The 10 Best Twin Baby Carriers (2023 buying guide)

A baby carrier is now seen as an essential purchase for so many parents. But what do you do when you have newborn twins?

Sure, twin parents can carry their children in separate carriers. But what about when one of you aren't there? 

Thankfully, twin Baby carriers do exist. So you can get out of the house, go for a walk or go shopping without taking a heavy, clunky stroller, or keep your hands free to get some chores done around the house while soothing your baby.

We've put this guide together to bring you all you need to know about Twin Baby Carriers, and picked out 10 of our favourite carriers for twins on the market.

Different types of twin baby carriers


Similarly to a baby carrier for one child, there are three main types of twin baby carrier. Each has its own style, as well as positives and negatives.

Let's take a look. 

Sling carrier for twins

There are three types of sling carrier, one of which should not be used. Slings are generally extremely comfortable for the wearer and much cooler. However, they can also cause your baby's weight to be distributed unevenly which may be uncomfortable and even dangerous.

It's possible to carry twins in one sling, however, some are designed to carry twins individually.

Bag sling carrier - Bag sling carriers are NOT recommended for us because have very little (if any) flexibility or adjustability. That means your babies can end up in dangerous positions.

Ring sling carrier - A ring sling uses long pieces of stretchy fabric with (usually) wooden rings sewn into the end. The fabric loops through the ring to create a small pouch for your baby.

Pouch sling carrier - This type of sling carrier is a single piece of folded fabric worn across the body like a sash.

Wrap carriers for twins

Stretchy wraps are made up of one, long piece of fabric that wrap around you and your babies. Wraps are usually favoured because they offer a safe position for baby and plenty of comfort for whoever is carrying them, with the fabric distributed evenly across the back.

The International Hip Dysplasia Institute (IHDI) favours wrap carriers. Check out the 'Safety' guide in the 'Key Considerations' section for more information on hip dysplasia and baby carriers.

Given that a wrap carrier results in several layers of fabric wrapped around your body, they can get quite warm. That's why a single wrap carrier is typically chosen to carry two babies, rather than an individual carrier for each twin.

Soft structured carriers for twins

Soft structured carriers are probably the most common type of baby carrier - at least for parents with one baby. It's what you'll typically see out and about - a more structured 'seat' position for baby with adjustable shoulder straps crossing over the back, held together by buckles.

They usually have a breathable mesh fabric to prevent it getting too warm for you and baby, and often allow for easy transformation to the back carry position.

Although they (usually) outclass the other types in how easy they are to put on, they are also considered to be the most uncomfortable for the wearer. All of baby's weight is resting on those shoulders.

There are a few variations in the twin baby carrier. Some are designed specifically to carry one baby at the front and one baby on your back (remember, babies should be on your front and inward-facing until 4-6 months). However, there are also some designed to carry newborn twins at the front, side-by-side.

When using a wrap or sling carrier, it is highly recommended that any new parents visit a babywear specialist or consultant to learn how to tie product correctly to ensure safety and comfort. 

This is especially important when using a carrier that isn't designed specifically for twins.

Editor's Review

“This is by far my favourite baby product ever! It is amazingly comfortable to tandem twins - mine are nearly 2 and I still wear them both, and they still love it! It is equally comfortable when used as a single carrier."



Our pick at the 'Best Overall', the TwinGo Original Baby Carrier offers a huge amount of longevity and versatility. What makes this stand out from the crowd is it's ability to be used as a tandem carrier for twins, or as separate carriers. With eight adjustment points and ergonomic design, you can find the perfect position to make life as comfortable as possible for you and your babies. It also comes with a pair of large pockets than attach to the back of each carrier, meaning you don't have to forego storage.

It is not suitable from birth for most, however an insert that reduces the minimum weight limit is available to purchase separately.

  • Positions - Front and back carry positions (back carry only from 4-6 months)

Editor's Review

“My toddler and twins are 22 months apart and still need my attention. This wrap has made it easier to wear my twins while I give some time to my older son. We can go on our walks, make meals, and play together without neglecting or having to chose which twin I'm going to carry. I can do it all."


The Boba Classic Wrap is an award-winning baby carrier, with more than three million sold since it was launched in 2008. Made from super soft French Terry cotton, it combines function, comfort and style whether you're carrying just one baby or twin newborns.
