4. The increasing weight when carrying both children simultaneously should not be underestimated. Therefore, for most parents of twins, carrying both children at the same time is only a temporary solution. If both children are carried together permanently – for example, to take care of a sibling – it is much more ergonomic to distribute the children on two sides of the body: left and right or front and back. When I carry a child on each hip, the weight is much better distributed than if I had both in the front, but the range of motion is severely limited because my arms are too short to reach around both children. Activities that require both hands are therefore not possible. Ideally, carrying one child on the front and one on the back is recommended. This can even be done with relatively small babies. We recommend seeking baby carrier consultation for this purpose. During the consultation, you can practice the process with a doll on-site, and you will also receive expert guidance during your initial attempts with the children.
