By the time I was pregnant for the second time I had learned that following the needs of the child in the way that I had was an actual parenting style. I was excited to use slings and baby carriers for my next baby. When I found out I would be having twins I was slightly deterred at the thought of carrying two babies at the same time, but I was dedicated to giving my babies the best start I could, so I looked into ways of carrying both babies together.
I started out using a ring sling with my twins in an upright position next to each other. This was great while they were infants but once they started getting bigger it became really hard on my back. Luckily, right around this time I met my amazing friend Elizabeth. She saw me struggling with carrying my girls and she happened to be working on a prototype for a wrap style carrier. I had never used a wrap before and after trying it once I was sold! It was so much more comfortable for my back and shoulders than the ring sling and I could easily carry one baby in a wrap on the front and one in a structured carrier on the back.
It really changed my experience of parenting my twins naturally.
