You do not need many carriers.... one will do if that's what you choose.
You are still a babywearer if you use just one low budget carrier, a handful of mid priced carriers or a room full of Uppies and Obi's!
"Why do people spend that much money on a piece of fabric? Are they insane?
We’re all mad here, Alice. Many view wraps as art pieces and collectors items. It’s kind of like cars. Some people buy a Porsche. Some people collect Corvettes. Others drive a Corolla, some take the bus or walk. You can babywear on any budget. One isn’t better than the other. It’s just a hobby for some people. My mom collects things with apples on it. I think that’s a little weird, just like I’m sure she thinks collecting wraps are weird. Maybe collecting things period is a bit weird, who knows."
Whether you wear your baby in sack cloth or cloth of gold, it doesn't matter! What matters is that your baby is being held close to you and your arms are free to do other things; make a sandwich, catch up with email, read your favourite blog :), push a grocery cart, potty your toddler, walk the dog, make the dinner............ you get the picture!
