🏡 Staircase Struggle: Seeking Twin Mom Wisdom! 🤔👶👶

Twin Mom Answer About Twins Are Getting Heavier

@sweatymamaeastgrinstead : I bought a twingaroo on eBay for £40. It’s amazing. I use it loads still and mine are 17 months. I find it quicker and easier than the pushchair. It’s a bit daunting the first few times you put one on your back but I’m so used to it now and my. Son has actually learned to lean in and hold on tight. They’ve been in it since 4 months.

@heatherschalkparenting : Yes! So we have stairs in our house, 2 segments of steps. And I carried them for a long time down the stairs, I can’t remember till what exact age but until around 2ish. Until they were able to scoot or hold onto the railing and walk down or crawl backwards, but my stairs are carpet. I actually tore my lower lat (back) carrying them (took months to recover), they were 92% percentile so a lots weight to carry then set down.

The best thing was working on gross motor skills like climbing stairs at playground or baby/toddler friendly equipment. Not a quick fix or hack but they now can independent walk down the stairs although I’ll say some days they want me carrying them again! Now they are good with the concept of “waiting” because I taught that early on, so I can carry one down at a time.

Try the twin go carrier

@demitierney : My twins are now 3 I was in the same position I had 2 doonas I used to carry one down at a time same for goin up. It was a struggle to be honest all seems to be a distant memory now. Thank god! Xx

@sallymeasures87 : My twins are 10 months. I wear a carrier for one and then carry the other. This is when I’m nipping in and out of places but would work going up and downstairs as you’ve got one hand free for a railing too x

@rachelelizabeth.se : The twin go carrier? Its pricey but might be worth it

Reply : @mom_to_eliott_ella : do you have a picture ? or a reference? I come from France

Reply : @rachelelizabeth.se : Check out @twingocarrier ☺️

@giulia.materazzo : Compra un box per bambini e lo posizioni nella tua sala. Metti uno dei bambini centro al box in sicurezza. Porti giù dalle scale l’altro bambino e lo leghi nel passeggino che hai messo nell’ ingresso del palazzo. Torni su in casa e prendi l’altro bambino.

@1isup : My boys are 6 m.o. and i carry them in the “snugglebundles”.so i can get them downstairs at the same time or have a hand free. It wont make them less heavy but for me its a total game changer🥳

@bexster319 : Move!

@m.noelia.luna : Lo que se me viene, necesito saber CÓMO!! 🙏🏼
