My kids love going to the park. They can spend hours playing and exploring when the weather is nice. I am happy to get them out of the house but it is not always easy to hold my five month old while pushing my four year on the swings or helping her across the monkey bars. Recently I was given the opportunity to try out the Boba Baby Wrap and I knew it would be perfect for our park adventures.
The Boba Baby Wrap is a baby carrier with no buckles, snaps or straps. It is basically a long strip of stretchy fabric that you wrap around your torso and tie. The fabric supports the baby’s hips and knees so that they are not hanging in the carrier creating pressure points on their developing spine and hips.
The fabric used for the Boba Baby Wrap has more stretch than other wrap carriers I have tried. I liked the added stretch. It helps hold the baby snug against your body and leaves your hands free to catch your preschooler as she comes barreling down the slide head first destined for a mouth full of sand if you don’t grab her quick. I found the extra stretchiness of the Boba helped it fit better than other wrap carriers especially for a plus sized woman like myself. I also was happy to discover that I was able to discreetly nurse my baby in the wrap, HANDS FREE!
The only negative thing I have to say about the Boba Baby Wrap, and pretty much any wrap carrier, is that it is a LOT of fabric to deal with. When you are putting on the carrier the fabric will probably touch the ground. This means that if you put it on while out and about it may get dirty . Luckily the Boba is washable so if it gets to dirty you can wash it on delicate and air dry.
The Boba Baby Wrap is a great carrier for any mother or caregiver who wants to hold their baby close and still have their hands free.
