There are many baby gear items I have used with all three of my children, however, a carrier is not one of them! When I first became a mom I didn't think much about using a carrier. Kaelyn was very independent and as an only child, she was easy to carry or push in a stroller. That all changed once Kaden was born though. As I chased around a busy toddler all day, I knew I needed a way to keep my new baby safe and happy. That's when I began babywearing and am so happy I did. Having had such a great experience with it, I knew I would do the same with Caysen. It's much easier to have him in a carrier when we're outdoors, on walks, out shopping or even at home. It's been wonderful! I am always on the lookout for good quality carriers that are comfortable, convenient and stylish...and I know I can count on Boba for all that and more!
A couple of years ago, I had the opportunity to review the Boba Baby Carrier and absolutely love it! That's why I was thrilled to learn that they have announced a brand new Boba Carrier 3G! The carrier incorporates the Boba Baby Carrier design that I already know and love, but now includes several new and updated features making it truly one of a kind.
I was sent the Boba Carrier 3G in the Soho print/color.

Of course, after checking it over, I was excited to try it out. As with the Boba Baby Carrier, it was very easy to use! I have tried carriers in the past that were difficult to get strapped in, especially by myself. This however, was a piece of cake. As a busy mom, I appreciate the convenience and ease of use!
My husband and I both have found it to be very comfortable to wear! All straps are fully adjustable to fit parents anywhere from 5'0 to 6'3". My husband is on the tall end of that spectrum and still comfortably wears Caysen for long periods of time. It's so nice to have something that he and I can both wear! And the best part...there is no need to even buy an extension belt or accessory!
The Boba has a few extra inches of height as well which keeps your center of gravity closer to your body and supports your little one's back. It's ideal for both parent and baby!
When we use the Boba Carrier with Caysen, we use the Newborn Carry as he is right at 15 lbs now. We have also used it with Kaden and Kaelyn and used the back carry. Both ways are comfortable and as I said, very easy to put on. We had no problem at all! It's so versatile and works great for our growing family.
I love that the Boba Carrier comes with foot straps as well. The foot straps attach to the waist belt for a child's feet to sit in when they're a little bigger. It enables a healthy sitting position and proper leg support for the child. I appreciate that they can be removed when not in use. Kaden doesn't like them much yet, as he has shorter legs...but Kaelyn loves them!
If you're looking for a great baby carrier, I would recommend checking out Boba. You can purchase the Boba Carrier for $125.00 at BobaFamily.com.
