We love babywearing in this house. (As if you didn’t know that already) A has even become more and more a fan of it since the Boba showed up at our front door. In fact, if I’m totally honest with you… I no longer own the Boba. A does. He has ever so kindly asked me not to touch his baby carrier because “I mess it up”. Since A has so much more experience with the Boba than I do, I thought about asking him to write this review… but he’s never blogged… let alone written a review, so I was a little worried about how it would turn out. Instead, I asked him a few questions about the Boba and here are his answers:
Why do you like the Boba better than any of the other carriers?
I find it easier to put on than any of the others. I’m not really sure why, but I do. It’s the only one that I feel comfortable putting on un-assisted.
If you had to design your own carrier, what one piece of the Boba would you use as “inspiration”?
The arm straps
What do you think M’s favorite part of the Boba is?
I don’t know. What kind of question is that? It is the only carrier that I’ve had him in that he doesn’t ever get tired of. Everything else he gets hot or uncomfortable and cries, but not with the Boba. So I would assume that he likes it, but he has yet to tell me one way or the other.
Now, if that wasn’t enough to convince you, let me go ahead and tell you what I do know (there were a few times where I ignored him and used HIS carrier). The Boba is SUPER lightweight. It disperses the baby’s body weight fabulously and is very comfortable to wear. It is also very compact. It’s easy to fold up and take along on the go. We took it to the beach with us and it was a LIFESAVER. Every night the only way we were able to get our over-stimulated, over-tired baby boy to sleep was to pop him in the Boba and go for a walk. The Boba saves my sanity every day. A gets home from work to his tired, emotional, pregnant wife and when we both need a break… the Boba comes out. M will hang out on A’s back forever if we let him. He is so happy… I am so happy to just lay down and rest… and A is happy because he doesn’t have to slow down and stop whatever he had planned for the afternoon even though he’s got M.
