<p>Yep - only way to stay sane! When they were first born, I'd wear them both in a ring sling- both upright with legs in. I could also wear them both in a wrap but didn't use that as much. When they got older (3 months +), I'd wear one on the front in a wrap or mei tei and one on the back in a mei tei. Loved this way and carried them like this all the time until they were at least 2. I could also do 2 hip carries - with 2 pouches or 2 ring slings or one of each but didn't like it as much as I was so wide and didn't feel that I could really do anything!</p>

<p>I think this lady  <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UEyvt8RhWQ" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UEyvt8RhWQ</a><span style="display:none;"> </span> did a pretty good job at demonstrating how to use a wrap with twins.  She is using a Dolcino in the video but I used the same technique with a Sleepy Wrap so it should be fine with any of them.</p>

<p>I used a moby wrap to carry both of mine when they were younger and then moved on to a front/back combination using a wrap or mei tei on the front and mei tei or ergo on the back.  </p>

<p>I also used a moby to carry both. Their Dad has been absolutely terrific about wearing one and I wear the other. However, I am going to try the moby/ergo combo when I am alone.</p>

<p>Best wishes to you,</p>

<p>PS. I travel with my twins in their mobys (no problems in the airport) and it makes it so much easier! We just add car seat rentals on the other end!</p>

<p>This is cool! I have been wondering what it would be like to wear twins. Does your back hurt after wearing them for too long, though?</p>

I used the moby when they were itty bitty, and an ergo/pouch sling combo later. It is the only way I got anything done!

<p>Now larger: in the Mommy Sandwich (This is a Beco butterfly on the back and Babyhawk on the front. I was just testing it out. I purchased and use 2 babyhawks now.)</p>

<p>And yes, my shoulders get very tired! But it's worth it to keep them both happy for a while.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>It makes me remember that I HATED wearing backpacks as a kid. Totally killed my shoulders and neck. But carrying the babies like this is simply a necessity. Hopefully I will get stronger / more used to it as time goes on!</p>
