Babywearing.......I love babywearing. I love the way that my little man snuggles right in to the sound of my beating heart and is comfy and safe on my chest (or back) For the longest time I have raved about the Boba 2G & 3G baby carrier......It is the most comfortable carrier that I have tried and love everything about it!
And once again BOBA has hit the nail on the head with their new baby carrier, the BobaAir!!! For the longest time I have wanted a baby carrier that was super lightweight for camping, hiking, and just for keeping in the diaper bag. I love being able to have a carrier in the diaper bag (not taking up the whole thing) and not having to remember one every time we go out. The BobaAir is simple to use, ultra lightweight and ergonomic! The perfect carrier for travelers or any parent on the go – when you’re done, just fold, zip & stash.
The BobaAir is very simple to use, comfortable to wear, and so very compact for travel. You just strap it on like any other soft structured baby carrier and you are good to go. It's the perfect carrier for world travelers or really any parent on the go – when you’re done all you have to do is fold it up, zip the (built in) pouch closed & stash away in your backpack or diaper bag.
What I love about it:
-First of all I love that it is so compact and easy to use. It is so easy to get in and out of its pouch and zips up nice and tight. I love the fact that I can take it with me, stash it in the cart or stroller and when he needs some snuggles or just to be close I have it right close by without taking up tons of space.
-I love that it weighs less than a pound (0.7lbs to be exact) you can throw it in your purse and still have room for everything else.
- Like the other Boba carriers the waist straps are nice and long so that extensions are not needed for larger (or pregnant) wearers.
-I love that the price is more reasonable for people that wouldn't be able to afford a nice baby carrier. It runs for $65 and is definitely worth the money.
-You can never loose the pouch because it folds into the pocket that you would normally store the hood in.....One less thing to keep up with!! It also is truly easy to fold up, unlike many other things that say you will be able to stick them right back in the package but know just by looking at it that it will never fit back in.
-I love that it is water resistant so that if we are out and about and its raining I can keep my little man as dry as possible while still getting things done.
What I am not too crazy about:
-I do love a carrier that can be used with an infant. The BobaAir can not be used with infants unlike the 3G which you very easily can.
-It has no padding so it isnt as comfortable as the 3G. I am not saying that it is uncomfortable at all, just not as cushy as the 3G. I never really got back aches with it. It just isn't like your baby is floating on air on your back like the 3G.
-The BobaAir doesn't really breathe any better than the 3G. It is 100% Nylon so it is VERY easy to clean and extremely durable. It would be nice if they could put some sort of mesh part or something that was breathable. D tends to sometimes get sweaty when I am carrying him in this carrier.
