Last week a little birdie emailed me about something exciting, brand new, and game changing! It was information on the new BobaAir. I have a video introduction and demonstration for you. Please be aware that I’m normally not in evening wear while babywearing- I had just gotten home from my 5 Year Anniversary date!
The BobaAir is simple to use, ultra lightweight and ergonomic! The perfect carrier for travelers or any parent on the go – when you’re done, just fold, zip & stash.
Here are some specs:
Front and back carry options
Sleeping hood included
Large zipper pouch for on-the-go storage
Comfortably fits heights 5’0″ – 6’3″
Waistband range: 27″ – 55″
Elastic bands neatly roll up straps
Easily adjustable chest strap
Uniquely designed to “hug” your child
Body of carrier rises 16″
High quality military grade buckles
I don’t have an official review for you but so far I very happy with the fit, possibly even more so than the Boba 3g since it will adjust to fit me tighter. I’m petite and have problems getting virtually all One Size Soft Structure Carriers as tight as I want them, however they are still fine to wear.
Several people have asked if the nylon is hot while wearing the baby. Nylon doesn’t breathe like natural fibers so this might be problematic however so far I haven’t found it to ne any hotter for ME. Everett isn’t complaining but he doesn’t talk much.
Without padding the feeling is different that the Boba 3g. I choose to cup the straps over my shoulders for better weight distribution but you don’t have to. The waist belt isn’t padded but for my shorter excursions there hasn’t been any back pain associated with this.
The coolest thing really is how compact and portable this carrier is. I will readily admit that I will choose my Boba 3g or another similar carrier for when I know I’ll be out longer than a shopping trip. Having a portable buckle carrier is nice for on the go. I usually suggest a ring sling since they fold up small but this opens up a new world for those mothers and fathers afraid of venturing out past the world of buckles in babywearing!
I am a Boba Ambassador and a BobaAir was sent to me to play with free of charge. My opinions of the carrier are my own and not imfluenced in any way.
