Can anyone recommend a good double carrier/sling?

Not too bothered about the cost (anything which helps make the babies more manageable is worth it). Back support is the priority - I am already feeling about 82 years old! hmm

( I've found this thread, but it's quite old: http://www.mumsnet.com/Talk/multiple_births/1399153-Carrying-two-any-sling-wrap-recommendations-or-dont-buys )

How old are they? I had a Weego in the early days and got along very well with it, comfy to wear and felt secure to move around in, girls loved to sleep in it. It was a bit fiddly getting them in and out but it was doable alone which is the important thing! By about 4-5 months they were getting too big for it and didn't sleep so well in it but by that time they were sleeping reasonably well in cots so not so bad.

They are 2 months (although born at 35 weeks, so 3 weeks-ish adjusted). I'll give the Weego a look. I figure by the time they're 4-5 months, it will be too crippling to carry them both around anyway...

Thanks!

I woukd second joining twin sling, fab group! Also look up the TwinGo, it allows you to carry one on the front and one on the back (back twin needs good had control though). I really liked it, Koala Carriers and It's A Sling Thing both hire them out.
