Baby wearing... Two ring slings?

Has anyone worn two kids at the same time in two different ring slings? I am due with #5 in August and my youngest will be about 18/20 months old. I have worn two kids before with one on the back in an SSC and one on the front in either another SSC or a ring sling. However, there a couple of situations, like church, where I can see it being nice to be able to be able to pop the youngest in a carrier while I'm wearing the baby. I don't want a back carry because I want it to be something where he could be easy in/easy out without making it a production, plus church is a lot of up and down. Has anyone done two ring slings? I was thinking one on each shoulder and the baby would be on my chest and the toddler could be in ring sling on my hip. A wrap would be a possibility for the baby too, with the toddler on my hip in a ring sling. Has anyone used either of these combinations with success?

**DH will be overseas, so it will be just me and my two hands**

I've done two babies in 2 different ring slings at the same time. I only did it a handful of times but it worked fine.
I've also done 2 in 1 wrap. 1 in wrap 1 ssc. 2 ssc. 1 wrap 1 ring sling.

When you did two in one wrap were they of similar size?

 I have done twin 2 month old's in two ring slings before, worked out fine. I have also done a 6 wk old tummy to tummy in a rs with a 1yr old in a rs on my hip. I've worn up to 4 babies at a time no problem so it can be done:) I should add they I worked at a children center(they weren't all mine), I was the head infant teacher everyone else thought I was nuts for carrying them around all day.lol

I'm glad to hear that will work with two ring slings. It was working in my brain, I just wasn't sure how it would work in practice.

Yes.
But I know you can do it with an older child and younger

I'd go on youtube and look for videos on how to do it! I'm sure you will find something!

If you have a long enough wrap you should be able to wrap up two kiddos!
