I'm the dork with 10+.

I have 3 three meter gauze cloths for wraps (my other favorite)
I have 2 two meter gauze cloths for sling wraps (don't use much)
I have 2 new native baby carriers (my favorite)
I have 1 ring sling (don't use)
I have 1 snuggli (don't use)
I have 1 infantino snuggli type carrier (it hurts)
I have 1 old style backpack (just bought it from goodwill- haven't used it yet)

That's my style though- overkill
3 of them are going on ebay in the next week though

I think I can give you a run for your money with 9 carriers! Here's what I have:

1 mayawrap ring sling (don't use anymore since I found pouches)
1 homemade ring sling (as a backup for the mayawrap I no longer use)
2 kangaroo korner fleece pouches (one for me, one for hubby)
1 hotsling cotton pouch (because it's too hot for fleece)
1 frame backpack for my hubby when we hike
1 Sachi Mei Tai (I wanted a soft back carrier)
1 gypsymama water wrap for taking the kids swimming (absolutely LOVE it!)
1 Ellaroo Maija 4.7m wrap that I just got this week

I didn't need the ellaroo wrap, but I loved my water wrap (it was my first experience with wraps) so much that I wanted to get a woven wrap. I've only had the ellaroo a couple of days, but so far I really like it and find myself using it more than anything else, except for the really quick trips when I use a pouch.

I don't have a problem....really...I can stop anytime....LOL!

Oops, had to change my vote from 2 to 6 b/c I forgot about all the ones we don't use. Plus, I ordered a new one just today, so I thought I'd count it, too.

I have:

Maya Wrap ring sling -- used quite a bit this spring

Mama Kangaroo mesh pouch -- use all the time now that it's hot -- love it!

Snugli frontpack carrier -- used some when DD#2 was tiny (DD#1 hated it), but not anymore

another frontpack carrier -- tried once, never used again, liked Snugli better

frame backpack -- DH wanted it to carry toddler, but Meg will not ride in it, so it's sitting in the basement unused. (Meg rode in it maybe twice, but wasn't happy either time.)

just ordered a Mei Tai carrier -- can't wait to get it!
