It’s no secret we’re big fans of babywearing and the latest carrier we’re loving is the Boba Baby Carrier ($120 – $125).

Structured, yet soft, it’s available in several gorgeous patterns, as well as solid colors too.

It’s also suitable for babies and kids from newborn up to 45 lbs.

Things We Like:

Having tested a number of carriers before, one of the features we noticed right away is that it comes with an optional foot rest for baby.

As children get older, their legs tend to dangle more so this gives their mini limbs a much-needed break and also puts them into an ideal flexed position which helps align their spine properly.

With just a few simple adjustments, you can also carry a newborn without having to purchase any extra inserts. It’s always nice to be able to invest in one carrier and have it work with your child right from the start.

Two other features that make a mom’s life easier are the shoulder strap holders that hold purses and diaper bags in place so they aren’t slipping off your shoulders (brilliant!) and the extra pockets — for keys, cash, etc. — located all over the carrier.

Things We Didn’t Like:

There’s not much to dislike. Everything is where it ought to be and then some! At first, all the buckles and straps may seem overwhelming to a babywearing newbie, but a few minutes of practice and set-up (before trying to put a baby in!) is all you’ll need.

Moms & Babies Rating:

We love it! Not only is a great baby to toddler investment, but it’s everything you’d ever want in a baby carrier.
