I used a Mei Tai and A Beco or a Beco and pouch slings. My basic approach was to put the soft carriers on my body without babies, then put the Beco on with a baby in it and then put babies in the softer carriers.
With the Mei Tai:
First, I tied the Mei Tai round my waist in preparation for a front carry with the shoulder straps untied but lying over my shoulders down my back so the straps would end up under the Beco. Then I put a baby in the Beco for a back carry. I would load the baby in the Beco on my hip and then rotate to the back. Then I put the second baby in the Mei Tai for the front carry and tied the back ties under the bum of the baby on my back and again in front under the bum of the baby in front. Sometimes, I would tie the Mei Tai shoulder straps loosely before putting the Beco on and slip the baby in and tighten up the straps with the baby in,
With the Beco and the pouch slings:
I would place the sling or slings over my shoulders empty and ready for babies. Then, I would put a baby in the Beco on my back via my hip. Then I would put a baby in the sling closest to my body and the final baby would go in the sling furthest from my body.
I could carry all three this way. But not for long as it got very heavy very fast.
I hope that gives you some ideas of how to use the slings you have.
