may know, I am a baby-wearing type of mom. I love bringing Squishy with me to the grocery store, mall, park, etc. However, I don’t like lugging around his car seat and attaching it to a shopping cart, or putting him in the stroller. I love using a baby carrier instead. I love the closeness a baby carrier gives mom and baby. I love hugging Squishy to bits, and so a baby carrier is just perfect for us.
Boba Inc. recently announced the brand new Boba Carrier 3G– a baby carrier that now includes more than a dozen new and updated features. The Boba Carrier 3G features a high-quality cotton fabric and is ideal for any activity (indoors or out!). Available in 4 patterns and 3 solid color combinations, the Boba Carrier 3G is a great option for any baby wearing family. Compared to other baby carriers, the Boba Carrier 3G has a few extra inches of height to support your baby’s back better. This is my favorite feature because Squishy is very tall for his age and this carrier does a great job of supporting his long back.
Up for review, I chose the Boba Carrier 3G in Soho, a beautiful red-hued patterned Boba Carrier. Soho is one of the newest print additions to the Boba Carrier collection, so I was really excited to receive it. The Boba Carrier 3G is designed for infants and toddlers between 7-45lbs. Squishy currently weighs 20lbs, so the Boba Carrier is a really good fit for him right now. The infant conversion option is a new feature that allows you to use the Boba Carrier 3G with newborns over 7lbs. There is no insert or accessory needed for this option which makes it easier for new parents to use this carrier. Other Carriers I’ve tried have a newborn insert that you have to attach, so it’s nice knowing that you don’t have to take that extra step when using the Boba Carrier 3G.
There is a removable sleeping hood that comes with the baby carrier that you can adjust to fit your baby. When you’re not using the sleeping hood, simply store it in the zipper pouch for later use. There are also multiple pockets throughout the carrier which make it easier for you to store snacks, your keys, money, and even your cell phone when you’re on the go. I love this feature because when I’m carrying Squishy, I generally don’t like to carry anything else besides my diaper bag (purse, wallet, phone, etc) so I can easily put some of my important belongings in the Boba Carrier 3G instead.
Another feature I like about the Boba Carrier 3G is the foot straps that attach to the waist belt. The foot straps help keep toddlers comfortable while allowing for a healthy sitting position. The foot straps support their legs in a “frog-like” position which naturally tilts the pelvis, fills out the hip sockets, and aligns the spine. When Squishy is older I can be assured that he will be comfortable in a seated position when using this carrier, unlike others that do not come with foot straps.
Boba 4G Carrier, Dusk, 0- 48 Months
The Boba Carrier 3G is designed to comfortably fit heights 5’0″ to 6’3″ with a waistband range from 25″ to 58″. This baby carrier can fit parents of all shapes and sizes without purchasing an extension belt of accessory. The straps of the Boba Carrier 3G are fully adjustable and the elastic bands are provided, so you can tuck the straps away once the carrier is adjusted for you and baby. The Boba Carrier 3G supports a front and back carrier position which is convenient when I’m shopping and need both of my hands (back carrier position) or when I’m walking at the park and want to hug Squishy (front carrier position). We really love the Boba Carrier 3G. It is very easy to use and I don’t struggle trying to put it on like I have in the past with other carriers.
