i've been wearing my babies since #1 was born, and after #2 had a HUGE collection with 4 mei tais, a bjorn, a maya wrap, and a moby wrap. i was done, though, and sold or donated all but one mei tai (a kozy). i've bought two pouch slings and have the one mei tai. and I WANT MORE!!! i want to try a babyhawk, and i need more patterns to accessorize all my outfits. after all, baby IS my cutest accessory, right? lol!

so, is that bad? how many carriers to all y'all have stockpiled?

You're not alone and your collection isn't that bad at all ;)

I don't wear DD anymore, but I do anticipate having a second, so I still won't part with mine, even to lend...I don't lend baby stuff! it's a gift or nothing :) but anyway.....

2 moby, 1 babyhawk meitai, beco butterfly 2, pikkolo, REI Piggyback (DH does still use this one on occasion). not a ton, but I do plan on buying a few more when/if #2 comes along :)

I haven't even given birth to our 1st child yet and I've already got 2 pouches and 3 ring slings!

I honestly couldn't tell you how many carriers I had come through my house. I've bought and sold so many, plus did some temp trades to try out different styles. Most of my carriers are boxed up now .

I have a Silly Goose MT, Didymos Jim Petrol wrap, Olives and Applesauce SSC, Angel Pack SSC, fleece pouch, HUGS ring sling. Ummmmm, another couple out on loan and I can't remember which ones.

My go to carriers are the Silly Goose and O&A. I loved my BabyHawk, but the straps became uncomfortable when baby grew into a toddler.

Now I want to go pet my carriers... lol!

I usually have about 10. I only have 8 now and I'd like to replace a linen sling that I loaned out. I have 2 girasol wraps, a moby, a didymos, a ten toes click buckle tai, a mei tai that I made, an onbuhimo, a pouch and a SBP tie dyed slingified didymos.

yay for enabling!!! so i've gone ahead and ordered a custom babyhawk & an ergo sport (which is, ostensibly, because it's suitable for dh, lol!) mei tais are my favorite.

I have 7 woven wraps.

I've had other wraps come and go, but 7 seems to be my magic number.
