Boba Baby Carrier 3GProduct Rating: Product Review (submitted on November 6, 2012):
I researched a lot before purchasing this carrier and am so glad I decided to give the Boba 3G a try; I would not want to be without this carrier!
I have used it twice daily (on average) with my daughter since she was about 3 months old; she is now 9 months old and this carrier is one of her favourite places to be (awake or asleep). We walk together taking her oldest brother to school (rain or shine), shop together, perform household chores.. it's convenient, comfortable and nurturing for both of us.
I use to own an Ergo carrier original, and also have a Moby wrap, but this carrier is the only one I really use; I love it. I have only one small criticism: the hood pocket is too small making re-insertion difficult and time-consuming (I either leave it dangling out for use in case weather gets cold/rainy or detach it using snaps it comes with - creating an even more minimalist/sleek style).
I am 5'4", 108lbs, and this carrier fits my small frame without feeling bulky. It is fast and easy to adjust and my muscular husband :) wears it sometimes too, which pleases my daughter just as it does when I wear it. I often use the small pocket in the front of the waist band for keys/cash/bank cards leaving me totally hands free. I've tried using the purse securing snaps but think my bag's strap was too wide so I gave up, without regret.
I front carry my 9 month old but have carried my 2 yr old about a mile in it using the back carry; he was definitely heavier but it was still a nice experience for us both.
Ultimately - one of the best "baby-related" purchases I've made.
