There comes a time in every mother of multiples life when they find their “ahh” product. The one they didn’t realize they couldn’t live without. The one that just made life that much easier.
I know I rave about products in all my reviews but that’s because I only review products I love and want to rave about.
This is no different.
I use carriers all the time; it’s a must with a busy household to run and babies in tow.
I thought, as with other carriers, the weight of two 20 pound babies would wear on me after about thirty minutes which is my usual max time.
Unlike other double carriers which can be cumbersome to put on, the Twingaroo only took one practice with a baby doll and then a cautious real baby try before I got the hang of it.
My favorite features about this carrier are, in so special order:
- THE DIAPER BAG-seriously wait until you see what I can fit in that sucka’ AND it’s the only carrier out there with a diaper bag attached-truly a hands free experience
- It’s completely lined in vinyl so if you forget a baggie or your wet-bag, just drop that soiled, wet, nasty onesie in there and then wipe it out
- It’s one piece! Just one. No need for extra pieces, buckles and straps because ya only need one carrier to carry both babies; simple, safe, period
Now let’s talk about support. The fabric is canvas which is extremely durable and rather breathable. The straps are thick so they won’t dig into your shoulders and I must say it is an unbelievable teething soother. My girls chew on that stuff every time I wear them!
There are safety elastic pieces on the buckle just in case you don’t click the buckle all the way or little mitts try to play with them. I would be impressed if little fingers could unclasp these sturdy buckles. This added protection is such a great safety feature that I haven’t had on my other carriers.
Additional safety and aesthetic features that I love are the elastic “ties” near each clip. As you adjust your straps you can safely wrap up the left over material.
I mentioned the material is a canvas which is a nice change. Often carriers are made completely of vinyl or a similar material for easy cleaning which is nice for that reason, but can get very hot in the warmer months. I was surprised with the breathability of the canvas material.
I must go back to the diaper bag before I inundate you with photos and mention what I carried in there the other day:
- Nine, 9, diapers
- A package of wipes
- A dual can of snack treats (orange container)
- A bottle of water
- Two sleepers
- Two hats
- Two pacifiers
- Two books
- A container of formula
- Rash ointment, chest rub, and small powder
That was just in the back pack and there was still room to go!
In the front I carried my wallet, phone (not show), keys (not shown) and lotion along with a bottle on either side of the insulated pouches!
In case words do nothing for you let me show you a photo:
Here are a few photos of the carrier laid out so you can see some of the details you might not see while being worn.
Where is Dad during all this fun? Luckily Steve is a true hands-on-get-in-there kind of Dad. This carrier is versatile enough for my 5’3″ petite frame and Steve at his 6’2″ build.
If you already like us, thank you SO much for the love and support! And here is a little video of my brilliant video skills; Hollywood there’s a new director in town.
