Yesterday I attended a meeting for a local baby wearing club with a friend and her baby. As I arrived, I debated whether I should bring in my Snap-N-Go or wear one baby while carrying the car seat with the other. It’s always uncomfortable making decisions like this when I’m going somewhere new. After consulting with a woman in the parking lot I decided on the second plan. It was a good call because the room was filled with mommas and babies.
Seeing the baby wearing options reminds me of my lust for the ease of having one baby. I don’t mean that I wish I had one baby. I mean, it stinks that most cool things about parenting don’t work the same when you’re a twin mom. Like baby wearing. My eye is always drawn toward the beautiful rainbow ring slings. I could maybe make one work, putting it on under a soft strap carrier like my Ergo. Is it worth the cost for a maybe? How many times can I really enjoy carrying two babies around? My other option would be the Ergo with a wrap on the front.
For now, this is how we roll.
Liam prefers to see what’s going on around us. It distracts him from the pain of teething. Baby Bjorn works best for this. It appears for now that neither like to be carried on the back. Regardless, how many singleton moms would even try back carrying with a 6-7 month old? Yeah, exactly.
How do you baby wear with twins? What’s your favorite way to wear your baby, twin or singleton? As a twin parent, how do you bring both babies somewhere when space is limited?
Happy Earth Day! K
