I can't figure out how to do this.  I currently have an Ergo and a Moby wrap.  I also have a pocket sling, but don't like it much.  I can't figure out how to wear the Ergo and Moby at the same time.  My twins are only 8 weeks old right now so I can't do a back carry anyway, but I'm still stumped.  I'm thinking about getting a Mei Tai because that seems to work better with the Ergo, but I'm not sure.


Basically, if you wore your twins, how did you do it?  I'd like step-by-step instructions, if you don't mind.

Hmmmm....when my two were that small I used to wear them both together in the moby wrap. I can't picture using a moby with either a mei tei or Ergo without using a back carry.  I did use that combination when they were older and I felt comfortable doing a back carry.  Hopefully someone else can give you some suggestions.

I wore them both in the moby until they were about 4 months and then they were just too big.  After that I used a moby on my back and the ergo in a hip carry.

If I wear both, I put on the moby first (w/o baby), then back-wrap one twin.  Then I can put teother twin in the Moby.  I did both in the Moby until they were each 10lbs.   They are 9wks adjusted now.

Anyone use two ergos at once? Been staring at them pondering it. My twins are 8 & 10 lbs and 8 weeks old, so still use the infant inserts most the time.
