I have a friend that used to put her baby in a backpack and do lunges to get tone and fit. Imagine the added weight of three babies??? I'd be in that two piece in no time!!! haha

OMG what a nightmare. As someone who has worn 2 babies at once, I can tell ya this thing looks like torture! OK, let's be honest, slinging 2 babies isn't comfy period. But the Maya slings worked pretty well - one crossed over each shoulder. Once they got to more than 25 pounds combined weight (at most) that was that. My lower back still smarts thinking about those days!

I think knowing more about slings now that I could do one in back carry and one in front carry pretty easily if I had the right slings at each age/size.

Ohhh, that look SO uncomfortable I sling my twins on a daily basis (min 4-5 hours a day) and am perfectly comfy in the combo that works for us (Hug-a-bub on front, Kozy on back), I hate to think of all the moms of multiples dealing with that contraption! There are better ways to do it

Yeah, I'd love to call just to ask if anyone actually uses this for carrying three babies at once. I'd love to meet the mama that was in need of this and created it!!

You HAVE to get her opinion on babywearing multiples. Did that carrier help?? Is is a little unrealistic?

My mother-in-law is a twin and I several sets of twins on my side. Every time I get pregnant, my family teases that it will be twins. I think I would have to make hubbie quit his job just to help me carry all those babies...but forget 3 babies!! That would be a whole lotta love!!
