I have only come across a few manufacturers of twin baby carriers and wraps/slings/hammocks, etc. so far. These clever contraptions allow you to hold two babies at the same time while keeping your hands free (a.k.a. twin baby wearing). A nice option when twins are very young and you don't want to pack up the double stroller or simply want to keep your babies close.
They can be worn in varying positions and may even be utilized at home for toting your babies while doing other tasks (like the vacuuming!).
Additionally, and newer to the market, are baby hammocks. I know they really don't fall into the traditional "twin baby carrier" category, but wanted to include them here as they are such an asset for grocery shopping with twin babies.
Read below about specific features, pricing and product links.
This twin baby carrier arrived on the scene in 2011 and now has an original version as well as the "TwinTrexx 2". It was invented by a mother of twins and offers some helpful configurations for babies from 7 to 25 pounds. It can be used front to back, side to side or as a single carrier for each parent or caregiver. It's cushioned in all the right places for maximum comfort and the external pockets offer easy storage. The TwinTrexx is easy to put on and take off. It is currently available in a unisex burgundy color (the Original) and black (TwinTrexx 2) that will work well for any combination of twins. These twin baby carriers run from around $129 to $159.
The Twingaroo Baby Carrier and Diaper Bag Combo just came out in 2015.
It's by the same manufacturer of the TwinTrexx, so you know the quality
and design is top notch.
It's one of our favorite twin baby carriers on the market. What could be better for parents toting two babies around? A diaper bag
It boasts a carrier for each twin as well as a
small handy diaper bag all in one contraption. Great for getting around
with the essentials. I's adjustable to accommodate most adults. It is available in your choice of two colors,
black or khaki. And, there are helpful videos so that you
can see it in action.
You can own one of these twin baby carrier/diaper bag combos
for around $159.99.
These baby hammocks for shopping carts are pretty new to the market here in 2015-2016. I love how there are always new innovations in baby gear developed by parents out of their unique needs when getting out with multiple children. And hey, we all have to grocery shop!
The Binxy Baby Hammock easily attaches to most any grocery shopping cart and also folds down to a tiny little thing when not in use. You do need to purchase these separately, meaning they are sold individually and not in pairs. So, if you want to utilize a hammock for each twin, then order two. Otherwise, some parents find that just one will work when they choose to have the other twin in a carrier or sling.
You will love the hip, modern prints and also the fact that the Binxy Baby Hammock will accommodate an infant car seat, yes you heard right! They are a bit on the pricey side at around $49 bucks a piece, so you're looking at around $100 for two, but who's counting when it makes life at the grocery store that much easier?
The Baby K'tan Baby Carrier is great for use with twins because of its
unique double loop design.
These loops enable you to wear your babies for the first few months of
their lives (generally comfortable for twins up to 10 lbs.) The fabric is soft and well made in different color options.
Best of all, you can discretely breastfeed both babies at the same time!

Weego makes one of the best quality twin baby carriers. A cool feature is it's suitability for preemie twins. It won't accommodate older babies (around 6 months is the max) like some of the other carriers, however you can't beat it for newborns. The Weego easily adjusts for growing babies and to fit different people carrying them as well. It's machine washable and comes with a protective carrying bag. One of these will cost you around £ 125 (GBP) from Twins UK, or $159 USD from Weego.com.
The Moby Wrap baby carrier is very versatile. It is machine washable, comes in several colors, and appears to be pretty comfortable to wear. A great option for premature twins. There are detailed instructions and photos (like the one shown right) on the many ways to use it offered on their official website - mobywrap.com. This particular baby wrap for twins is a super bargain at only around $45!
Price of $129 includes TWO connecting, adjustable slings that
grow with your twins! Use from birth to 20 lbs (each sling).
Two connecting slings may be separated into two single slings so babies
can be carried individually if need be.
Front mesh panel allows airflow inside sling while twins sleep, enjoying
the rocking motion during your walk.
One size fits all: Shoulder strap is adjustable for mom or dad. Cushy,
foamed shoulder pad adds extra comfort for wearer.
Inside the sling, the "Comfort Pad" offers secure center and side waist
restraints that adjust, and move lengthwise as your babies grow in
The "Comfort Pad" is also removable for an on-the-go diaper changing
station, and can be machine washed and dried separate from the sling.
Back of sling has an expandable feature that zips open the sling fabric,
offering more leg room as your babies grow.
Two pockets inside sling hide extra diapers, wipes, wallet, keys and
Nursing is discreet and easy with baby still inside sling.
