I have a but of a baby wearing addiction too and have bought something for each baby!! I have the bjorn which kills my back. So the when I had my son I got the Moby which was nice because I had to wear my son all the time when he was a newborn. But, it was definitely a pain to have to plan to tie it and drive to where I was going and hoping that it was just right to hold baby comfortably while shopping. So this time around I got and Ergo for Christmas and I'm totally psyched to use it!
I have a homemade version of a Moby. I used it some with Lucas but since I sold my stroller and don't want to buy a new one, I'll be using it a lot more! I'm not all crazy into it like some of the moms in my homeschool group who look down on anyone who doesn't baby wear 24/7. To me, this time around with kids who will be 8 and 6, it's going to be a heck of a lot easier to be hands free!
It is something I am considering, to save having to get a double pushchair. But in the country I live in, it's not really that popular. I certainly have never seen somebody with a sling or anything similar. But I don't want to buy a double pushchair. My youngest will be 2 years 4 months when this one is born so will still need to use the pushchair quite often.
I'm still wearing my 13 month old in my moby. I perch him on my hip so he doesn't sit on my 14 week bump I love baby wearing too!

I have an Ergo carrier and I have used it almost daily since my 3rd dd was born. In fact, it was so worn out by the time I had Aidan, that a few months ago I actually had to buy a new one, and I thought they were pretty indestructible! I will definitely be wearing this next baby. In fact, I have been known to wear one on front and one on back before. I have another carrier similar to the Ergo, but cheaper, and not as nice. It does the job though.

I have thought about putting Dom in it. But I tend to use the stroller a lot for him when we shop to save my back. Though I really should try it on him. How do you feel when you put K in it?
