    Top 5 Best Twin Carriers | 2017 Reviews

    Getting outside with young kiddos is already a challenge but it gets twice more difficult to stay hands-free when you have twin babies in tow. How do babywearing parents get around this problem? Well, there is actually a twin baby carrier that they can use.

    These types of baby carriers work just like the regular ones except that they are designed with two kids in mind. It definitely means that there will be a lot more weight to handle but it allows parents to more or less balance the weight so that one side is not heavier than the other.

    Using soft structured carriers are often not recommended on newborn twins as they might be a little too big for them. For this, many parents often use ring sling baby carriers – two of them, in fact – to accommodate each kid. Some wraps are also allowed for use on very small babies but they are not recommended for extended use as they usually do not adhere to CPSC guidelines.

    How do you choose the right twin carrier to use? You need to consider the weight range of passengers, ease of use, flexibility in use (can be turned into a single carrier or a dual carrier), and position of kids.

    There are also some types of twin carriers that are perfect not only for babies of the same age but also for parents with a toddler and a baby.

    If you are currently looking for a good carrier for twins or are looking to replace your current one, check out our review of the top 5 most recommended brands below.​

    Twingaroo Twin Baby Carrier

    Stuff 4 Multiples Twingaroo Twin Baby Carrier

    Perhaps the best of the best in terms of baby carriers for twins or multiple kids is this one from Twingaroo.

    What do we love about using this twin baby carrier? Well, for starters, it is made from 100% cotton and also comes with a great design to ensure that the kids inside stay in the best and most comfortable position even during extended periods. Children are supposed to stay in a frog position inside carriers and its super wide base is able to support just that.

    As for the parent, this twin carrier comes with a wide belt that allows proper distribution of wealth and optimal support so you do not hurt your back, side or any other part of your body in the process. It is also well padded so that the straps do not dig into your shoulders when both passengers are inside. This carrier can hold children between 10 and 35 pounds and they can be of similar or different weight – they will still stay comfortable for everyone.

    If you are worried about not being able to carry on the weight, you can always use it as a single carrier instead of a dual one so both parents can have one kid with them. We also love the fact that this comes with a built-in diaper bag in the back which already includes bottle holders that are insulated, as well as two separate compartments to put in change of clothes, diapers, small toys and other important items for quick trips.

    Obviously, we have a lot of good things to say about the Twingaroo twin baby carrier and not much negative to speak about. We absolutely love using it on twin babies as well as toddler and baby tandems and they are super strong and sturdy, making them ideal for both casual walks and even mountain hikes. It’s price point is also very reasonable so we place this one at the top position in our list.

    TwinGo Original Baby Carrier

    TwinGo Original Baby Carrier

    If you constantly go out of the house (and even if you do not), the Twin Go is, in our opinion, among the best baby carrier for twins available in the market. It offers great comfort for both parents and twin kiddos and also adds a lot of other options including wearing the carriers separately.

    This can be used as a tandem carrier for twins starting four months or when they have already mastered head and neck control (this is required for the baby being carried in the back carry position). Kids can be worn in front carry position individually starting 10 pounds but babies at 7 pounds may also be placed inside so long as you use the infant attachment, which is being sold separately. As a single carrier, it can hold a weight from 10 to 45 pounds or a combination of 70 pounds as a dual carrier.

    There might be some slight complexity in terms of its usage but you can get clear instructions through their guide book. We love the fact that the Twin Go also comes with several bells and whistles such as a zipper pouch and hood on each carrier. The hood will make it possible to breastfeed conspicuously or just allow them to take a nap without disturbances.

    We highly recommend using this twin baby carrier as it is super strong and sturdy that you can even use it for tandem wearing during mountain hiking trips. The problem might be more on how much load you can carry instead of the carrier’s. Another thing we love about the Twin Go is that the carriers can be separated and used individually so that each parent can carry one of the twins – all this without having to buy separate equipment.

    We love the Twin Go but it is definitely more expensive than the Twingaroo so we will have to push this down to second place

    Twin Go Carrier Lite Model

    Twin Go Carrier Lite Model

    As if the Twin Go Original was not impressive enough, here comes the lite model which is basically similar to the regular one but much lighter and minimalistic.

    If you are looking for something without the frills, then this is the best product to consider. The lite model is pretty much like the original carrier except that it does not have a built-in diaper bag to help reduce the weight. It is definitely ideal for going on short trips around the park or the neighborhood or anywhere that does not require a lot of things to bring.

    What do we love about this carrier? The fact that it uses lightweight yet sturdy and durable materials is a huge plus. Did you know that it uses durable plastic parts that are also being used in mountaineering gear? Well, it is that strong! Even the shoulder strap use premium foam for maximum comfort, even with two passengers in, and they are reinforced to be doubly strong. Despite this heavy duty design, the fabric itself is made from 100% super soft material so it stays gentle on your baby’s sensitive skin.

    This twin baby carrier comes with a base carrier which has blue interiors and an attachment carrier which has orange interiors. If you want to use it as individual carriers instead of dual ones, you can purchase additional straps separately. The sturdy waistband is also designed to have six different configurations so it can fit any size comfortably.

    If you are looking into a budget carrier to use for twins, this is the best option for you. It is more economical compared to other models and brands so you can opt to spend your savings on other more important baby products or you can also use it to buy additional accessories to make things even more comfortable for everyone.​

    Still, we love the built-in diaper bag in the original one instead of having to bring along a separate bag to hold essentials. It is a great carrier for short trips so we place it in the middle of our list.

    TwinTrexx 2 Twin Baby Carrier

    TwinTrexx 2 Twin Baby Carrier

    The Twin Trexx 2 works basically works like the Twin Trexx and can carry twin babies in five different positions. One of the main things that make this twin carrier different from the first one is that it comes with a wider base and a better design that makes it easier to get the babies in and out.

    This twin carrier is best used on younger and lighter kids especially when you are putting both of them in front. It will take some time to get used to and it will probably hurt your back easily but it is a nice option if you want to constantly see both babies in front. Once they start growing older, you can opt to have one at the back and the other one in front for a better balance. Of course, the best thing about this one, just like the previous Twin Trexx (shown below) is that it can be separated into two individual carriers for each parent to use.

    Sadly, our main gripe about this product is that it easily digs in to the shoulders when both babies are being carried as it is not the most padded in the market. It can definitely be painful to wear even after a short period of time. You might be better off using it as individual carriers as it will allow you to take both kids for longer periods.

    Still, we are glad that this one has a much wider base than the Twin Trexx although still not as wide to allow a frog position, which is the most recommended carrying position for babies. If you are worried about having their legs dangle below them, there might be better carriers for twins available in the market that you can use.

    If you hate having to deal with multiple straps and are worried about not having the best padding and support, this might not be the best product for you. But it is a better model than its predecessor so we are putting it in fourth place.

    Twin Trexx Twin Baby Carrier

    Twin Trexx Twin Baby Carrier

    If you plan on using two individual carriers for two adults and two babies instead of having a dual carrier for just one parent, you might want to consider using the Twin Trexx. We love the fact that this carrier can be separated into individual carriers that can hold babies from 7 to 25 pounds each. Aside from using it as individual carriers on two parents and one back and one front, it can also be used with both babies in front. Pretty cool, right?

    However, just like other baby accessories that are not very conventional, this twin baby carrier makes use of lots of straps and contraptions which can be extremely confusing in the beginning. Make sure to go through the guide very carefully and do it with someone else at first until you figure it all out. It is also best to do it on the floor to avoid accidents from happening. With some practice, you should be able to master using this carrier for twins and even switch between the different carrying positions.

    If you have smaller kids, you can have both babies in front but, it is not really the most recommended position for parents as it can hurt the back after long use. Still, even if the kids are in a back and front position, they can still be uncomfortable for the parents in the long run. The main reason why we had to place this carrier at the bottom of our list is because the straps do not feel sturdy and well-padded. In fact, your shoulders can get sore when using it for long periods but that is probably also because of the lack of exercise.

    We definitely love the versatility of this product but will have to opt for the other sturdier and more padded models that we have included in this list. It is still a good baby carrier to consider buying but we will have to place this one at the fifth spot.

    Conclusion

    As parents, all we really want is the best for our kiddos, whether they are twins or not. Still, having two kids of the same or even different ages means that we are doubly challenged to give them the best of the best and, when it comes to baby wearing moms, being able to stay close to both of them at the same time is very important.

    Once your babies start to grow, it might be a better option (both for your back’s sake and your babies’) to use a tandem stroller so everyone can walk around safely and more comfortably. If you decide to go for strollers, be sure to check out our list of the best tandem strollers to use on twins or multiple kids.​
