ETA: I was just informed that winner will be getting the brand new Boba 2G! This retails for $118 and this giveaway right here is the very first one to feature it! I'm so excited to have the chance to offer this to all my lovely readers.
After I tried the Sleepy Wrap in December and found that Lucy was past that stage, the wonderful people over at NAP, Inc. sent me their other carrier to try. The Boba is built especially for toddlers. Its sturdy, easy to get into, and comfortable. The age range starts at 1 year and goes up to 4 so I was very excited to try this out.
The Boba hold's toddlers from 15-45 pounds.
Its machine washable.
Made from organic cotton.
Contains foot straps for extra hip support.
And it can be worn in the front or back.
Retails for $118
My review: This is the absolute perfect carrier for fidgety toddlers!
I'm positive that hanging out in the Boba has been Lucy's favorite babywearing experience. When I first put her in it I was amazed at how easy it was. There is something to be said for not having to tie anything. Wrap or tie carriers are great for babies but with a toddler you need to be able to get them secure in the blink of an eye. The Boba has 2 strong, but simple, snaps. It requires no wresting or extra hands. In fact, every time I've put Lucy in this no one has been around to get a picture because its so easy for us to do when we're by ourselves. The product is unbelievably supportive. Lucy laughed and giggled when would do my lunges and squats with her in it. She enjoyed the bouncing and I liked the little extra workout!
The true testament of how much we both like it is this: sometimes she'll see it laying around the house and hand it to me because she actually wants in it!
I must also add this: the people over at NAP Inc. are amazing to work with. Out of all the companies I've been in contact with for reviews there are few I can say that I love. Boba (and all of NAP Inc) is one of those few. This company goes above and beyond when it comes to customer service, Mommies. I do hope you will look into them when you need either a wrap or a carrier.
Not too girly for daddy's to wear!
