Boba Classic Review : About 2 months ago, I received a Boba Tweet from Boba Carrier and I have been using it with my 2 year old daughter who weighs 26 lbs and trust me, this baby carrier is a great one !
You can use the Boba Classic for front and back carrying. Based on the instructions provided in the box, you should be able to install your baby/kid easily by yourself. I found it was kind of hard to do it by myself.
When placing it in front of you, of course, it’s a easier but you’ll have to set all the straps properly before you install your baby/kid in it or it might be harder to adjust them once the baby/kid is in it.
But when placing it in back, that’s another story. If your kid can hang to you, that will help but with a baby, it’s really hard to do it by yourself.
Anyway, it’s always safer to get help from someone else when possible.
The Boba Classic carrier can accommodates children 15-45 lbs / 7-20 kg. I tried it with my 2 daughters.The youngest one weighs 26 lbs and the oldest one weighs 34 lbs and they were both comfortable in the carrier and they both had enough space. At that weight, I’d say it’s easier to carry them on my back and from their point-of-view, they liked it best too.
Now, to accomodates children up to 45 lbs, you better have good straps but you’ll also need comfortable straps. The Boba carrier features high density waist and shoulder strap foam that are strong AND comfortable.
My only complaint would be that not every part of the straps are comfortable. I’m just thinking about the snaps that are made of plastic. One of the snap is located near your neck (either in front or back) and you might feel that snap since there’s no protection around it so if you are carrying your baby/kid for a long time, it might hurt.
The Boba also has an interesting feature that we don’t see often on other carrier : Removable foot straps. The foot straps are attached to the waist belt and are completely removable.
They are intended to support the legs but I found it was also a good idea to prevent your baby/kid from kicking you. :)
Boba Classic collection is made with 100% natural brushed cotton and for me, it’s a great thing. I previously owned an Evenflo Infant Carrier and it was not made of cotton and I can say the Evenflo was warmer than the Boba Classic. The 100% natural brushed cotton feels soft and seems to breath better which result in less heat kept on you and your baby/kid.
As I mentionned it above, I previously owned an Evenflo Infant Carrier so if I would have to make a choice today between both, that would be the Boba.In fact, my wife is actually pregnant and we already made the choice to get rid of the Evenflo Infant Carrier and keep using the Boba that is more comfortable, that is made of 100% natural brushed cotton (soft, less heat) and that is even better looking.
+ Foot straps (Removable)
+ 100% natural brushed cotton (soft, less heat)
+ Nice design
– Not all parts are comfortable/protected (especially the plastic snap near the neck)
