I have always been a fan of baby wearing and keeping baby close, and with all three of my boys I have used a very simple baby carrier. It was time to retire the old baby carrier though, and so I started my search for a new baby carrier. I soon realized that the baby carrier market had exploded, since I had my first son ten years ago. I checked out baby carriers in many different colors, patterns, styles and with many different functions, but when I discovered the Boba baby carrier, I knew that I had found the perfect baby carrier for my baby girl and me.
This time around I was eager to find a baby carrier that could be used for a longer time, one that was fashionable and which would allow me to carry baby close while getting things done. The Boba baby carrier called my name, and I chose the beautiful award-winning Boba Carrier 3G in the SOHO design.
My experience with the Boba Carrier 3G started out with hesitancy, as I was a bit overwhelmed when the Boba Carrier first arrived. After watching a video on the Boba Family website, I felt more comfortable with the task ahead of me. I carefully followed the instructions from the video as well as the instructions in the booklet, and slowly but steadily I successfully transformed my Boba Carrier from a regular baby carrier into an infant baby carrier.
For the first 2 months, I used the Boba Carrier as an infant carrier, where Bellamy Blue was snuggled inside as close as possible. As she grew older and increased in weight, I have now been able to change the infant carrier into a baby carrier, where she has her feet outside of the carrier.
Bellamy Blue has used the Boba baby carrier a lot over the past couple of months, and it has saved me on many occasions at home. My little girl spent the first two months in my arms or closely snuggled to me at all times, and it made her feel safe and comforted. We have had several relatives come to stay with us since her birth, and they have all been amazed by how calm and quite this little girl is. Don’t get me wrong, she can let me know, if she wants or need something. She just starts in a conversational mode, turns up the volume a bit, and then if I do not react, she will start screaming. Still, I strongly believe that keeping my baby so close during the first two months have helped tremendously with calming down the baby and making me more aware of her signals.
Here my son and I are wrapping, while the baby is in the Boba carrier. We managed to wrap about 30 gifts for birthdays and Christmas, and we did so with no problems, since the Boba carrier enabled me to have my hands free. As you can see, the baby is snuggled closely in the Boba Carrier, I was able to cut through wrapping paper and such, all while she was sleeping comfortable with her airways clear.
One of my favorite parts of the Boba infant carrier is that you can adjust the back, so that it fits perfectly and thereby supports the baby’s neck in a gentle way. Below you can see the snap buttons, which makes it easy to change the level of neck support as baby grows.
Another one of my favorite features of the Boba Baby Carrier is that it has a removable sun cover, which stores away neatly in the Boba carrier. I actually discovered the sun cover, on a rainy day, when the kids and I were surprised by a shower on the way home from the playground. I simply pulled out the cover, and the baby was safely shielded by the elements temper while we walked home.
I could go on and on about the awesome features of the Boba baby carrier, but one feature that must be highlighted is the tiny pocket at the bottom of the carrier, which can keep my keys or some money. I did not even know that I needed this feature, but it has proved itself quite valuable, whenever I take the kids to a nearby playground, run out to get the paper etc. The fact that it eliminates the need for a purse is just priceless, and I also love that it makes my keys within reach.
As a mom of four, I am constantly on the go, and the kids and I walk to the stores, parks, playgrounds, the YMCA and such in our area. This means that we often have a packed stroller, which is why I am thrilled that the Boba carrier takes up very little place under the stroller. It can even fit in the storage compartment under our tiny umbrella stroller, if we have to use public transportation.
Why We Love The Boba Baby Carrier:
The Boba Carrier 3G is just what I was looking for, because it is great for infants, older babies and toddlers. We used it from Bellamy Blue was just a few weeks old, and it is growing with her.
