Your Twingo Carrier Questions… Answered
Is it possible to put both babies in the carrier on your own with no extra help?
Yes of course! Watch the video below to see how easy it is to get your twins into the carrier. With a bit of practice, you will become a pro.
Can the baby in front be carried forward facing?
The Twingo Carrier is designed to carry inward-facing. It is not recommended to forward carry your babies as it puts undue pressure on their developing hips. You can read more about baby’s hip development.
What are the advantages of a Twingo Carrier over purchasing two separate carriers (eg Ergobaby, Baby Bjorn)?
The biggest advantage of the Twingo Carrier is that you only have one set of shoulder and hip straps. Trying to wear two individual carriers creates a lot of extra bulk and can get uncomfortable on your shoulders and restrict your movement. The Twingo Carrier is quicker to get babies in and out as it is all set up and ready to go.
You will also find the Twingo is much more economical than purchasing two separate carriers.
Is the Twingo Carrier suitable for newborns?
You can use the Twingo Carrier once your babies are 3kgs each but you will need to purchase the infant inserts which will give them the extra height and support they will require until they are old enough to hold their head steady. It is essential that babies under four months old are worn in a single front carry position only. They should NOT be worn on the adult’s back.
My twins are 11 months old and nearly 10kgs each. Is it really possible to use the Twingo or will they be too heavy?
The Twingo is designed to carry up to 32kgs combined weight when used in the tandem carry mode or 20kgs in the single carry mode. The straps are designed for maximum comfort and many mums use their Twingo’s well into their second or even third year. You probably won’t want to carry them for hours on a hike, but short trips to the store or school pickup will be more than doable.
Why is the Twingo more expensive than some of the other Twin Carriers available?
The Twingo can be used as a single or tandem carrier and is made of the highest quality materials to ensure maximum comfort and safety for you and your babies. The quality of the materials also means you will get longevity out of your carrier and its re-sale value will be much higher.

TWINGO CARRIER REVIEWS
Discover what other twin moms are saying about the Twingo Carrier and the impact it has had on their daily lives.
I love the fact that I can go on walks and be so close to my babies and wear them both at the same time – my hands are free too. The TwinGo distributes the weight evenly between my 8 month old girls so it’s pretty comfy. I really love this product.
I love it. It’s really comfortable and great for school pick up in the rain. I can carry twins, hold my 3 yr olds hand and also an umbrella. I find it easy to get them in and out by myself. The hoods are great for keeping them covered and encouraging sleep as well. I think its more comfortable than when I carried one in a single carrier – and my boys are big! (9kg and 10kg at 8 months)
I really like our Twingo. It is really easy to get on and off – though getting the back baby on takes a few times to get the knack.
It is a lifesaver for grizzly evenings – usually guaranteed sleep or at least chill time!
Back and front babies both seem comfy – my babies are 7 months.
Is also super useful that it can be used as two carriers for when out with my husband.
Re the price; they should hold their value so you can sell it for good money when finished with it.
