Boba Air Review

I received the Boba Air last month to review. This is my second time reviewing a product from Boba. I love the company and their whole line or baby carriers. 

Before I get into the review I wanted to share a story about how awesome the company is. Back in December of 2011, I had a chance to review the Boba Carrier 3G. See HERE. A little while after I posted my review, I noticed one of the snaps was missing. Because it was missing, I couldn't snap both sides of the sleeping hood up to the straps at my shoulders. I called Boba and explained that it was missing. They apologized and sent me a new one right away, no questions asked. I did send back the old one. Their customer service rocks!!
One of the main reasons I was so interested in the Boba Air was because of how COMPACT it is! I own the original Boba Carrier and have used it countless times! Because the Boba 3G is made with thicker material then the Boba Air, it's obviously going to be bulkier. I couldn't really stash it in my diaper bag while I was out and about. I had to keep it stored in the back of my car. 
So when I opened up my new Boba Air and saw how small and compact it was, I was super excited! Not only is it compact but it folds up into itself, making storage quick and easy! Check out this video!


The Boba Air can be used as a front or back carry with children 15-45 lbs. It's made of 100% Nylon and is easy to clean and super durable. The fabric is a very lightweight and more breathable. It includes a sleeping hood and a large pocket to store you hood in when not in use. The hood can be used to protect your little one from sun or rain, or to provide a cover when they are taking a nap. 
Here are a few other features:
  • Comfortably fits heights 5'0" – 6'3"
  • Waistband range: 27" – 55"
  • Elastic bands neatly roll up straps
  • Easily adjustable chest strap
  • Uniquely designed to "hug" your child
  • Body of carrier rises 16"
  • High quality military grade buckles
Because I've had a carrier since my son was born, he's totally used to being carried around in them. He loves them and usually falls asleep on my back. I took him grocery shopping with my new Boba Air and we both loved it. Even though the fabric is a lot thinner, my son feels very secure in it. They are made extremely well. They are very sturdy and take into account the fact that Moms are not made equally. It doesn't matter what size you are, the Boba Air has adjustable straps so you can adjust accordingly. My husband is a huge Boba fan as well so when he puts it on, all he has to do is make a few adjustments and BAM!!, he can carry our little monkey around and carry on with whatever he was doing. 
And if your child is like mine, he/she probably follows you around all day wanting to be held. My little guy is my shadow. It makes cleaning the house very difficult. I only have one hand to do dishes, vacuum, makes beds, etc.. because he wants to be held all day. With him on my back (or front), I feel kind of like Super Mom because I'm a more efficient cleaner and my little guy gets to snuggle close to me all day.
 Like I said  in my other review, make sure you read ALL the instructions and guidelines that come with your carrier. Your baby is only safe if you know how to PROPERLY wear them.

  2. It sounds amazing! How about your back and shoulders - do you feel alot of pressure and strain on them? I have the safe n sound baby carrier atm but it really hurts my back. I'm thinking of getting a Boba instead. Cheers :)
