baby carrier for 7 month old babies

I need some advice, my twins have never been carried in a carrier, (a part from the very early days), but I'd like to get a baby carrier to take them out on walks with dh, or just to sling the "fussy" one (there always IS one) for when I just need to get on with things in the house and one of them wants to be close to me.

My question is, what is easy to use for a first timer with 7 month old babies? Something they are most likely to like and not refuse? (crystal ball optional grin)

thanks in advance, all help appreciated

I really love my Ergo carrier. I still use it for DS and he is almost a year old. Could you try some out at a 'sling library'?

If you decide to buy an Ergo, beware of fakes. Ebay is notorious for selling knock offs.

Good luck!

Thanks, forgot to add, I'm not in the uk, so I cant go to a sling library unfortunately

Where are you? There may be local equivalents.

A soft structured carrier like an ergo is probably easiest to master. I like wraps for their flexibility and ring slings for speed.

Hi Frakiosaurus, I'm in Italy, never heard of sling meets here.

Are there any tricks to recognise a proper ergo??
