For this review, I received a Boba Carrier in order to facilitate my review.
As a mom of 7, there are many days when I wish I had more hands. Our newest baby, Carly, is a snuggler. She absolutely loves to be held. While I love holding her, there are times when I have to get things done.
Thank heavens for my Boba Carrier!
My new Boba Carrier allows me to keep Carly close to my chest, and frees up my arms to load the dishwasher, fold laundry, or even type up a blog post. I even power walk most days outside with Carly strapped securely in her Boba Carrier.
I love how easy the Boba carrier is to put on. And the buckles are extra big, so I feel that Carly is completely secure once she is buckled in. There is a large buckle in the back at my waist, and another buckle up at the top near my shoulder blades. I simply snap the buckle at my waist, hold Carly to my chest, bring the carrier up over Carly, and secure her in with the buckle at my shoulder blades. It couldn’t be easier.
Boba has excellent step-by-step instructions for using all of their products on their website. You can find them here: Baby Wearing Instructions
Besides the feeling of how secure Carly is in the Boba carrier, there are several other features that I love:
- The comfort. This is one of the most comfortable carriers I have ever used with Carly. I can wear it for hours at a time – walking, in the grocery store, doing things around the house, etc. – and my back and shoulders don’t hurt after wearing it for so long. The shoulder straps are thick and padded, and that helps keep the comfort level even higher.
- The hold. I don’t have to worry about the constant feeling like Carly may fall out. Because she is high on my chest, right in front of me, I know she’s there, safe and secure. Plus, because the hold uses both shoulders equally, there’s so much less strain on my back.
- The styles available. I love the colors and patterns available in the Boba carriers. They have so many options from simple solid colors to bright, bold patterns. The style I selected for this review is the Soho. I just love the fun, unique pattern on the front. I can wear it dressed up or dressed down, and it always looks good.
The Boba carrier retails for $125 and is worth every penny. I see myself using the carrier quite a bit over the next few years. It’s definitely an investment worth making if you are looking for a comfortable, easy to put on baby carrier that will make you and baby happy.
Overall, I am quite impressed with Boba and will continue to use our new Boba carrier often. I would also highly recommend it to anyone that prefers a front, back, or side style carrier. As Carly gets older, I plan to try out all the different ways I can carrier her, and I will share more pictures and thoughts as I do.
