With much delight I am here today to share the company Boba with you. I had not worn our first two girls, but soon realized after Macyn was born that baby wearing was a MUST this time around. Macyn is very clingy and loves to be cuddled and held all the time. I cannot get much done around the house because she doesn't sleep well unless she's ON me in some way. She also doesn't like to be alone, so she cannot sleep in her crib where there's real peace and quiet. We've also discovered that Macyn, like McKenzie, has a scensory issue so she needs to be touched, swaddled, close to something at all times to feel comfortable and not scream. After I noticed the signs and accepted this difficult journey, I wrote Boba with interest in their carrier. Not only did I contact them so I can wear Macyn around the house, but also because its Spring and then soon will be Summer which means the county fair, lots of outside time, and needing both of us to be comfortable while on our family adventures.


When it arrived in the mail, it was perfect timing because we were having oddly warm weather and it was in the 80s all the time. After being in the house all winter, we gladly spent time outside enjoying the weather and fresh air!

It only takes a couple minutes of Macyn being in the carrier for her to fall asleep and it happens every-time! Even if she's happy and awake, after we strap in and get walking around she's out like a light!

Lets not forget, this Boba can carry toddlers too!

McKenzie is about 29lbs and walks all the time so I have no personal reason to carry her BUT I wanted to see what it was like for a few minutes.

McKenzie thought it was funny to be so close and be carried around. It was a little heavy, but I think lighter than if I just picked her up and put her on my hip. I know if we were somewhere that she needed to be carried, I'd make my husband carry her on his back like in the stock photo above.

Madison is 4 1/2 yrs old now and was sad that I wouldn't put her in the Boba to carry around, but at 40lbs there was no way I wanted to carry her lol. She is pretty light but I think we can all agree she's more than big enough to walk.

The Boba Carrier retails on their site for $125 and comes in seven different colors/designs

This carrier incorporates the Boba Baby Carrier design that so many have come to know and love, and now includes more than a dozen new and updated features, making this truly a one of a kind baby carrier! This carrier features a high-quality cotton fabric, ideal for any activity, both indoors and out.

I really hope I win. Hubby has been eyeing this one for him but we can't afford it after we bought a wrap. He doesn't like the wrap because he says it's too complicated for him.
