Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Easy to use and wear. A simple approach to carrying your baby that promotes physical bonding.
While you can use this wrap with infants from birth, it’s also handy for toddlers up to 35 pounds.
It can be used in one position—front-inward—and, because it’s made from 5% spandex, does a great job of helping babies feel snug and secure.
It has a unique design that makes breastfeeding readily available anytime.
We found it suitable for both newborns and babies up to about 18 months old.
The fabric can be tied and adjusted to support even the smallest of infants and keeps the baby nestled right against their parent's heartbeat for a secure and soothing hold.
The Boba is well-loved because it is huge. It’s approximately 5.5 yards or 16.5 feet of fabric.
This carrier/wrap is machine washable in cold water. You can also tumble dry the wrap on low, which is rare for any of the carrier styles we tested, as most require air drying.

What reviewers didn't like

Wearer and child can get hot and sweaty. Child can only face inward.
There are a variety of ways to tie them, but it may be frustrating for some users — especially when out and about.
One-piece wraps can get hot, so keep that in mind if you’re planning on wearing one in a warmer climate.
The Boba Baby Wrap maybe a bit long for smaller mothers and may also take time for tying it to get used to.
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.
While we like just about everything about the Boba it is harder to learn and use thanks to the wrapping process and the design that requires you to hold your baby while you perform the wrapping.
