Any New & Exciting Must-Haves?

DS is a little over 2 1/2 and we have a new baby on the way, due in early November. I think I have all my bases covered, but I know in the world of babywearing there is something new and different being produced every day.

I have: a silk ring sling, a hotsling pouch, a stretchy wrap (hug-a-bub), an old school Babyhawk (regular body, no headrest) and an Ergo.

Obvioulsy I don't NEED a new carrier, but I've heard that there are carriers now where you can put baby in and then put the carrier on. I was thinking that might allow me to be more comfortable doing a back carry earlier on.

So, tell me what's new since DS was born. Any new carriers that you have and love? TIA!

Oooh. Marking to come back to this when I have more time.
Oh, mama! Have you checked out the new Beco carrier? THe Butterfly II? It has an integrated seat + an infant insert that comes out after the newborn stage! It is so comfortbale! Just love it for my newbie and my toddlers

Calyx has an internal seat that you strap baby into before you put them on. Haven't tried it, but it's supposed to make back carrying easier for teenies. Another I haven't tried, but think is innovative is Scootababy. O & A soft structured carriers are getting a lot of buzz over on TBW. I'm getting one through the co-op that's running now. Also, I think your stash is missing a woven wrap. I am really finding the wrapping love lately.
I think a simple SSC like AngelPack or O&A would be a nice addition. Butterfly II is more infant to toddler friendly so that would be a really great addition as well. So many to list!
Ooooh! Thanks so much mamas! I just knew there had to be something new that I could justify adding to my stash. I most definately will check out your suggestions. The Butterfly II sounds divine!

And you are right that I am missing a woven wrap. When DS was an infant I went to a local babywearing meeting and the topic that month was wraps. I totally drooled and fell in love with how beautiful they were, but I just never worked up the nerve to get past the learning curve involved. I was afraid I'd spend money on a woven wrap and just end up grabbing an "easier" carrier all of the time. Maybe I should invest in something not too expensive or even try making myself a rebozo and really put some effort into wrapping with the new baby.

Ok, off to check out some links! Thanks again everybody!

eta: Ok, I just clicked on the link for the scootababy and I think I need one. Like, NOW. Except it is for 12lbs and up. But it looks soooo comfy.
