I LOVE my boba. After using MaiTais, I switched to boba and it is so much more comfortable on the back, even with baby getting bigger and bigger.
I really enjoy the Boba, but I also have the Beco Gemini and love it!

Taking notes, since I thought I wanted an Ergo (found it for $79), but now... I'm thinking Beco or Boba. But, in the end... I may not buy one... so many choices...
ETA: Looks like baby cannot face forward in the Boba. So, maybe Beco.
I agree, Beco is much better! I had an Ergo, very good carrier but way to bulky. I tried the Boba, its mainly for older kinds, didn’t work for us. If it counts for anything, it looked like a Beco/Ergo copy, so I guess it might do the trick if you have a 1 year old.
I have used an ergo and beco butterfly. The ergo seems more bulky and short on the kids back. I like the beco as its back is higher giving child more support. there is a piece of fabric on the inside between adult and child where you can toss them on your back. You can get a beco from Frog Mama in seconds/used for really good prices.
I like Beco first, then Ergo then Boba.

The boba fits my body type better and feels more streamlined. I feel like the higher back keeps her in more securely as well, since she likes to wriggle around. I'm also a fan of the stirrups as they will keep her hips in proper alignment as she grows.
I bought both my carries in organic, but I really like that the boba is made in the USA.
Looks like the beco has quite a following here though. May have to look into it!
This is a great comparison of different types of baby carriers, with pros and cons. I found it on the Boba site!
I have always gravitated toward the Moby wrap and the Boba, eager to try them!! Glad to hear that many of you have had such positive experiences with the Boba...the Ergo did not feel comfortable to me the one time I used it (as a nanny).
