I was thinking I could put him on my back in an ergo and sling the newborn in a sling around him. Would that even work?

you can totally carry both in an ergo/sling combo. you can even do an ergo/pouch (i helped a mama of twins at work with this a few months back, it worked great for her!). here's how i had her do it-
*buckle the ergo around your waist/hips and let it hang down
*put on the sling/pouch, put baby in, and adjust
*finally, get the toddler on your back and then fasten the ergo, making sure that the chest slip is high enough so that it doesn't knock into the baby's head
i would not recommend putting the sling on over the ergo, as it wouldn't be as secure. basically as long as you put the front carrier on first you'll be fine!
