Re: wearing twins (or more than one child) help needed...

I could wear both my boys in a Moby wrap until the bigger twin started to kick his legs and consequently kick his brothers feet. Once that happened, I switched to only wearing one at a time.

Wow..You mommas that figured out the art of wearing both are awesome!! With both sets I could not do it at all. The first set for numerous reasons as one has issues. Second set I tried, just could not get it right!!!

Absolutely doable!
I don't have twins, but for a while I was watching my friends dd 5 days a week and I wore her and my ds all the time. I usually did one in a wrap and one in my Patapum (like an Ergo) or Mei Tai. Wrap on the front and other carrier on the back is the most comfy IMO once they leave the newborn stage. When they're still tiny you can also do them both in one Moby wrap (or any stretchy wrap).
There is TONS of info on wearing 2 (or more, one mom successfully wore all of her triplets!) over on Thebabywearer.com in the wearing more than one forum.

I have twins on the way, but before we had even conceived, I had been watching a friends AP'd DS who was used to slinging, and had my daughter (same age) who also loved it, and I ended up just slinging them both at the same time pretty frequently.

I used the Yamo in a Back Carry and a Rockin' Baby Sling for one in the front/side.

I'm thrilled to wrap the twins though! Great thread!

I've done one in the Beco on back and carrying the other one in front, but I couldn't walk long distances like that.

Re: wearing twins (or more than one child) help needed...

I just tried on the double (one back and one front) beco the other day with my 12 week old babies and it was comfortable. It was only for a short period of time, but I am looking into locating some gently used ones.
