Never have I seen such an easy-to-use travel baby carrier until now. Boba, which already has an amazingly comfortable baby carrier called the Boba Carrier 3g, just recently introduced the BobaAir.
The BobaAir is more of a travel carrier to me, because the whole thing folds into it’s self, a small pouch, that fits easily into any diaper bag or hand bag.
I’m a HUGE baby wearer.
I have a three kids, the youngest only seven months old, so even though we do have a couple double strollers, I still more often then not wear my littlest one.
In the past, I have worn my girls in a Moby wrap, Belle Baby carrier, Britax carrier, Stokke carrier, and now both Boba carriers. Now, by far my favorite carriers are my Boba and the Stokke carriers. However, I am in love with the fact that I can throw the BobaAir into my bag, and have it there always.
I can not do this with any one of my other infant carriers.

My only concern with the BobaAir, is that it’s not very comfortable to use all day long. The reason I say that, is because I used it while we were in NYC for BlogHer, and because it is so lightweight, it’s also much thinner then other carriers. Even though it was perfectly fine for the first few hours, by the end of the day, not as much. I’m sure the weather didn’t help either, being so muggy.
So far, neither myself nor my husband has had any complaints with wearing her on our outings.
As you can see in the pictures, the materiel is very wrinkly. This happens from being folded up into the pouch. It doesn’t bother me, but if you’re picky about how it looks, it may be a problem for you.
Besides front wearing, you can also back wear using the BobaAir. We tested it our with Athena, but I think she is still too little, at least for me. Instead, we tried it out on our 2.5 year old.
He wasn’t a fan of back wearing for either of them. He mentioned how low they were, which could just be more of a personal preference, since we mostly front wear.
At only $65, the BobaAir is a steal, and perfect for any busy family. Feel free to check out the other great baby carriers from Boba, and connect with Boba on Facebook.
