How it works

The TwinGo Original Baby Carrier is an amazing product for growing families. It is made for the parents of twins or even for parents of children of similar ages. Parents can have one child on their front and one on their back. The carrier can also be divided so both parents can hold one child each. It has three positions available: one child can be carried on the front, or one child can be held on the back or two children can be carried, one on the front and one on the back.

The carrier offers ergonomic support for both parents and babies. The inward position that your baby will be in is actually very healthy for their hip development. It offers an ergonomically healthy hip and spine position for babies as recognized by IHDI. It also offers lumbar support for parents or adults that are using the carrier.

It is highly adjustable so it can fit just about any adult. The recommended usage is for parents between 4’11 and 6’5. The straps are adjustable as well to accommodate several different body weights. The waistband has 6 different configurations to fit parents XS to XL.

The TwinGo Carrier is made from high-quality fabric that is soft and safe for babies. The shoulder bands are made from a foam that is 1 inch thick for extra comfort. It is made from similar material as hiking gear so it is ultra-durable and secure. It has also passed many safety tests to ensure its durability and security.

The recommended usage for the carrier is for babies between 7 pounds for a single baby to 70 pounds for the combined weight of your two babies. This means that the TwinGo Original Carrier will grow with your child and you can have it for many years to come.

Age Range

Age Range

The TwinGo Original Carrier is definitely built to last. It can be used for a very long time. It is intended for parents with twins or two children of similar ages. It has 3 options for positions. It can hold a single child in the front position, a single child in the rear position or the dual position with one child in the front and one child in the back. Parents can start using the TwinGo Carrier system when their babies are at least 7 pounds each. Parents can continue use until their babies are 45 pounds each or at a combined weight of 70 pounds.
Versatility

Versatility

The TwinGo Original Carrier has very impressive versatility. To carry only one child, it is already set up just like any other single child carriers. The carrier has some buckles on the base that make it function as a standard one child carrier. Then there are the attachment buckles so that the carrier will function in the dual mode for two children. The buckles can be stored in the storage bag that is attached to the carrier system so you don’t need to store it separately and it will not take up too much additional space. It is very simple to convert the unit to the dual position. All you need to do is buckle the waistbands to one another so that the base carrier is on your back and the attachment carrier is on your front. You just don’t add the additional straps that are only used for single child use. You then just put the first baby on your back using any method that you are comfortable with. You then adjust the straps so that they are comfortable on your body and then secure the chest strap. You then put the second baby on your front, using the safety strap. The front carrier clips onto the shoulder straps. Both carriers are attached to the shoulder straps so that it is as comfortable as possible for the parent wearing the dual carriers. This also makes it easier for parents to adjust since they only need to handle two straps as opposed to four if you were using two separate carriers.The front and back attachments also share a waistband for even more comfort. It helps you to support the children with your hips rather than your shoulders so you have less discomfort. This is really great for parents who have two small children who need their hands free. And when you only have one child with you, you only need to transform the carrier back to the individual child position. You can also split it and use the carrier for two people so that one parent is carrying one child and the other is carrying second child. It is highly versatile and a rare find for parents with twins or children that are very close in age or weight.
Design

Design

The TwinGo Original Carrier is also equipped with two large pockets that can help parents out that do not want the hassle of a bulky diaper bag. The pockets are very decent sized. They are enough to carry diapers and other necessary on the go items that you or your baby may need. They are large enough to carry what you need but not so big that they throw off your balance or make your children uncomfortable. The pockets also reverse so that you can store the carrier away.

The TwinGo Original is first to have the ergonomic front/back position for carrying two children at a time. The design is patented. It allows parents to have one child in the front, one in the back or both at the same time. The brilliant design also splits in two so that parents can use it for just one child or they may both carry a child at a time. It is a highly versatile and practical product.

The design also features an inward facing position that is very healthy for young children’s hip development. It also makes it possible for parents to hold the weight of two babies as opposed to one. It takes the burden off the shoulders and gives parents lumbar support to deal with the extra weight.
Material

Material

The TwinGo Original Carrier is made of a fabric that is very high quality. It is very soft and very durable so that your baby remains safe and comfortable while inside of the carrier. The bands of the shoulder straps are also lined with a 1 inch thick layer of foam for added comfort and shock absorption. The straps and buckles are made from the same kinds of materials as those of hiking gear or mountain gear as well so parents can be assured that their babies are safe and secure when strapped into the carrier. The durable fabric also means that the carrier will last a very long time and will be free of rips, tears and frays.

The TwinGo Original Carrier also comes with a sleep hood that is 100% made of cotton. They offer your baby head support while in the carrier and also shield your baby from harmful sun. Just like the rest of the carrier, it is made from a high quality fabric and it is very soft to the touch. All of the fabric of the TwinGo Original Carrier is also safe for babies. The carrier has passed many safety tests so parents can feel confident while carrying their children around in the carrier system.
Comfort

Comfort

It is a very comfortable carrier for parents. It is very well balanced and smartly designed so that it is not bulky with extra buckles and straps. Active parents who like to do things like hiking or anything outdoors will love this carrier for its comfort. It is great for long hikes. The straps adjust so that it always feels balanced and parents will be able to support the weight of their child or children. If parents were trying to get the same effect by using two harnesses, there would be a lot of extra pieces that this unit just doesn’t have. It still has the two straps instead of four if you were using two carriers. Then waistband and all the other parts are all adjustable so parents are always comfortable. The ergonomic design is not just for babies but for parents as well.
Safety

Safety

The manufacturer recommends that this product only be used for children between 10 pounds and 45 pounds. It can be used for babies as small as 7 pounds with the extra infant insert by TwinGo. Babies younger than 4 months or babies that do not have proper neck and head control should not be held in the back position. The double carry position is for children up to 45 pounds or a combined weight of 70 pounds for two children.

The manufacturer also has an added safety feature. There are dual adjust buckles that have a back up safety elastic loop.

The carrier was also designed so that baby’s hips are in a proper position for healthy development. The dual design also gives parents a balanced feeling so that they are able to support the extra weight.

Cost

The cost of the Twingo Original Carrier is priced a bit higher than the standard individual child carriers. However, to achieve the same effect you would need to buy two separate carriers and wear them at once. If you think of the Twingo as just two carriers, it is actually quite reasonable. And for the price you get the comfort and safety you need without all of the bulky straps and buckles of two carriers. A lot of thought and care was put into the Twingo Original Carrier and it addresses the unique concerns of parents who have two small babies. It’s features and design really make it well worth the cost. Additionally it can be used for a very long time.

Conclusion

The TwinGo Original Baby Carrier is a rare find for families with twins or with children born closely together. It is expertly designed for the parents of twins or even for parents of children of similar ages or similar weights. Parents can keep one child on their front side and one on their back which frees up their hands for all of the other tasks that parenting involves. The carrier can also be divided so both parents can hold one child each. It has three configurations available: one child can be carried on the front, or one child can be held on the back or two children can be carried at once with one on the front and one on the back.

The carrier also offers some ergonomic support for both parents and babies. The inward position that your baby will be in is indeed very healthy for your child’s early hip development. It offers an ergonomically healthy hip and spinal position for babies. This support has been recognized by IHDI. In addition, it offers lumbar support for parents or adults that are using the carrier so that the burden is not only on the shoulders.

It is very adjustable so it can easily fit just about any adult. The recommended height for parents is between 4’11 and 6’5. The straps are adjustable as well to accommodate several different body weights. The waistband has 6 different configurations to fit parents XS to XL. With that wide range, it can fit almost anyone.

The TwinGo Carrier is made from very high quality fabrics that are very soft and also safe for babies. The shoulder bands have foam cushioning that is 1 inch thick for extra comfort and shock absorption. The carrier is also made from similar material to hiking or mountain gear so it is extremely durable and very secure. It has passed many safety tests to ensure its durability and security.

The recommended weight for babies using the carrier is between 7 pounds for a single baby to 70 pounds for the combined weight of your two babies. That wide range and adjustability of the carrier means that the TwinGo Original Carrier will grow along with your child and you can enjoy it for many years to come.
