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.

Boba range

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.

Boba 4G Carrier VailThe 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.

Boba 4G KangarooWith 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.

Boba 4G MoabOther 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?

Boba Carrier – New look, new features

In the very early days of Hip little one I wrote about the Boba Carrier, a fantastic soft structured baby carrier that made going out with the kids so much easier for me. I first started using this carrier just over two years ago, wearing my chubby one year old son in it. At the time I was pregnant with baby number three and even though the baby belly was growing rapidly I used the Boba nearly every day with ease.

Once the baby was born I could hardly wait for her to reach the minimum weight for the Boba Carrier, luckily she got there quickly so I could get out and about with the twins in the double pram and baby in the Boba. People always commented on how comfortable she looked in there and they still do. Both hubby and I love the Boba Carrier so much that we actually have two, we keep one at home and one in the car so we always have one within reach.

My baby has changed a lot since that photo was taken and so has the Boba Carrier. The new, revamped Boba Carrier is now suitable for newborns as little as 3.5kg up to 20kg, so most mums can starting using the carrier from the very early days all the way up to the toddler stage. This wide weight range makes the Boba a fabulous investment for families. The Boba Carrier can be worn at the front and at the back so it is really versatile.

It is obvious that the original Boba Carrier has undergone a little beauty makeover too, the new Boba is available in five different styles with gorgeous new fabrics like Lila, Tweet and (my favourite) Soho. Priced at USD $125 the Boba Carrier is a stylish and affordable alternative to some of the big names with a rather expensive price tag. If you are not convinced yet why not go try it out for yourself at one of the Boba stockists, there are Boba stockists in many countries worldwide.

I was already very impressed by the high quality and clever features of the original Boba Carrier so I have no doubt this new release is well worth the money. If you were to make a list of things you are looking for in a carrier the Boba Carrier will tick all the boxes for sure. Let’s hope I am lucky enough to add to my brood one day so I can try out the fabulous newborn hold which looks fantastic!
