Q:

What are some guidelines for babywearing in newborn twins or multiples, and are there specific carriers that work well for this?

Hi everyone,

I'm expecting twins in a few months and I'm interested in babywearing to help me manage caring for two newborns at once. I've done some research and found that babywearing can be a great solution for twins, but I'm not sure where to start.

I'd love to know some guidelines for babywearing specifically for newborn twins or multiples. Are there any safety concerns or things I should be aware of when carrying two babies at once? And are there any specific carriers that work well for twins or multiples?

I appreciate any advice or insights you can share on this topic! Thank you.

Hello there,

I'm a first-time mom of two-month-old twins and have been exploring babywearing as a way to bond with my babies and make my day-to-day tasks more manageable. I'm still new to this, but I wanted to share some of my experiences so far.

When it comes to babywearing twins, there are a few things to keep in mind. Firstly, it's important to choose a carrier that provides enough support for your babies' neck and head. I personally use a Moby Wrap, which I find to be comfortable for both me and my babies.

Another thing I've learned is that it's important to make sure your babies are positioned correctly in the carrier. This can help prevent any discomfort or harm to their developing bones and muscles. There are plenty of online resources available to help with this, but it may also be helpful to seek advice from a professional babywearing consultant.

Lastly, it's important to listen to your body and adjust accordingly. Babywearing can be tiring, so taking breaks when needed and stretching can help prevent any discomfort or strains.

Overall, babywearing has been a great way for me to bond with my twins and keep them close while juggling the demands of caring for two newborns. I hope you find this helpful and good luck on your babywearing journey!

Hi there!

Congratulations on your upcoming arrival of twins! I am a mom of two-year-old twins and I can share from my personal experience that babywearing has been a lifesaver for me.

When it comes to babywearing twins, there are few guidelines to keep in mind. Firstly, it's important to carry each baby separately and avoid wearing them together in the same carrier. This ensures that each baby has enough space and support in the carrier.

Secondly, it's recommended to use a carrier that provides enough head and neck support for newborns. I personally used a Moby Wrap when my twins were newborns because it provided great support and was comfortable for both me and my babies. As they got older, I switched to a TwinGo Carrier which allowed me to wear them both at once when I needed to.

Overall, I found that babywearing allowed me to bond with my babies, kept them close and calm, and made it easier to manage day-to-day tasks with two babies. I highly recommend giving it a try!

Hi there,

I am also a parent of newborn twins and have been exploring babywearing as a way to manage caring for two babies at once. While I'm still new to this, I can share some of my experiences so far.

When it comes to babywearing twins, as others have mentioned, it's important to use a carrier that offers support for their neck and head, and that distributes their weight evenly across your body. I tried a few different carriers before finding the one that worked best for me, which was a Baby Bjorn Baby Carrier.

One thing to keep in mind is that babywearing can be tiring, especially when carrying two babies at once. Investing in a carrier with a comfortable waistband and padded shoulder straps can help distribute the weight, but it's still important to take breaks as needed.

Another tip is to start with short periods of babywearing and gradually increase the amount of time as you and your babies get used to it. This can help avoid any potential discomfort or issues.

Overall, I've found babywearing to be a great way to bond with my twins and manage caring for them simultaneously. It's not always easy, but it's definitely worth it. Good luck!

Hello and congratulations,

I am a mother of fraternal twins who are just over a year old. I also found babywearing to be a great way to bond with my babies and free up my hands when needed.

When it comes to babywearing twins, I would recommend investing in a carrier that provides solid support for the babies and evenly distributes their weight across your body to avoid any strain or discomfort. I personally chose to use a double ring sling - it was versatile and I found it easy to use once I learned the proper technique.

One important thing to keep in mind is that the right carrier for your babies may vary depending on their size and weight, as well as your body shape and size. So, it might be helpful to try out a few different carrier types and brands to see what works best for you and your babies.

Overall, babywearing has been a wonderful experience for our family, and has allowed us to stay connected while staying active and getting things done. Good luck with your babies, and happy babywearing!

Hello,

As a mom of three children, including toddler twins, I've had a lot of experience with babywearing. I would definitely recommend babywearing for parents of newborn twins as it can be a great way to bond with your babies and keep them close.

One thing to keep in mind when babywearing twins is that it can be challenging to find a carrier that fits both babies comfortably. I ended up using two single carriers, a ring sling for one twin and a soft structured carrier for the other. This allowed me to adjust each carrier to fit each baby individually and ensure they were both safe and comfortable.

Another thing to keep in mind is that babywearing is not always practical or comfortable for every activity. While it's great for bonding and keeping your hands free, it might not always work for things like going up and down stairs or longer walks.

Overall, I found that babywearing was a huge help for me when caring for my twins, and a great way to bond with them. It's certainly worth trying out and finding the right carrier(s) for you and your babies. Good luck!
