Pros: beautiful, durable, washable, comfortable
Cons: back carry can be difficult
I have been using the Boba 3G with my 9 month old and it has been a really good fit for us. The padding in the Boba is generous and makes it comfortable for mom/dad. The straps are adjustable and accommodate a vast range of sizes. I am 5'11 and had no trouble with sizing. My son is rather tall and he was very comfortable in the boba too. The only trouble we had was that the leg openings rubbed his thighs a bit, leaving a red mark. (Now I just put lightweight pants on him to prevent this from happening--also we are playing with the adjustable straps to prevent this from happening even when he is not wearing pants!) The carrier has a hood to pull up over a sleeping baby, which is helpful so their head isn't flopping around! It's very easy to use for a front carry, but the back carry did give me a little trouble. I think I just need more practice. I was really looking forward to using this for outdoor events like the zoo, and after trying it out around the house and on walks around the neighborhood, I think it will be perfect for indoor and outdoor use! I highly recommend this product for older babies (6 mo+). Being hands free AND close to my sweet boy makes so many things easier--thanks for the great product BOBA!!!!!
