Want a reliable baby carrier? Then you may want to give the TwinGo Original Baby Carrier a try!
The TwinGo Original Baby Carrier works well for parents with twins, or even parents with children of different ages. You can wear both children at once, or divide the carrier so that both parents can carry one child. There are three carrying positions: front carry with one child, back carry with one child, and dual carry with two children. It is made with 100% cotton on the exterior. The inward-facing position is healthy for your baby's hip development. This has been acknowledged as Hip Healthy by IHDI for providing ergonomic hip and spine positioning for babies.
For adults 4'11" to 6'5", this works well for children 10 to 45 pounds. You can, however, add an TwinGo Infant Insert for newborns as small as 7 pounds. This package includes one blue base carrier, one orange attachment carrier, two TwinGo sleep hoods (blue and orange), one attachment seat belt, and one removable set of attachment shoulder straps. This product works well for traveling, since the entire carrier can collapse into its own pocket. Once it is in the pocket, it is compact and easy to travel with.

Comfort - Great For Hiking
This carrier scored well with parents for hiking. It is made to be well balanced and functional. Here is one of the comments from hikers with twins,
"I was skeptical. So much so that I waited almost 2 years to buy this. Now I'm kicking myself for waiting!! This twin carrier is amazing! It's more comfortable than both of my single carriers. And I've now used it on a 6 mile, 1500+ elevation hike in the mountains! Unbelievable."
Baby in Front Can't Forward Face
This is a very nifty, well balanced, and functional twin carrier. However, with all things, nothing is going to be perfect in life. Unfortunately, the front baby can't face forward. This may bother some children to not be able to see out. Here is one of the comments about this issue,
"The ONLY reason that it doesn't get 5 stars for me, is that the baby in front can't face forward."
Having twins, I imagine, must be all about a balancing act. Making sure both are well fed, diapers changed on both, and giving both equal amounts of attention. This carrier is designed to take the guesswork out of how to balance twins when carrying them. The TwinGo Original Baby Carrier scored well with parents with how well balanced it is. Here is one of the comments,
"When properly adjusted, wearing both kids is actually comfortable! The weight is evenly balanced and distributed. The shoulder straps are well padded and nice and wide."
Easy To Load The Twins
With twins it's going to be more important than ever that a mom can load them up efficiently and safely. You won't be wanting double the trouble when trying to get twins strapped in. This carrier received good points for loading twins. Here is one of the comments,
"I needed something QUICK and EASY. I needed to not be standing in a parking lot for 15 minutes trying to wrap (and re-wrap) two squirming babies...The first time I tried the TwinGo, it took me less than 5 minutes to get both babies up & down. It was so quick and easy! For me, this is exactly what I was looking for."
This is an expensive carrier. But if you think about it, you could divide the price by 2 since it will be carrying two children instead of one, then it doesn't seem so bad. Here is one of the comments left by a customer pertaining to the price,
"Initially, the price tag can look high, but if you think of what you are getting - two separate carriers and a tandem system too, then you can't beat the value. It is honestly worth every cent!"
The TwinGo Original Baby Carrier is a well balanced twin baby carrier that scored well with parents in the area of comfort and easy loadability. The only negative that I could find was that the baby in the front can't face forward. Some babies will want to look out, so hopefully with twins, you'll have one that won't mind not seeing out as well. Other than that, this carrier is very functional. It is on the pricey side, but most parents were ok with the price for the use that they got out of this carrier. I hope that this review of the TwinGo Original Baby Carrier can help you decide if this baby carrier is right for your child!
