My first impression of the boba wrap was the quality of the material. It is thick, strong and very stretchy. My first attempt at wrapping was a disaster. I had bits going everywhere and was a tangled mess. After watching a few tutorials and practicing I was confident enough to test it out. I first tested with my 17month old while my newborn bub slept. My 17month old loved it and I felt very comfortable wearing her. The next time I tried it was with my newborn. I had a bit of trouble getting her in but when I did she was very snug and comfy. I'm still yet to figure out how to discreetly breastfeed using the wrap though which was one of the main points that sang out to me when reading about them. The only other fault I have with it is it can get very hot in this lovely QLD weather we have been having. Overall I love the wrap and would recommend them.  biggrin.gif

I've been using my Boba Wrap for my newborn who now weighs approximately 4.5 kg. I found the Boba Wrap very simple to use - it took some practice, but I quickly got the hang of it. The material is quite stretchy and very sturdy. It's very comfortable for me and my baby, and comes in a great range of colours. It's wonderful for nursing too - I've used this to discreetly breastfeed while out and about. I use the Boba Wrap around the house too - great for settling my baby as it usually puts him to sleep - and allows me to do things around the house hands-free. I like that it's machine washable too - so easy to clean. I highly recommend the Boba Wrap for new mums -  this would make a great Baby Shower gift for friends.

I have fallen in love with the Boba carrier especially as it can be used until Miss P is a toddler. My husband loves that he gets to bond with our precious little girl when we go on family walks as well as the convenience in comparison to the pram. Miss P can have complete nap time in her snag carrier, we just pop the hood over her and she coos happily while she slumbers listening to mum or dads heart beat. Having three other children I have used a variety of carriers but none gave me the longevity in use till the kids were toddlers which would have come in handy when they were sick and needed constant mummy cuddles. I was a little confused at first when putting it together but once I read the book before attempting it again it was simple. I love the product and so too does Miss P.

I have been giving the Boba 3G a test run with my 7 month old and highly recommend it to anyone in the market for a carrier. The product is made from a good quality breathable fabric and the pattern is stylish and vibrant. I was worried that a carrier would put too much strain on my back, but the design of the Boba 3G distributes the weight so that it isn't uncomfortable - I can see why you can carry a child up to 20kg in it. It is very economical as it can be adjusted for use by either myself or my husband and even has pockets for storage!
