I was so thrilled to get the opportunity to review this great soft structured carrier! Boba was so generous to let me test out this carrier, since I have only used an Ergo so far. I was so excited for many reasons! I had a friend who absolutely LOVES her Boba and she leads a babywearing group in her area. So of course when given the opportunity to do this review I was about beside myself with joy! So the tough part came to be choosing which amazing pattern! I ended up with their beautiful Soho design, but had a REALLY hard time not getting the cute Kangaroo one they have! And just a FYI, they have just recently put out a line for Dad's! Calling all camo lovers!!! That was truly the hardest thing about this carrier, choosing the design! I haven't yet gone over the Soft Structured Carriers on a blog post, so look forward to that post next week! For just a general idea in case any of you don't know a SSC has buckles on the straps, to take away the tying of long straps like on a mei tai.
Now as you all know I am a plus sized mama. Now when I am looking for a carrier as a plus sized mama, I am always worried about fit. With the Ergo I can't just wear it, I need an extender. This is fine, as I can add it on and make it work, but you know it stinks when you are reminded that you aren't able to just buy it and it fit. Well Boba, THANK YOU!!! You made this plus sized mama, who is also 12+ weeks pregnant with #3 feel wonderful. Not only does the Boba fit it had extra room!!! So this is monumental for a woman who after saying she'd love to review this product had a panic attack about whether it was big enough to fit me! So two thumbs up for being so versatile with your sizing. This means a mama and daddy can share the carrier no matter how much their sizes differ!
This is a close up picture of the chest strap. It's on a runner so that the whole strap VERY effortlessly goes up and down to adjust for optimum comfort! It's the little things people. This company has thought of everything to make your baby wearing experience an effortless one. It was so easy to buckle and adjust all the straps to fit me perfectly. I was just super impressed with how much more fluid everything worked than the Ergo.
