Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Boba has five percent of spandex in its cotton knit. The little bit of stretch makes it easy to get the perfect fit around your child.
A huge plus for this wrap compared with more structured carriers is the option to allow baby’s legs and arms to dangle comfortably or remain fully covered.
Wearing it, you have a lot more freedom to shift your baby around, and it’s very easy to move your baby between the normal, chest-facing position, and a nursing position that allows for easy breastfeeding.
This sling stands out for its support, comfort, and ease in storing, washing and packing. We love that it accomodate a range of infant sizes, helps ease back pain and fits plus size women.
The fabric is somewhat stretchy providing a snug and secure space for little ones and few pressure points for parents.
This comfortable wrap is machine washable, and it can hold babies ranging from preemies up to 35-pound youngsters.
We found that the Boba is less likely to stretch with extended use, as it contains a soft blend of both French terry knit and spandex to keep things tight.
The Boba Baby Wrap Carrier fabric includes 5% of spandex. This gives it a 4-way stretch feel that offers real support by offering optimum flexibility and adjustability.
The Boba Wrap has a simple design, no buckles, straps or buttons. It evenly distributes baby’s weight so it’s comfortable for a long wear time. Baby can be carried facing you and in an infant hold.

What reviewers didn't like

One potential negative is that unlike other carriers and wraps, the Boba requires you to carry your child facing in.
The specific material composition of the Boba does mean that it’s only suitable for two specific types of tie: The “newborn hold” and the “love your baby hold”. Both of these positions keep your baby facing your chest, and put most of the weight on your shoulders/upper back.
The longer lenght of this sling makes it a bit more cumbersome, especially for petite women
The only real downside is the layer of fabric over clothes while holding a warm baby can get hot in warmer weather leaving both parent and little ones hot and sweaty.
Some parents struggle with the length of the wrap, the process of arranging it and wrapping it to suit different positions for the baby.
The only downfall we found is that the fabric is nice and warm during the fall, winter, and early spring, but can get quite hot in the summer.
Its length makes it unavoidable to wrap several layers that often leads to sweating
