Okay a Manduca, Ergo, and Boba are all referred to as Soft-Structured Carriers (SSCs). They all have the same basic construction of a buckle waist and arm straps and can be used for front and back carries. Manduca's can't be sold in the US because Ergo sued for copyright infringement (they really aren't that similar) but Ergos and Bobas are more easily found. A smaller maker in the se category that I personally find much more comfy is Kindercarry who is a WAHM that makes Kinderpacks. I honestly don't really recommend SSCs for newborns. Many babies find they aren't as snuggly as they would like. They tend to be better starting around 3-4 months old.
