Just wondering if anyone has carried two children and lived to tell about it! I have a three year old and three month old and we like to get out for walks...not many side walks in this neighborhood though so the stroller isn't much fun. I have an ergo for the three year old and either a ring sling or moby for baby. Any advice? TIA
Good luck figuring it out with your lo's! I hope you are able to find a comfortable way - I think it can be so helpful and definitely worth the try!
Yes, I do it with my 2 yr old and 4 month old, in 2 separate wraps (younger one on the front in FWCC, older one on the back in a ruck). Luckily my 2 yr old is small - only 24lbs or so. With the wraps, I can get the weight arranged reasonably comfortably. But it's still heavy, and covers most of my available surface area in children - not nearly as pleasant to take a walk that way as it was with just one. That said, I still find it worth doing sometimes, and do it on some very rough trails around here. Farthest I go that way is 3 miles into town, usually.
I have also done it with a 2.5 year old on my back in a mei tai and a 1 year old on my front/ hip in a pouch sling.
Of course I did! When my son was newborn I would have him fwcc in a hemp indio and my 3 yo dd would be rucked or in an ergo on my back. This lasted until he turned six months and was sixteen lbs. I think it's best to have the smaller one up front in a snug wrap so the older one can go up and down without adjusting the younger one. Now I only wear both of them if I have too, which according to my daughter is anytime I make her walk far or when I say it's time to leave the playground.
be good family...
