Re: S/O what does your carrier stash include?

I'm a carrier underachiever. I only have an ergo, which I've used heavily for 3 kids and is getting really, really shabby.

I was thinking about getting some kind of wrap and maybe a beco gemini for this go-round. I'm not a sling person, I've never been able to make them work comfortably.

I have a new native carrier -I only liked it with my first because he was tiny, it started getting uncomfortable when baby was round 10 lbs...i have a Moby, which I love, but can be a pain to put on in public places, and an ergo for when they're a little bigger. We do still have the baby Bjorn from ds1, but neither me or my husband ever liked it...

sorry, i'm really bad at autocorrect and I don't like proof reading!

I have giant babies


So...I use my sleepy wrap (like a moby only stretchier fabric and slightly less hot) and my maya wrap ring sling for the tiny stage....

then once my baby is big enough (3 1/2-4 months) I break out the ergo...I also have a boba to alternate with the ergo when baby is old enough.

I have a Psling and Maya ring sling for the newborn stage.

At about 3 months we'll start wrapping more and be back wrapping only as soon as he can sit up. I have 4 Girasols (though two are for my girls so baby probably wont be in them much). I have a Natibaby silk blend and if it makes it to me from overseas, a Kokadi wrap. I'd like to get a Didymos linen Indio of some sort, just not sure which.

Once we hit about 2, we switch to the Boba for ups and downs and I'll still wrap during illness for cuddles.

Re: S/O what does your carrier stash include?

I used to have a ton, but have paired it down over the past year. Now I'm down to:

1 - Baby K'tan = will use a lot during newborn/infant stage. Around the house, quick trips, etc.

1- Ergo = newest purchase

1- Boba = will most likely use once she gets a little older because it's so good for toddlers, but who knows. I might end up using it over the Ergo

1- Boba Air = it stays in my car for "emergencies" and for travel when baby is older. I use it with DS now from time to time. It's easier to throw in a back than the others.

Just got an Ellevill Zara wrap. Feeling very overwhelmed about learning to use a woven though. It was just so darn pretty I had to try it.

-my beloved BBII <3 my go-to carrier
-My Boba
-An infantino wrap and tie I haven't tried yet
-A new native pouch (hoping it will work as well as the karma baby pouch I sold last year)
-a sleepy wrap

Eta: I've had a few other carriers in the past, but my karma baby pouch and my Beco were the only ones I really used. Hoping I find the woven love.
