Review is done by Live, Laugh, Love Our Way.
We're going to do this review in a he said, she said fashion. I (Amy) will give the She said version, and Nick will (obviously) be the He said. As in any good relationship. Ladies first ;)
Can I just tell you how excited I was to get a Boba baby carrier for review? I love wearing Aidan. That sounds funny doesn't it? I digress. I love having Aidan close to me. I can't get enough of this kid. I also like having my hands and arms free while shopping or walking or eating.
When we found out that we had been approved for the carrier review and giveaway, I let Nick pick out which one he wanted. The last carrier we had was purple and flowered. (Yes, I know, I have a boy, but it was a $180 dollar carrier I got at a consignment sale for $80, I overlooked the fashion of it, lol) He of course, chose the Camo one:

We got the Boba just before leaving on our first of 2 family trips. We were heading to NY to visit family. I honestly jumped up and down when it got delivered. We packed it in the car and headed for NY. A couple days into out visit, we went to do some sight seeing, so I whipped out the Boba, and put Aidan in it for the first time. He's used to being in a carrier, but I wasn't sure how he would react to the new one. No worries! He looked around, could see all around him, and could have his hands in or out, depending on what he wanted to do. I had my teething bling on, so he was pretty intent on that at the time (He popped 3 teeth that trip).
Overall, I absolutely love our carrier. I will not use another one. ... I also love the fact that we can wear him until he's 45 pounds! Yay for saving mommy (and daddy's) back! But I love the fact that when we have another baby, we don't have to worry about an insert, or anything like that, just snap a few snaps and we're good to go. It's super easy to get on and off for me. I don't need help getting a million clips together, there's not 3lock clips, it's just simple. And comfortable. ...I give this carrier my mama seal of approval.
Overall I was impressed with the Boba, but I did have a few minor issues with it. I am a fan of how Aidan sits in it - it seems that it is more comfortable for him (not that other ones were uncomfortable). It feels like it wraps him up better, supporting him more without having his little legs at weird angles. It may have been the placement of how I had the straps, but it seemed like he fit to me better and more comfortable than other carriers. This is especially important right now because I have been have back issues from an accident I was in. There is no strain or discomfort on my back - it almost acts like a back brace. Aidan seemed to really be able to snuggle up to me better and more frequently instead of leaning his head back, twisting around, or trying to kick and grab everything in sight. Don't get me wrong, he still has the ability to reach out with his little paws and move his legs around, but it seems like he prefers to keep everything inside the car until the ride comes to a complete stop. I've noticed him to be more calm - never protesting to be placed in it with Daddy or Mommy. He likes the hood when it is too sunny out, also.
