I have a Moby, Mai Tai, and an Ergo.
I've always wanted a ringsling because they look so much easier, but is it worth it?
I'm expecting my first, so I don't have any experience.. But I have a friend who made her own ring sling and she LOVES it... There's a video on youtube:
tokenhoser:My DS is ~ 20 lb and I use my ring sling all the time. Usually just for a few minutes, but it frees up my hands to carry him and things to and from the car or just run in somewhere to get something. It's the one I leave in the car.
I agree with this. Also, I love how easy it is to put on. If I have a screaming baby who just wants to be held but I have other things to do I think the ring sling will be my go to because it's nothing to put on. And the uneven weight distribution isn't such a big deal when they're itty bitty. I think every type of carrier serves a purpose.
I still use my RS with 3 yo DD. Love it. I own about 15 carriers but my RS is my favorite.
I had the same stash plus eleventy billion wovens. I bought the RS late and regretted not having it sooner! I can't wait to use it with DD.
Here's what I'd suggest:
Moby while LO is bitty.
When s/he has the upper body strength and head control:
Ergo/MT for when you really need your hands (cooking, grocery shopping, etc)
RS for casual shopping, walks, hanging out so LO can socialize "side-by-side" with you.
I adore my ring sling. My favorite is my wrap conversion ring sling!

I love my Maya Wrap ring sling. I still use it when we go to the store, because it's so easy and fast to slip her into and out of.
Plus, it has a pocket so I can just throw my keys and wallet in there and go.
