|Oscar was content in the Boba Carrier for 3+ hours as I watching Aubrey play football in the snow|
Why I love it - The similarity between both carriers is that the legs hug the wearer (me). Instead of like in a Baby Bjorn where the legs dangle. However what makes me love the Boba is that (1) The Boba has a more generous waits band making it a more comfortable fit for my hips (2) the fabric feels softer and more plush (3) The height of the carrier is slightly taller, making me feel like Oscar is better supported and (4) The Boba also has little foot straps so his feet won't dangle when he is older. Like the Ergo the Boba can be turned into a back carrier, and like the Ergo it goes up to 45 pounds (See a chart on comparing the Boba to the Ergo)
Really in the end, it is the fact that the baby is close to you that I think is the best thing. Since I loved the Boba so much, the team at Boba want to give you the opportunity to have one as well so you too can experience the joys of baby wearing.
