I don't know much about the Boba, but I have a friend who swears by her Beco Gemini. One disadvantage of the Ergo is you can't wear the baby facing outward -- and my son loves to face out, so we haven't used our Ergo in a long time :(

Carriers are so different based on your body type. We got the ergo because it is really popular in our area but it really pulled on my shoulders and hips. I'm 5'3 and 128 lbs. then I bought beco butterfly and I loved it! See if you can go to a shop where they let you try them on.

Good luck!

I love my Ergo, but not for infants!!  I bought the infant insert and it was awful and bulky and I was worried he couldn't breathe.  But since about  5 months (he's 1 1/2 now) we use it ALL time--around the house as a side carry, and back carry for hiking.   For an infant, I highly recommend just a long stretchy wrap, baby lies so nice and to your body, it's like wearing them as clothing.

I've only tried the ergo but we like it! DD is only 10 weeks old. I never got the infant insert, I just used a blanket and now I don't use anything. She's always had good neck control, though.

I really love it! I'm telling you...it is all about your frame and body type. My sister is about my size and I ordered one from Amazon for her. She is a couple months away from delivering. But she is excited to use it.

Good luck and congrats!

I love love love my Olives & Applesauce carrier :) It's a SSC, the same idea as an Ergo and what have you, but I didn't like the Ergo for me. The straps cut into me, it didn't feel as supportive etc.  My friend is a babywearing guru and she suggested it.  Now we have two ;)  I love that it's a WAHM that does them, the custom prints are so pretty, and I could order it any way I wanted (with a built-in infant insert, longer straps etc.).  Next baby might have to get another carrier... a half buckle, this time!
