babywear{ing}

I love the fact of babywearing, and I need to do more of it! I have three baby carriers, each one I like for different reasons, and I would like to get maybe one more... but I need to put these three to use before I invest in another one! I usually use them to take Maggie Claire on a walk to get the mail, and yesterday I actually wore her in Target for the first time.

This is me & mags yesterday when I got home from Target with mags in the baby bjorn. It's hot pink and I got it at a consignment sale for $25 when I first found out I was having a girl! :) I really like this carrier, it's my favorite because I feel the most comfortable with MC in this one. I know she is strapped in and definitely won't slip out.
This is my moby wrap. The moby is just one very very very long, stretchy piece of fabric that you tie in different ways to carry the baby. I got this from my dear friend Carissa and I love the pretty green color that it is! The next time I got out shopping, I plan on wearing this one, because I like how warm it is and you can really snuggle that baby in there! As you can see mags likes to chew on the fabric. I had it on for about 10 minutes to test it out around the house and it was already covered with slobber. {I think we might have an early teether on our hands!} This is the only way I've tried to use this carrier, but I plan on trying out some other ways too!
The last carrier I have is this munchkin jelly bean sling. I also got this one at a consignment sale before I had MC. I've only worn it this one time when I took mags on a walk around the apartment complex. I had her all bundled up b/c it was pretty cold outside. I actually liked the way that she was sitting up in it, and I plan on wearing her more in this one too! :)
Do any of you other mommies out there have a favorite baby carrier? What other one I should be looking out to buy? I could get use to this babywearing thing... especially if it means I can always have such a cute baby like Maggie Claire snuggled close to me! :)

I love my hot sling! I'm so sort torso-ed that the moby wrap and the bjorn didn't work for me!! I had holdens head in my chin the whole time! :-(

We love our Maya Sling but for long term use the Ergo is the way to go. I saw one at Charleston Repeats a couple of seasons ago, they are about $100 full price but you can use them from 4 months to 3, 4 or 5:)

We love the Baby Bjorn Synergy and the ErgoBaby. I want to get the ErgoBaby infant insert for Noelle. Normally it's for about 4 months and up to about 4 or so and can be worn on the front or back.

my fav is def the ergo. I still carry Titus in it. When he was little he went in the front and now he will ride on my back too! It's great and doesn't hurt my back! :) Happy babywearing!

I have the same Bjorn but in orange. I love it. I preferred it to the wrap when she was a babe. Love it love it love it! It's so comfy b/c there is nothing "hanging" from your shoulders that puts strain on them.
