Does anyone know of a carrier that will allow me to wear twin infants? Is it even possible? I've heard that the Moby Wrap might work but I don't want to buy it unless I'm sure it's possible. I would love to hear from others who have worn babies simultaneously and their recommendations.
Thanks!

Yep, a Moby would work. One baby in each side. It worked well at for one of the mom's in our babywearing group that wore her twins in one.

So you buy two, or you mean she wore two in one single wrap? I'll be caring for a friend's baby as well as my own this spring, and want to make sure they both get plenty of wearing time and body contact.. I have been a little conflicted actually, because doing childcare will allow me to stay at home with my little one and still pay the rent, but I am worried about making sure both babies get their needs met.. I hate how the standard for daycares is to rely on swings and playpens and such to contain the babes.. so this might be a good option. Anyone have any experience or other tips with wearing multiple babes?

eta: Oh, I checked out the links.. it looks like you can do either two separate carriers, or put them both in one when they are very small.. I suppose it's really a matter of trial and error. Can't wait to give it a go though!

Try to stay away from carriers where the babies' legs dangle. Those are bad for hip development. Babies should be curled up, or if they're old enough to have their legs out, their knees need to be parallel to their hip or higher, so that they're sitting on their bum, not their crotch.
