How many carriers do you own

What carrier(s) do you have? Which is your favorite or the one you reach for the most.

I have a cheapie ergo style for ebay.
A mei tai in black and white.
Two action baby carriers one in Expedition and another in Memories.

I reach for my action baby carriers first.

I have a Beco Butterfly2 that I used all the time, a ring sling I use when it will only be for a short time and I want something compact (like in the diaper bag), and a wrap a friend made me when I had my first son which I love for little babies (but I lent to another mama and her 1 year old stretched it out pretty NAND so I don't really use it anymore
I had a homemade Mei Tai too that I loved for DS 1 but sold after I got the Beco and found out another mama I know really wanted to try out a Mei tai.

I have 8 that I use.

Two wraps, a super old, floppy, pre-pocket Hopp that is my favorite and a Vat Maruyama that is fantastically thin and breathable for our hot weather.

For mei tais, I have a really old an ugly OMT wrap conversion made from another super old Hopp and I will carry my grand kids in that thing. It lives in the house - the rest of my carriers live in the car. This OMT is perfect for any kind of snuggling we need in the house, front or back carries. It's the one in my avi.

I also have Mei Tai Baby and a Freehand, which are great for easy on and off running in stores.

Those are the ones I use on a regular basis. I have a wrap converted ring sling that I mostly keep because it's gorgeous, a fleece Hotsling and a solarveil Hotsling. I love the fleece for really cold days in and out and the solarveil is good for the pool or beach. But, I really prefer two shoulder carries so they don't see a lot of use.

I have another random pouch or two that I don't fit in anymore and a stretchy wrap that I only use in the first month with a newbie, but I didn't count those.

I love carriers, and I am always window shopping for more. If only I had a PayPal tree!

Re: How many carriers do you own

uh oh....
wraps--moby & 2 wovens
pouches--at least 6 (but 2 I use regularly)
ring slings--at least 8 (but only 5 are used regularly)
mei tais--12 that I can think of (5 that I regularly reach for, lately 2 at a time with DS2 on front/DS1 on back)
other--2 onbuhimos, 2 podegis (1 wide/1 narrow), 2 rebozos

Right now the carriers getting the most use are my footprint mt, my tan ring sling, and my moby, with my black rs and my bamboo print mt being close seconds.

Sleepy wrap
Maya wrap RS
Tahoe girasol

Right now I am still learning wrapping so I'm pretty much only reaching for my woven so I can practice. Also it's so beautiful and I love to wear it! But I do look forward to breaking the Ergo out when babe is big enough.

Re: How many carriers do you own

I think I have a serious problem... We lost 3 carriers in the move so I had to replace those (my maya wrap, scootababy, and babyhawk) so I got a new maya wrap and scootababy. I am sure we will find them next time we move. Other carriers include: hotslings (not a big fan seems so easy and I can't get it to work... perhaps I have the wrong size), beco which I only like for back carry because the front carry sits weird on my shoulder blades, a moby wrap, a different wrap I got on etsy, a taylor ring sling (also not a fan and I never use it), and my new current favorite I got at the sample sale is my linen sakura bloom ring sling with silk edging... so pretty.

Glad to know I am not the only one with issues!

Re: How many carriers do you own

I have three:

organic Ergo
BabyHawk mei tai

I also have a ring sling, on loan from a friend.

I've stashed and destashed several times, but I'm pretty content with what I have. I just wish I hadn't sold my SBP ring sling and Baby K'Tan . I love those with newbies!
