Organic Baby Carrier by Boba

There are many benefits to carrying your baby in a carrier. Studies indicate that babies who are carried in a carrier CRY LESS compared to those that aren’t. In our modern society of expensive and trendy strollers and other “containers”, it is a pity that many parents are unaware of the concept of carrying your baby in a carrier, which costs a fraction of the cost of most strollers and offers many more benefits. Lets examine some of the sensory and motor experiences of babywearing and contrast them with the same baby in a stroller. A baby in a stroller is physically away from mom/dad’s body, and usually can’t see his parents or smell them or even hear their voices. He lies passively on his back in his stroller, and may be confused and even disoriented, with no human touch to soothe or reassure him. A baby positioned correctly in a carrier is worn close to mom/dad’s body. He can feel their heartbeat, see their faces, hear them talk, smell them and is reassured by their touch. Bonding occurs without any hassles and successful breastfeeding is more likely with baby being carried against mom’s body. The baby in the carrier is not lying flat on his back, but rather in a range of positions which will place less pressure on his skull, reducing his risk of developing plagiocephaly. He moves with mom/dad and in turn receives vestibular stimulation. He is actively engaging his muscles as he shifts to maintain his balance as mom/dad move. He is working on developing his head control and strengthening his muscles, unlike the baby in the stroller, who remains passively on his back. The baby in the carrier is receiving what is essentially a swaddling like effect in the carrier which calms him via proprioceptive input to his joints. Mom/dad are more in tune with his needs, as they are very close to him. He can look up and see their faces.

There are many soft carriers on the market to select from. We have previously featured the Boba Baby Wrap, one of our favorite wraps and today we are focusing on the Boba Baby Carrier. Introducing the 3G Baby Carrier from Boba. Boba is a Soft Structured Carrier (SSC) that is intended for babies and children between 7-45lbs. Carry options include both front and back carry. The Boba Baby Carrier is available in a regular and organic version. We will be highlighting the Organic Baby Carrier today. The Organic Baby Carrier is available in 3 different color options: Chestnut, Pine and Walnut.  The Boba Organic carriers are made with 100% Organic cotton and are free from any potential harmful materials or dyes.

The 3G Baby Carrier offers some significant improvements over the past 1G and 2G models, per the chart below:

Boba offers several innovative features not seen on other carriers:

  • The foot straps attached to the waist belt keep older children comfortable while enabling a healthy sitting position. The footstraps not only give tired little legs a rest, but support the legs in a flexed abducted (froglike) position which naturally tilts the pelvis, fills out the hip sockets and aligns the spine.
  • The new infant conversion option allows you to use the Boba Carrier 3G with babies over 7lbs. The best part is that there is absolutely no insert or accessory needed! Simply follow the instruction booklet included with your Boba Carrier to learn how to use the new Boba Carrier 3G for your newborn.
  • Boba has a few extra inches of height to keep your center of gravity closer to your body and support your little one’s back. The Boba Carrier 3G is approximately 2-3”  higher than other soft structured carriers.
  • The new 3G design is made to fit parents of all shapes and sizes without purchasing an extension belt or accessory. All straps are fully adjustable, and elastic bands are provided so you can comfortably tuck the straps away once you have the carrier adjusted for you and your child.


The 3G Boba Baby Carrier is designed to support babies from 7 lbs and up – new insert required. This is unique design is only found on the 3G model.


Organic Baby Carrier Chestnut

Left: Boba is designed with a few extra inches of height to keep your center of gravity closer to your body and support your little one’s back. This in turn reduces shoulder strap pressure and helps you maintain a good posture. In addition, your child has the option to put their arms in or out of the carrier. A purse strap holder on the shoulder straps is a new feature which will allow moms to carry less when running short errands.

Right: The innovative sleeping hood supports baby’s neck in a neutral position during nap times and shields him from the elements. It removes easily for versatility. New for the 3G model are the adjustment straps and zipper pocket on the hood which adjusts to support a newborn hold and adds additional storage respectively.

Organic Baby Carrier Walnut

What makes the Boba very unique is that it features foot straps (attached to the waist belt) for the child’s feet to be placed in, thereby enabling a healthy sitting position for the child. Obtaining the 90-90 posture (approximate joint angles at hip and knee) is favored by many pediatric experts when referencing ergonomic seating positions. The footstraps not only give little tired legs a rest, but support the legs in a flexed abducted (froglike) position. In addition, the foot straps may have a calming effect on fussy babies due to the proprioceptive input to the feet.

Despite the Boba Baby Carrier being very lightweight, it is  designed with safety in mind. Correctly worn, the Boba will support baby in an ergonomic position by placing baby in a seated position with abduction of the hips (knees apart) with the weight off the spine with hip flexion greater than 90 degrees (baby’s bottom is lower than knees). This position looks similar to a “squatting position” which toddlers assume throughout the day. For the adult, the well padded wide shoulder straps and the supportive waist band (to be worn on the hip for shorter people) help to distribute baby’s weight evenly, thus minimizing shoulder and back pain. The waistband is now adjustable from 25″-58″ (new extended length) to accommodate most parents. The multiple pockets (new) allow parents to store essential while on the go. Even the most well designed and constructed carrier must be worn correctly to reap the benefits. Our veteran engineer commented that the Boba Carrier is well designed and constructed, is streamlined in design and offers quality finishes and components. The back position requires some practice to hoist baby onto your back, but can be easily mastered by having someone spot you, with the bed and mirror close by for the initial few times.

The fabric is lightweight yet strong and super soft against both the baby and the wearers skin. It is important to select products with organic fabrics whenever possible, as the skin is our largest organ and it readily absorbs chemicals. Conventional cotton is grown with many pesticides and herbicides which can be directly absorbed into the skin when wearing clothing. Organic cotton on the other hand is produced with no chemicals and is a healthier alternative, particularly for baby’s sensitive skin. From an environmental point of view, we only have one earth and we need to do everything that we can to protect it for future generations. Pesticides and chemicals wreak havoc with the earth’s fragile ecosystem and the toxic chemicals end up in our water supply and food chain, which can have disastrous consequences.

Our test panel reported that the carrier felt extremely comfortable to wear throughout their day and made grocery shopping a breeze. The Boba can be tucked away into the waist belt when not in use saving the wearer precious time by not having to put it on and take it off frequently. One parent reported that when wearing baby in the back position, they noticed an improvement in their own posture! In addition, baby fell asleep immediately and when it was time to set her down, they were able to transition her from carrier to crib without her waking. Careful thought, skill and planning has gone into creating this very unique design.

We have reviewed many, many carriers over the years, but this one is very special. Most structured carriers are very heavy and hard to wear in the summer months, but the Boba is well designed for year round use. The new 3G design extends the age range of the carrier from 7-45lbs making it a terrific buy!

Organic Teething Pads


The Boba Organic Teething Pads are made to snap around the shoulder strap of your Boba Baby Carrier. The teething pads are 100% Organic Cotton, reversible and free of potentially-dangerous chemicals and dyes. They’re completely safe for babies who want to chew everything in sight – particularly your Boba Carrier. The Teething Pads are a fantastic accessory and will help to keep your Boba clean and dry while keeping baby content.  The Teething pads will reduce the need to wash your entire Boba when baby chews on just the straps, saving you time and energy and keeping your Boba looking new and fresh.

Boba Baby Wrap

William Sears, MD and Martha Sears, RN came up with the phrase “Babywearing” which refers to carrying your baby in a soft carrier close to your body, while you continue with your activities of daily living. They did not invent the concept, which has been around for quite some time, and is a common sight in many developing countries.

Why should I consider carrying my baby in a soft carrier?

There are many benefits to carrying your baby in a soft carrier. Studies indicate that babies who are carried in a soft carrier CRY LESS compared to those that aren’t. When you carry your baby in a soft carrier, you are mimicking the baby’s environment in the womb, which will help baby to make a smooth transition from womb to world. In our modern society of expensive and trendy strollers and other “containers”, it is a pity that many parents are unaware of the concept of carrying your baby in a soft carrier, which costs a fraction of the cost of most strollers and offers many more benefits.

Wraps are the ideal choice particularly in the initial few months of an infants life. A wrap is the perfect way to carry your baby in the 4th Trimester, “mimicking the womb” in every sense of the word. Carrying your baby in a soft carrier allows your baby to experience movement (like a swing provides), soothing tactile and proprioceptive feedback (as a swaddled baby would feel), while baby can smell mom/dad and hear a reassuring heartbeat. This will make the transition from womb to world much easier.

Introducing the Boba Baby Wrap, the perfect wrap style carrier – with its unique fabric blend and the no-guesswork tying, the Boba Wrap is a great choice for beginners and advanced babywearers alike. The simple design of this baby wrap, free of buckles, straps or buttons makes it perfectly comfortable for both you and your baby. By evenly distributing the weight of your child, there is no time limit to how long your baby can stay in the wrap, so you may calm and sooth your baby with your warmth, your voice, your movement and your heart beat as long as you are both content!

Organic Boba Wrap

Organic Boba Wrap

The Boba Baby Wrap is available in regular and organic versions and a variety of beautiful colors. The fabric is soft and feels wonderful against your skin and baby’s skin. The fabric has lycra in it which will help the wrap retain its shape over time, unlike the majority of wraps on the market which lack lycra. It is addition, it will support the weight of older babies, offering terrific value. The wrap is perfect for beginners. It is recommended to practice in front of a mirror with either a doll or large stuffed animal. It usually takes 3-5 tries before you will feel comfortable but you will soon be a pro! Please note that you do tie the Boba Wrap differently than other baby wraps. Instructions for tying the Boba Wrap can be found here. Baby Wrap Safety Tips can be found here. The cradle hold and other horizontal positions are no longer recommended for safety reasons. Instead, for newborns, try the Newborn Hold.  Video instructions are available here. Older babies are well suited to the “love-your-baby” hold.

The Boba Baby Wrap will provide a wonderful opportunity for bonding, help moms learn to recognise and respond faster to their baby’s cues, has unlimited sensory motor benefits for your baby, help moms breastfeed while on the go and free up hands to keep up the chores.
