Me and my Boba (GIVEAWAY!)

Farmers' Market! (excuse the lack of makeup on my part.)
I am a huge advocate of babywearing. ENORMOUS.

Even at almost 2 (sob) and 26 pounds and counting, I still wear Chuck all the time, and have since she was fresh out of the womb. It always calmed her to be close, and I’ve done a lot of cooking, shopping, walking, vacuuming and myriad other things with Chuck strapped to my body.

Studies have shown that babywearing reduces infant crying, promotes attachment to the parent, helps with the momma’s PPD, and helps with emotional physical and mental development of babies. Plus, it’s easier to nurse discreetly with your babe in a carrier, it leaves your hands free to do whatever else you need to do, and it’s wicked good exercise to haul another wiggly body around while you do your daily thang.

Chuck tries to figure out the buckle on the Boba

So armed with all of this information, we used a wrap-style carrier (kind of like this one) when Chuck was little, but the origami of it all got too complicated when Chuck got too big to wear on my front.

We have been “limping” along with a wrap/buckle hybrid carrier that wasn’t horribly comfortable, but did the job and Chuck was into it. It took forever and three people to get the darned thing on, but once on, Chuck would hang out in that thing for an hour + while I putzed around the house or baked or what have you.

Then I got in contact with Boba. And they sent me one of their new 3G carriers, and I had no idea how uncomfortable the other carrier was until I slipped this bad boy on.

There was no tying, no origami to figure out, not as much “gymnastics”, there was no straps cutting into my shoulders (or making my boobs bulge out…you babywearing mommas know what I mean) and no more low back pain when carrying her (which I had no idea I had until I didn’t have it anymore).

The 3G is a soft-structured carrier, and has a weight limit up to 45 pounds! (I hope that Chuck is out of this thing by kindergarten, for serious) It’s got a couple of different pockets in it (and we all know how much pockets come in handy when you’re a busy mom), a nice rain hood (or nursing cover) and my favorite part is the stirrup footstraps, which not only help support Chuck’s legs in a froggy position (which helps with proper alignment of the pelvis) but keeps her from kicking the bejeezus out of my legs.

You can even use it with your tiny tiny people (7lbs minimum) without an insert (like some of the other carriers require). It’s a taller carrier and has some handy dandy elastic ties on all of the straps, so once your kiddo is in and everything is settled accordingly, you can roll those suckers up and tuck them away.

Seriously, I bring this thing everywhere. To Boy Wonder’s soccer games, the farmers’ market, church, the park, the store, a PTA meeting….the list is endless, and I’ve only had it for 2 weeks.

Sound enticing? Well, you’re in luck. Boba Inc. is hosting a pretty rockin giveaway to celebrate the launch of the new Boba Carrier 3G and their new brand image! Enter to win a $500 travel voucher and a Boba Carrier 3G.

In the interest of full disclosure (and to keep the FDA or the ASP or the TSA or whomever runs the “policing the blogs” part of our country), I did get a Boba 3G carrier for review. All of my opinions are true and mine. I was not compensated monetarily for this review/giveaway.
