Just wondered if anyone had any ideas? I used a stretchy with Finlay, but he wasn’t in it long, so thinking a woven? I have a didy nino, but I hate the colour and pattern, so may think of another, only they all seem to be really expensive. Ideally I would like a nice, comfy, rainbowy type coloured one, not too pricey. Any ideas?

TWINS? Wow! x

Storch inka? IIRC storch’s aren’t too expensive compared to some. I’d say a long woven wrap would be the most versatile, although I have never tried with twins myself!

Or if you like girasols http://www.naturalnursery.co.uk/woven-wrap-baby-sling/girasol-baby-wrap.html has £15 off giras if you use the code ‘girawrap’ smile

Sorry - me again! Little frogs are good value too, although I have heard that some can need quite a bit of breaking in xx

I love both our Didymos and our Nannie Cool wovens, which i have discovered are actually really cheap compared to most woven wraps. Our didy cost £80 five years ago, which i felt was pricey, but i’ve since been on sling forums where people are paying *hundreds* of pounds for woven wraps!

Anyway, drifting back to the point, both of ours are fab, and according to the didy instructions (both wraps are the same length) long enough to wrap twins. The didy is much softer, but it is the only sling i had for two years, so it is well broken in. I have a friend with an equally well broken Nannie Cool, and that one is just as soft as the Didy.

In the interests of full disclosure, i should mention that Nannie Cool is my MIL, but it *is* one of the wovens i’ e used, so i thought it was ok to mention. If you were interested in one of hers (i think they come in at about the £50-60 mark), do drop her an email - she’s very accomodating and would try to source you a rainbow!

My didy was £85 3 years ago, and it is soft, but I don’t like the pattern, and I did dye it, so fine for Finlay who is way past the chewy/sucky stage, but probably not a good idea for two little ones.

Loving the Storch Inca…and will check out the Nanniecool site also Angie, thank you smile

Why don’t you sell your NINO?

Even if you only got £70 for it, you’d be able to put that towards a Didymos you like more (there are some really great colourways and designs).

Personally I really love Didymos Waves for comfort and support etc.

I’m not keen on Storchenweiges.

I do like Girasols, but they are not as supportive as Didymos. I also really like the colourways of KokaDi, but I haven’t tested them out so can’t comment on what they are like to wear.

Also 2 dogs, 6 cats, and 6 hens.

I could sell it, but I don’t think I would get overly much for it, as it has a few pulls in it, after a meeting with a kitten last year wink Maybe I could find a sling library who does postal loans and test out on Finlay smile

If you are likely to be warm with so many babies, how about a large EllaRoo?
The fabric is strong, but doesn’t even get me too warm lol!

We’ve not had twins wink but we do love our Didymos.  We have a Storchenwiege and a Didymos and I agree, there is just no comparison.  The Didy is just so perfect.  I have not tried the other brands mentioned here, though DD1 has a Kokadi dolly sling she loves grin .

It’s funny-I love my storch and really don’t like my didy anywhere near as much.  Girasols are my favourite smile My inka is by far the most supportive of all the slings I’ve owned. A sling meet or library is a great idea -it’s such a personal thing.

We all have getting still direct contact with her skin and she is still getting the healing properties from the amber.
