Boba 3G Baby Carrier Review + GIVEAWAY

`` (

Hello everyone!! Bitter cold here so thinking about carriers and snuggling up with a baby is very appealing!  Our baby carrier series continues today with a super carrier, the Boba 3G.  I’m also thrilled to announce our FEBRUARY GIVEAWAY that begins today  — we’re giving away one of these awesome carriers to one lucky winner!  I’m crossing my fingers for you.

Boba 3G ReviewPin for later!

The Boba 3G Baby Carrier

The Boba 3G is a great option for moms looking for style, comfort, and versatility!  In fact, the Boba comes in many different colors and designs that you won’t have trouble finding one to match your personal style (and dad’s!).  And it’s not just for baby!  While, the Boba 3G is perfect for newborns, its generous width of the carrier also can accommodate a toddler of 45 pounds!  In addition to its versatility, another feature of the Boba I love is its removable headrest, ideal for protecting your baby’s face on sunny days, or for privacy while nursing.  When not in use, the headrest folds easily into the carrier and out of the way.  Finally, another great component of the Boba is the zippered pocket, ideal for Mommy’s metro card, credit card, or lipstick!  For a demo of these features, watch my video.

Baby Wearing

Ok, so now that I’ve run through the features of the Boba, here are a few thoughts on baby wearing with the Boba 3G and on why this carrier is a great solution for any family.  The strong buckle on the waistband ensures your baby’s safety, while the t-strap buckle near the top of the carrier conveniently adjusts for a mom or dad of any height!  The comfortable, padded side straps adjust just as easily, much like a regular backpack. Watch my video and the read the owner’s manual for further instructions.

Thanks for watching and stay tuned for more demo videos with the Boba 3G!

  • Trenda Tillson

    Crossing my fingers, I just had a new baby boy in December and this would be fantastic!

  • jayline llamas

    It might be nice to splurge on a baby carrier like this, that mom and baby can both enjoy. I have one, but my baby is growing bigger by the day; he’s only 3 months and weighs 17 pnds already, and while he loves it, mommy not so much: the straps are thin, and my shoulders start to hurt a lil bit after a couple of minutes. I also like the fact that you can actually breastfeed with privacy, and without having to “undress” the whole thing, since it takes quite some time lol. I love it specially when i go for walks and stay active, and even more when grocery shopping, i just pop baby on his carrier, and im hands free, which is awesome because being a single mom with a fully breastfed baby can be a handful… so having a quality product like this one can
    be so helpful and a must have for single mommas out there!

  • Theresa Hover

    I’ve hear these are a really great carrier. This would be great for the longer hikes and walks we like to do.
