Oh Baby! Extravaganza - Boba Baby Carrier Review and Giveaway!!!

                                                
Like most moms, I struggle to find the perfect house work to attentive mother ratio. It can be very difficult to get all the laundry, dishes and cleaning done when you have little ones who need your loving touch and attention throughout the day. Thank goodness for companies like Boba! With one of their stylish baby carriers you don't have to choose between your messy kitchen and holding your little one. You can keep your baby happy and content while still keeping a peacefully clean home! Let me tell you, this is a life saver when you're busy, they are sick, teething or just needing some extra TLC.


One of the things I love is that this is an ergonomically correct baby carrier. This means that it offers all of the support baby needs preventing unnecessary pressure on their little pelvis. They are in a seated position that supports their hips, pelvis and legs. Basically, they are sitting, not hanging. Not only does it offer perfect support for baby, but it is comfortable for parents too. With a hip, shoulder and back strap, the weight of your child is perfectly distributed so that you don't get those sore shoulders often felt with other carriers. I was also impressed at how well it fit both my husband and myself. I am 5'1 and my husband is 6', that is quite the range! I have a shorter torso and was concerned in would be too long for me and too short for my husbands considerably longer one. I was pleasantly surprised when it fit us both perfectly. Every strap is adjustable so it's a breeze getting that perfect fit.



I've mentioned all of the practical reasons for owning a Boba Baby Carrier, now I will tell you some of my less practical reasons. I was sent their Soho print, so perfect for spring! There is nothing wrong with the simple and solid baby carriers, but it is so fun having something bright and festive instead. I had a hard time choosing between their beautiful fabrics. An added plus, they change with the seasons. I love knowing that I have a fairly unique print. It will only be available for a few months before they come out with newer fabrics. I was sad to see a few of their past prints go away, but I was more than happy with the new prints. Who doesn't want a fashionable baby carrier?


Overall, I am extremely impressed by the quality of my Boba carrier. The quality of the fabric and stitching is top notch. It is very durable, yet soft enough for my son. As mentioned before, it is extremely comfortable which is important if you need to wear it for an extended time. It is obvious that a lot of thought was put in to the creation of this carrier, there is even a hood you can snap up over their head if it is hot and they need a bit of shade. I would absolutely say this is a must have for any parent who needs but does not have that extra set of hands.With a carrier that is made to hold infants from 7lbs to toddlers up to 40lbs, this is a long term investment that will last you a few years. Definitely money well spent!
