We all know that everyone could use a little help around the Holidays, so for this Event I've teamed up with over 50 other bloggers to be your Santa's Little Helper... giving away prizes that anyone would want to see under the tree! You might find the perfect gift for a little one on your list - or even for yourself, so hop around to all the blogs, including the GRAND PRIZE, on the linky at the bottom of this post!
In this Hop I have one of my items from the Travelin' Toddler Gift Guide. What better gift for your tot on-the-go than a super compact carrier. Boba brings your the Boba Air which is probably the smallest, lightest carrier I have seen to date. Shauna is a stay at home mom to one beautiful little girl. She tells us about how the Boba Air fits into here babywearing repertoire.
I love to baby wear. And thankfully, my baby loves it too! We get snuggle time, while I am also getting things done. It is definitely a win win. I have used many carriers, including a ring sling, mei tai, and a wrap but the Boba 3G is definitely my favorite. So I was really excited to try the Boba Air!
Baby wearing while running errands is a must! However, there have been a few times that I used a carrier in the house and forgot to put it back in the car. Every new mother knows that getting yourself and baby out the door and to your destination, is not the easiest thing. Arriving there and realizing you forgot your baby carrier is the worst!
That’s what makes the Boba Air great! It folds into itself and becomes a small zippered pouch that can easily be stored in your diaper bag to always have on hand. It is made of 100% nylon so it is super lightweight - 0.7 pounds to be exact. No need to worry about it weighing down your diaper bag!
The Boba Air goes on just like the Boba 3G and can be worn on your front or back. I have only worn it on my front so far, as my daughter is still too small to be worn on my back.
When I first saw the Boba Air, one thing that concerned me was its lack of cushioning. I was afraid it wouldn not be very comfortable. This turned out to be a non-issue. Once I got it on and adjusted, both my little one and I were very comfortable. It does take a little adjusting of the straps, tightening or loosening them, to get the proper fit. I have used the Boba Air for 2+ hour trips to the mall with no complaints.
My baby is currently 15 lbs. As she grows, I may not be wearing the Boba Air for extended periods of time (but who knows?!). I do think it will still be a great carrier to have on hand for quick trips to the grocery store or Target. I also think it will be great in the summer because it is thin and lightweight and will help keep us both cool. Since it is nylon, it can get wet and will dry quickly making it the perfect carrier to bring to the beach or the pool.
Because of its convenience, compact size, and ease of use, I now use the Boba Air more than any other carrier. I’m so glad I have this versatile carrier in my collection! Want to buy a Boba Air? Head over to Boba's website or pick one up on Amazon. You are also able to enter to win one below!
