I am going on baby number 3 of baby carriers, slings, wraps, and wearing. I feel like I have tried “them all”!
This Boba 3G Carrier has GOT to be my favorite by far. There are so many features but I will highlight a few of my favorite.
First, and for me right now, the COOLEST feature, is that this carrier will be able to be used from newborn to toddlerhood! I couldn’t believe how easy the carrier converted to a newborn hold with just an adjustment at the straps and a snap up at the bottom. No need for purchasing extra newborn inserts for the carrier! There is a great video on the Boba website that was very helpful to me to learn how to do this easy adjustment. Now I can wear my newborn right away – and with 2 other toddlers around, I’m going to need all the free hands I can have!
Second, I love how lightweight and comfortable it is. I can back carry my 2 year old without even noticing. The ergonomic design really hugs around baby’s body, completely spreading out the weight so it doesn’t feel like you are carrying much of anything – and you can have great posture while you baby wear. I love how the carrier comes right up to baby’s neck to support, and as baby is older and more controlled this can be adjusted.
I am also really happy with how baby is positioned in this carrier. Unfortunately with my firstborn, I was unaware of the dangers to baby’s hip joints by using baby carriers and hang baby at their hip joints. You can see from this diagram from the Boba website how some carriers really have baby dangling at the hip joints which can cause developmental problems at the joint. The Boba Carrier positions baby’s hips much more comfortably and safely around mama’s waist.
Finally, and maybe most important – it is easy to put on. Because there is no way I’m going to use it every day if it is going to take me 15 minutes to try and figure out how to get the thing on! It even adjusts to fit my husband very simply and quickly.
