Boba Organic Carrier Review
Ever since my first child was born, I have enjoyed being a baby-wearing mommy. I started off with a cheapo carrier with
. It was okay, but I wanted something better. So I got a sling…still not satisfied. By the time I was pregnant with Kira, I knew I had to find a quality carrier. My friend gave me her Bjorn, and I loved it. However, it could only be worn with the baby on the front. Again I searched…and found 3 carriers I really wanted: ERGObaby, Beco and Boba. All 3 have very similar designs…but each one has a unique quality. Today, I have happy to share my thoughts on the Boba carrier. I received the Boba organic carrier to review. The organic line comes in 3 colors: Walnut, Pine & Chestnut. I love green, so I asked for Pine. It is a beautiful green and brown combo (as seen in the photo on the left)!
|Footstraps are an extra bonus!|
“Boba is a Soft Structured baby carrier (SSC) that is intended for children between 15 to 45 lbs. Boba has a few extra inches of height to keep your center of gravity closer to your body and support your little one’s back. The innovative thing about the Boba carrier is that there are foot straps attached to the waist belt for the child’s feet to sit in enabling a healthy sitting position for the child. The footstraps not only give little tired legs a rest, but support the legs in a flexed abducted (froglike) position which naturally tilts the pelvis, fills out the hip sockets, and aligns the spine.”
I plan on carrying both of my kids as long as I can… depending on if they will let me (my daughter is getting more independent the older she gets and demands to walk) and as long as they are under 45 lbs (the weight limit for the Boba Carrier).
Giving a child a piggyback ride is fine and dandy for a few minutes, but if you are going a long distance, hiking, shopping, etc. having a carrier like this will save your back and arms from growing tired.
Typically you will find my son in the shopping cart and my daughter in the carrier. Having a carrier has been a lifesaving on a number of trips to
. We live an hour away from the BIG city. So when we do make the trek down the mountain, we are there for over 4 hours. Many times my daughter will fall asleep in the carrier, and all I have to do is put the sleeping hood up so her head doesn’t bounce around. The carrier allows me to have my hands free and my baby girl safe while I get my shopping done.
So from walking in the backyard to a day at the zoo, a soft structured carrier is my choice of carrying my kids!
