    I got called a sling hyena the other day at a different board. I would think it's an apt term for me!:P

    In my defense, I am giving several of these carriers to my friend who's having a baby in a few months.....so I will be ubder more manageable numbers at that point....

    I'm just starting out, but we have:

    Baby Bjorn (might return this as DS doesn't seem to like it)
    Kelty Kangaroo (haven't tried this yet, looks like the Bjorn)
    Kelty Elite Backpack

    And on the way...
    KK Adj Fleece pouch in Glacier Ice
    Toile Zolo

    Can't wait to try these slings...DS is a high needs baby who loves to be held!

    I have, in order of purchase:

    two Theodore Bean carriers (one leather, one not, that I won on eBay for a song but I wasn't sure I was going to win the auction so I had bids on both of them). Hubby uses this for short trips to the store. It hurts his back. He has agreed to try a sling someday when we have time to fiddle with it.

    Ring Sling from Mothers Grove that I got on eBay. This is the one I reach for most often, although I now know it is too small for me since the tail doesn't even hang to my waist. But I like it that way. I have noticed that as she gets heavier, it slips and I have to keep tightening it. So this is why I am about to get a Zolo.

    Kangaroo Korner Adjustable Fleece Pouch. This was my favorite when she was a newborn, and I still reach for it in the house (when the a/c is on) and she wants to sleep on me.

    New Native Baby Carrier in the lightweight lavender color. I was looking for something to replace the KKAFP when it got hot outside, and this worked. But I find that I like the ring sling better now that I have practiced with it more.

    Ring Sling from eBay in a really big size, this tail hangs to my ankles. I was searching auctions and saw this one about to end really cheap so I got it. It is in a natural muslin color and I thought maybe I would tie-dye it, but I am afraid I would look like the Partridge Family Bus coming down the sidewalk in it with as much fabric as there is. :)

    Maya Wrap Pouch. I just like the pretty colors. :) I just got this on eBay recently and have not used it yet, but it feels like it will be scratchy.

    Soon to be coming: Zolorwear cotton sling. I am waiting for some fabric swatches from her so I can choose my color but it will probably be the natural.

    What I am coveting next: An Ergo-like carrier for hip carries and back carries when she is older, or maybe a Sutemi. And of course a Didy. Oh and I will need a mesh sling or a solarveil before I go to my mom's in Florida for Christmas since they have a pool.

    New Native - enjoyed this while the baby was small, though could never get over him looking squished, not that he ever minded.

    OTSBH - Never got use to this sling. Couldn't get it positioned comfortably and hated the padding.

    Baby Bjorn - Can't believe I forgot about this one. We use it constantly. DS likes it best for when we are most active and while he is still small, he fits in perfectly. However he is growing rapidly and the Maya and the Zolo will outlast this carrier due to weight limitations.

    Maya Wrap - Didn't touch this sling until I saw a women at church using hers and then chased her down so she could show me in person how to use it. Now I love this sling. Huge learning curve but really offers wonderful flexibility and functionality.

    Silk Zolo - Just received it yesterday and have yet to try it. Looks so much easier to use and the fabric just makes me feel dressed up and less bohemian. Can't wait to give it a twirl! Might get a cotton one if I love it as much as everyone says I will.

    1. OTSBH - camouflage; my husband chose this for himself as the first baby carrier we got
    2. Baby Bjorn - have to admit that baby and I both like this
    3. Girasol (just got this and am LOVING it!)
    4. silk Zolo - just received yesterday; looks great and seems way more adjustable than the OTSBH

    Wish list:
    a. KK AFP for fall
    b. cotton Zolo for right now (where's my credit card?!?)
    c. Didymos or Girasol in a more neutral color

    Who knew this would be so addictive?? Thank goodness my hubby is kind of smitten too. He wishes they made a Girasol in camouflage...

    KK fleece pouch
    Zolo sling in cotton

    Hoping these two will be versitle enough (and yet different enough) to take care of my baby carrying needs. I returned a Baby Bjorn unused after reading on these boards. :)
