Boba Baby Wrap Review & Giveaway {Internationally}

4:06 PM

I remember when I was growing up, my parents would use a baby carrier for the babies in the family when we would go hiking. It was an old-fashioned type of carrier with the metal frame. Dad would strap it to his back, in would go baby and off we would go as a family on a hike! Carrying babies this way would totally eliminate the need for a stroller (which would not survive a hike through the woods) and always seemed to put the baby to sleep! When I was putting my baby registry together for my first baby, I knew I wanted a baby carrier. I registered for one that I thought I would love...and got it. I was sooo excited! The first time I used it, I was very disappointed. It was very difficult to put on and once it was on, it was terribly uncomfortable. "How can someone wear this thing??", I pondered to myself as I stuffed it back in the box. It hasn't been used since. Fast-forward to my third baby's birth. My doula came to visit me about a week after Isaac was born. She brought along her Boba Baby Wrap to show me, along with some other things that she thought would be of use to me. I have NEVER been a "babywearing" mom so using a wrap was a totally new concept to me. She showed me how to put it on and we put Isaac inside. I was AMAZED. It felt great and Isaac LOVED it!!
Boba is a company that makes baby wraps and carriers for parents who are interested in bonding and being close to their babies. I for one am one of those parents. :) Here is a bit more about this company, which was founded by Elizabeth Antunovic...

Boba designs thoughtfully crafted products for active parents who want the time and freedom to create a real and caring bond with their child, while living life to the fullest. We care deeply about what we do, and our customers’ happiness is our highest motivation as a company.We started Boba because we care about children, and we extend that caring to our customers every day through unrivaled quality products and outstanding customer support. Our products are designed, considering the needs of the child, mother, and father.

Like I said before, I have never been a babywearing mom. It isn't that I didn't want to, it is just that I had never considered it. When my babies were fed, diapered and happy, they were put in a bouncer or swing so I could get my work done. When they would cry, I would stop what I was doing and go hold them for a while. I really didn't think there was any other way to live life with a baby...until now.
For this review, I was sent an Boba Organic Khaki  Baby Wrap. When it arrived, I was soo excited! I had been using my doula's and was really happy to have my own. I was also thrilled to have an organic one as well.
The Boba Baby Wrap is made of 95% cotton and 5% spandex, so it is slightly stretchy. This makes the wrap suitable for any body shape and any baby size. When totally unfolded, this wrap is super long and looks like a long and narrow piece of material.
What I love about this baby wrap is that it comes with a really nice booklet that explains how to wrap and tie it, as well as pictures showing different wraps that you can do. If you have a newborn, there is a specific way to wrap it. If you have an older baby, you wrap it differently. I have a newborn, so I followed the directions for that specific style.
Boba encourages freedom, and that means that with this particular product, you can do just about all your daily activities with baby on board! I was really excited about this because now I have three children...and a double stroller. I wasn't sure how we would be able to go on walks as a family (which we do almost daily in the summer time) and enjoy visits to the park. Well, the other day we went on a walk...and I wore Isaac in my Boba Baby Wrap!
I love how easy it is to get the baby wrap on...I can wrap it myself and put the baby in without any assistance, which is great. I am a stay at home mom so most of the time, I have no one at home to help if I needed it. The other thing that I am so thrilled about with this wrap is that the material breathes really nicely. The days that I have worn it outside, it hasn't made me sweat at all or made me feel hot and sticky.
As soon as Isaac is tucked inside, he falls right asleep. I was so amazed at how quickly he relaxed and quieted down. One time right before I put him in, he was screaming! As soon as I snuggled him in, he was sleeping. Incredible!!

Boba Baby Wraps retail for $48, unless you go organic and those Wraps retail for $65. Whichever one you choose, you will love! It may seem like a steep price for a piece of material, but it really is an investment that will keep you and your babies happy for years to come. It is worth every penny!!!

So, in my opinion...Boba is a fantastic company! I am totally addicted and in love with my Baby Wrap and have been telling everyone about it. :) I get asked about it whenever I wear it out and about, and love showing people how easy it is to use. I would definitely recommend this company to any and all parents who  are looking for a bit more freedom while bonding with their newborn and/or infant.
