Post pictures of your favorite finds (either ones you own or ones you wish you could).

I think this one is super cute for a boy



This is one I saved from my last baby. I love it


After trying ring slings, moby wraps, mai tais, and pouch slings, I eventually ended up settling on something more traditional (beco baby carriers) BUT I do still like to have options, so I'll have a few wraps, too

This looks neat, too. It's a versatile shirt that can also be used as a baby carrier!

This is the mei tai I own, it was all I could afford at the time, but I love it, especially for the price
Amazon.com: Infantino Sash Mei Tai Carrier Black/Gray: Baby

This is my Ergo:
Amazon.com: Ergo Baby BC2EPK1 Galaxy Grey Baby Carrier with Galaxy Lining And LED Safety Reflector Light: Baby

but this is my favourite print by far
Amazon.com: Ergo Baby BCEPR001NL Original Baby Carrier - Night Sky: Baby

This is the ring sling I own (though I can't find my pattern), I'll be using it with the new baby

I also own a black moby, but it's boring to look at

Pics from my phone is too hard. But I have an Ergo sport or performance (the more breathable kind), it is basic black/grey, a Boba (also grey), a Maya ring sling (neutral stripes), and a bright blue Dolcino woven wrap that I am excited to use a lot when baby is just a newborn.

^^Me either! I had to stop because my big guy only likes front-carries...and that ain't happening right now

I can't do pics easily either (iPad is hateful in that regard). But I have Grey Galaxy (Ergo), a bright red maya sling, a blue/silver bamboo print Mei Tai, and a lime green w/ paisley print panel and white solarveil Kinderpack. The Kinderpack print suits me so much, it's just bright and fun. And fairly gender neutral. I also have two wraps, one is a neutral yellow with bluebirds and one is pretty girly...a Natibaby jonquils. I don't need another carrier, wrap, or otherwise. But I would love, love, love lime waves...swoon!!

Most of mine are super plain so DH can wear them, too. We have 3 Hotslings (natural hemp, black/black floral, and pink), 2 Moby's (one tan and one black), and 2 Ergos (organic chocolate and grey/black performance). My only print is this Beco Gemini that I really love:

Shen, which water wrap do you have? I'm trying to figure out how to do the pool with 3-under-3, and I'm pretty sure it will have to involve wearing one

I ended up getting a pricier one... Gypsy Mama Water Wrap... it just looked so versatile! And even as a sunshade it would be awesome. I am going to use it for showering in the beginning and then also at the beach and pool.

*sigh* I'll leave this window open to remind myself the next time I have a free moment to post a stash shot. And I'll dig up photos of carriers that have passed through here. There have been quite a few.

Okay, what's currently at my house:

LR/TB: Taylor Made mesh ring sling, SBP BBSlen Pineapple ring sling, a visiting Girasol Big Sur, Didymos aqua waves 3, Storch Leo Rose 4, Neobulle Margot 6, SBP purple linen ring sling, baby sized Bambeoo, WAHM mei tai, Mei Tai Baby, Ergo, Beanslings mei tai, and WAHM double gauze ring sling.
And Storch Anna too but she's missing from the above shot because my son took her to bed with him.

Oh and 2 toy carriers!
Beanslings SSC:



Left the house just today (sold)- Jade Candy 5


Past carriers:
Ellaroo mei tai-
Comfy Joey linen ring sling -
Angel Pack LX -
Baby sized w/ solarveil Bamberoo -
And a moby wrap and a DIY gauze wrap that I'm too lazy to search for photos of.

Am I forgetting something? Probably.

I have a mesh ring sling. It's fantastic in the water. I used it last summer at the beach and in a pool with my son. He was 25/26 lbs last summer and it was great! I wouldn't want to use it on dry land for long amounts of time with a kiddo that big (it was fine for the walk from the car to the beach and back), but it was great in the water! I do use it for showering when traveling.

I don't know what I want next, but I do have money for another wrap burning a hole in my pocket.

^^Lol! It's an addiction Im in love with your stash. I really want more wraps, but I didn't get that far into wrapping Kieran before he became a total PITA to wrap. So we just use SSCs for him. But I keep eying more wraps that I love. I really would love a Bamberoo as well. I hear such great things about them. But having a nice collection of SSCs means I don't "need" one.

Oh, I am thinking I need a water sling/wrap this summer too. I'll have a newbie for most of the summer and it feels necessary Or maybe I am just rationalizing it is necessary! Lol.
