Best Twin Carrier 2022

Best Twin Carrier 2022

 

Twin baby carriers and slings that allow you to carry both babies at once are in high demand. Twin parents, as much as any other parent, look forward to being able to bond and connect with their newborns. Twin babies need just as much connection as any other baby. The logistics are just a little bit trickier with 2 babies!

 

Do you have twins, and would like to carry them both at the same time? Great! We stock lots of twin carriers and twin suitable carriers and slings. We stock twin carriers that allow you to carry both babies in one sling or carrier. If you’d prefer to use two separate slings to carry the twins independently, then we have curated a fantastic selection that work to wear one and carry one baby, or wear two to carry both babies.

Some twin parents will prefer to carry both babies in separate slings. Post-partum bodies need care and time to recover. It is more difficult to achieve safe positioning with 2 newborns in one sling, and we would usually suggest booking a consultation to receive the very best one to one advice and guidance on doing so.

Carrying both babies in one sling, from birth is entirely possible though. The most accessible way to do this is by using a stretchy wrap. This is possible usually in the first few weeks only. After this time, carrying both babies in one sling, on the front of your body will be a difficult to achieve safely and comfortably.

 

Twin parents, as much as any other parent, look forward to being able to bond and connect with their newborns.

 

From 3 or 4 months upwards the options expand greatly. From this age, twin parents can use carriers that allow you carry both babies at once, such as the Minimonkey Twin Carrier.

You can also choose to use other slings for example one long woven wrap - this involves some technique and learning, but it does allow you to carry both babies at the same time, yet in a safe and comfortable way.

Woven wraps can be used 2 at a time - one to carry a baby on the front and one to carry a baby on the back.

You can use the following carriers to carry twins - either at the same time or separately:

  • Ring Slings
  • Woven Wraps
  • Half Buckle Carriers
  • Meh Dais
  • Buckle Carriers

Best Twin Carrier for Carrying Both Babies - MiniMonkey

 

Best Twin Carrier for Carrying Both Babies - MiniMonkey
The Minimonkey Twin Carrier allows you to comfortably carry both babies on your front.

 

The Minimonkey Twin Carrier is fantastic - it's a structured buckle carrier which allows you to comfortably carry both babies on your front.

Each baby is seated in a ‘pouch’, with their knees higher than their bottom, and their backs supported. This is the ideal position for baby (think capital M-shape, from the heel, up, down, up, down).

Why We Love The Minimonkey Twin Carrier:

  • Suitable for babies from 2-3 months and older babies (max 12kgs / baby).
  • Comfortable – the wide shoulder straps in combination with the waistband divides the weight of the babies over your whole upper body, giving superb comfort and support for you.
  • Ergonomic  – babies can be carried in the M-Position with the neck and back fully supported.
  • Easy to use – intuitive and easy to use. After adjusting the carrier in the right size, the babies are placed in the pouches and tightened with a small buckle. You can do this by yourself. The carrier is designed to be as simple as possible to use.
  • Safe - the waistband prevents the baby from slipping out of the carrier.

Best Stretchy Wrap for Carrying Both Twins at Once - Love Radius Stretchy Wrap

We love this stretchy wrap for twins. The unique jersey knit fabric has a density and softness that is firm enough and soft enough to carry twins, both at the same time.

It’s such a fantastic option if you want a soft, supportive stretchy that will last for at least 1 year (when carrying one baby).

  • Perfect twin option - absolutely the best stretchy option for twins.
  • Available in an amazing range of colours.
  • Super easy to use, super comfy & soft.

Best Stretchy Wrap for Carrying Twins Individually - Hanababy Wrap

If you’d prefer to carry your twins in 2 separate stretchy wraps, then we love the Hana Wrap.

It's super-light with 2-way stretch. It comes in an organic cotton & Bamboo blend, and there are non organic options too. The Hana stretchy is perfect for spring & summer and it’s got just the right amount of stretch for easy wrapping.

  • Suitable from newborn (even smaller newborns).
  • 100% GOTS Certified Organic cotton & bamboo.
  • Easy to use pre-tie wrap.
  • Perfect for spring & summer.
  • Tie it on & keep it on all day (if you need/want!).
  • Machine washable.

Best Ring Sling for Twin Carrying - Didymos Didysling

Ring Slings can be used two at a time, one across each side of the body, either with the rings at the front centre of your body, or on your back.

Ring Slings can be used two at a time, one across each side of the body.

 

Ring slings are super practical – once threaded through the rings, they can be tightened and loosened easily and then loosened without having to retie or restart. The biggest advantage to using 2 separate slings is that you can also use them separately and are therefore flexible for each twin’s needs.

Twins can easily be carried crosswise in two Didyslings, with the second sling placed over the back and under the first sling on the chest side. In this way, one twin sits on each hip and you can easily take one child out and put her down while the other can remain in the ring sling.

Best Woven Wrap for Twin Carrying - Didymos Wraps

Woven wraps are super-versatile. You can either use one long woven wrap or 2 shorter woven wraps.

 

Best Woven Wrap for Twin Carrying - Didymos Wraps

 

When using one long wrap, we suggest opting for a size 7. This length will allow for both twins to be carried on the front of your body, off-centre. This does require some skill and practice, so we do suggest popping an email over to book a consultation to learn the required method and technique.

You can also use two separate, shorter wraps to carry one baby on the front, and one baby on the back.

Carrying Twins Individually

Carrying twins individually can be the comfiest option for everyone. Whether you’re sharing the carrying load with family or friends or carrying both twins on your front and back, using two individual slings or carriers can be more flexible and versatile.

The options below work both with two of each style, for example two meh dai carriers, or any combination for example a meh dai and an onbu.

Meh Dais

The Meh Dai - it’s like a wrap, but it’s a carrier. Use two, or one in combination with another style.

If you struggle with buckles or want something just a little less ‘backpack-y’ then this is a top-pick. It’s lightweight and unstructured.

  • Newborn to toddlerhood +.
  • Wrap Conversions - super soft.
  • Amazing option with a small baby & a bigger baby.
  • Fantastic option post-c-section.
  • Front, back & hip positioning.
  • Fantastic option for carrying twins.
  • Machine washable.

Buckle Carriers

If you want to opt for two buckle carriers then go for the Integra Solar. It’s lightly padded in the shoulders straps with an unpadded waist - lightweight for the win! If you’re opting for two different carriers, then match the Integra Solar with the Hana Expand - it’s a fantastic combination.

Half Buckle Carriers

Half buckles work amazingly for babies of all ages! Easy to use & quick to put on, they can be much comfier than many structured options, and easier to use two as they are versatile.

They are all wrap conversions, fully adjustable & super comfy for baby and you.
