, and kanga. 'Cause I gotta try me a torso back carry, now I've seen it on the T2T dvd.

So, if I had my full-ideal-stash, not counting duplicates of style ('cause then I'd need, like, 1000), I'd have about a dozen. Maybe two dozen.

Check out MDC's Trading Post, or head over to www.thebabywearer.com - you can usually find some great used carriers for really good prices.

So Jealous...: I totally want a MT
I have 4
2 OTSBH(DD's fav for sleeping/nursing in)
1 homemade water sling
1 absolutley beautiful urban pouch from cortez and co

I really want to try a MT and a Mammas Milk Invisible adjustable pouch-those look soo cool. I also wanna get a nice fleece ring sling for winter. DD is very used to ring slings and loves em to death, but I personally would like to see how we do with something a lil different. Can bigger babies (like 20lbs or so) be back carried in a MT? I have never tried it before with my ring slings-too paranoid I guess...LOL...

Oh, totally! Mei tais are GREAT for older/bigger kids, although I love 'em for newborns, too. They really excel at back carrying, which is great for the toddler crew. I have my 4mo on my back as I type.
