I adored the Ergo and used it all the time. I found it particularly good for toddlers. Although in the early days, I preferred a wrap.

I got my sleepy wrap for $40 on eBay. I can pm you the name of the seller if you like?

I want to get a carrier too, there is too many , so it's confusing. At the moment I am leaning towards the mesh baby bjorn.

Definitely check out Baby Wearing Buy Sell Swap on facebook - there's a wealth of info in the docs on there and lots of pretties for sale
Your best option really is to go along to a local baby wearing meet and have a play with the different types and see what works best for you.

The world of carriers can be so confusing! I have a hug-a-bub stretchy wrap, a homemade 'woven' wrap (just a long length of muslin material), a ring sling and an ergo.
I used the stretchy hug-a-bub wrap when DS2 was a newby, up until about 3 months - then he got a bit heavy for it and it started sagging too much after a short amount of time. The hug-a-bub was really comfy, but did take a little practice to get the wrap nice and tight.
From around 3 months I had to ditch the hug-a-bub and started using the ring sling, which is quick and easy to use, but I have found it hurts my back a little after a couple of hours - so not great for wearing all day.
I've just been given a homemade woven wrap, which doesn't have any stretch and is great for when bub is a bit heavier. I've tried this one for the first time today with DS2 (3.5 months), and it's really comfy. The wraps take a little time to tie, so not the quickest option, but are the most comfy for long wears.
I also have an ergo, but it's way too bulky for a little bub. I used the ergo with DS1 from around 7 months, and liked the back carry the best.
I thought the ergo with the bees knees when I had it for DS1, but I think I'm turning into a wrap convert - they are so nice and snug. The ergo is very very supportive though, so good for big bubs and it is so simple to use/ adjust.
If it helps I've attached some pics of the different carriers I've used:
Ring Sling (DS2 at 10 weeks):
Homemade wrap (don't have a photo of the hug-a-bub, but looks similar, although the wrapping techniques are slightly different)(DS2 at 3.5 months):
Ergo back carry (DS1 around 8 months):
