For a while baby wearing seemed to be a bit out of fashion and more a ‘hippy’ thing to do but (thankfully) times have changed as more and more benefits of baby wearing are becoming known to parents around the globe. Mums and dads of all ages and all walks of life have taken on baby wearing and I am a big fan myself, I could not imagine parenting without it. It’s an easy mode of transport, a convenient way to keep your hands free and a gentle tool to hold baby close and soothe an unsettled child, there are so many things to love about baby wearing.
As more people take on baby wearing there are also more and more stylish designs available, Avidiva has just welcomed brand new stock of the popular Boba Carrier and it’s gorgeous. I have owned a Boba carrier myself for several years now and still love it, they’re super safe and easy to use, extremely comfortable and have a great modern look that suits both mothers and fathers.
The Boba 4G Carrier (RRP $189) is a versatile baby carrier that is jam packed with great features, there is nothing I don’t like about it. The Boba 4G can be worn front and back and features easy to use, adjustable buckles around the waist and chest/back, this makes it easy to put on/off and to swap between wearers. The waist and shoulder straps are strong and padded for extra comfort, I still carried my 20 month old in my Boba when I was 6 months pregnant without any trouble.
With a weight range of 3.1 kg up to 20.4 kg the Boba 4G will carry you all the way from birth to toddler and beyond. For comparison: All four of my children (aged 1-6) fall within this range and yes, my 4 year old still loves to be carried sometimes when her little legs get tired after a long walk. Unlike with some other brands the newborn insert, which allows babies to sit in a healthy ‘froggy’ position, is included so there are no additional costs for little extras, as baby grows the insert can simply be removed.
Other handy features include the removable sleep hood that keep sun, rain, wind and nosy passers-by at bay and a clever smart phone pocket for when you’re out and about without a bag. The Boba 4G weighs in at less than 1kg, that’s a world of difference with a heavy pram! You will have your hands free, fit through busy crowds and narrow aisles, your baby can sleep whenever and wherever he wants and you get to kiss that gorgeous little head all day long, what more do you want?
