Best Twin Baby Carrier For Extra Strong Parents

If you have twins you may be feeling that baby wearing could be beyond you. Twice the baby… twice the weight… just one parent.

While it would be nice to always have the option to split the load; one for Mom; one for Dad.

The fact is life will rarely work out like this. There is always the option of a Tandem Stroller, but if you want that nurturing closeness to your baby then a Twin Baby Carrier could be the best option for you.

The benefits of baby wearing are immense and have been the subject of numerous studies - it would be a shame if you were to miss out on this experience due to the additional load of having two babies. 

Unfortunately the range of good options for baby carriers specifically designed for twins are very limited. There is only one manufacturer – TwinGo – that we feel comfortable enough with to recommend to you here that can accomodate different price points.

Did I mention that in an ideal world you would just split the load between the parents? The TwinGo Baby Carrier has you covered for both scenarios! 

The clever design of this carrier allows the carrier to be split into two fully functioning carriers. When you are flying solo it clips back together and allows one on the front, and one on the back.

Genius!

Each carrier will hold up to 45lbs and will suit anyone from 4’11” and above. While your babies may outgrow the double carry function over time, you will still have the option to use it as a single carrier for many years before they outgrow the recommended limit (70lbs when joined together). Unless you are up for the 70lb baby wearing challenge of course…

With the material being the same as what is used in mountaineering gear you can be sure this will stand the test of time.

The design is very comfortable and distributes the weight well across your frame. You may surprise yourself with the load that you can handle, and find strength you never knew you had.

Alternative Options

We have included this for the sake of comparison, as there are just not many available options on the market. 

We do not recommend them as a top choice for you and your babies, unless the price point is a necessary compromise.

This boasts the ability to reconfigure the carrier into six different positions. To us this seems like an unnecessary complication for something that could already be challenging if not done right.

You have the option to carry both babies at the front, but unless you have a super strong back we feel that you are asking for trouble long term in doing this.

You also have the option for one at the front and one at the back so you have more of a steady foundation to balance the weight. This may be suitable for Dad if he is to do most of the baby wearing, or if your babies just don’t like being worn at the back.

Pro

  • You can position both babies at your front

Con

  • Complicated design that can be confusing to use

Final Word

While the idea of having two babies strapped to you at once can be intimidating, if the weight distribution is done correctly you may surprise yourself with how well you can handle the load. 

So don't underestimate yourself! 

The flexibility in the design of the TwinGo range is a real stand out in this space. It is under serviced, but having twins is unique to only a select (and lucky?) few.  

Being able to split a baby carrier into two separate, high quality, carriers is the pinnacle of versatility you could expect from an item like this.

Then you get the added bonus of some extra cheesy him and her photo opps!
