Hey ladies!

Any baby wearers out there? I was wondering if any of us have thought of a genius way to wear both babies! I used the Moby when both babies were little but now the girls are too big for the twin hold. I want to wear both babies in a hip hold somehow. Maybe two Mobys?! This would be awesome when taking my step-daughter out to the bus stop. Lets brain storm! Holding two squirmy babies that I can't set down anywhere yet is NO GOOD! lol.

I was thinking the same thing the other day......when DH is home this weekend I am going to try having one baby in the moby in the front and one baby on the back in a mei tai. It shouldn't be too bulky since the mei tai is mostly long fabric ties - I just don't know if I could get them all on by myself which would defeat the purpose of doing

MaxiMom Twin or Triplet Baby Carrier


maybe somethign like this? though it looks kind of expensive, it might work. I tried to wear my boys, but it just wasn't working for me.

I couldn't get it to work either. Just the logistics of was too much. Especially without another adult to help. By the time I had one in position, the other one was upset and somehow they just wouldn't calm down and my nerves just couldn't take it.

i know someone w/ the maxi mom carrier. she hated it. couldn't get both kids in and on without help, so she got rid of it.

if someone figures this out, i'd love to see pics. right now i just carry one in the sling and ine in my arm, but 2 free hands would be wonderful.

I've seen some pics of two slings...but I think I read it may be easiest to do that with two different type slings so one hangs a little lower. I don't know... I think I need the girls to rest on my hips in order for baby wearing to be effective at this point.. I'm a little uncomfortable with one on my back still.... They seem too far out of reach. I havent' tried it though so who knows! I'll let you girls know if I find a sling situation that works well.
