We were always brainstorming and trying to figure out how to make our design better and ended up first adding a safety buckle so there would be no spontaneous releases. Then a light bulb went on. We just had the best idea- foot straps- to get that digging fabric off of little hamstrings, prevent bigger legs from just hanging and just give them a place to rest- just like the rungs we rest our feet on when we sit on a bar stool. After eleven different prototypes and almost one year of going back and forth, we finally got it right. Our son turned 3 by the time our final prototype was made and although he’s a big guy, he loves it.
We couldn’t compromise; we had to get it right. They had to be butter soft and we even took the extra step of making them with only certified organic cotton. To top it all off, we decided to make them right here in our home town of Boulder, CO with the help of local mountaineering professionals.
And the Boulder Baby carrier- the “BoBa” was born.
The BOBA 2G (the latest version of the carrier) can be worn both on the front and back starting from the time your child hits 15 lbs all the way up to 45 lbs! There are two types of BOBA 2G carrier, the classic collection and organic collection. BOBA carrier is working hard to be more green and decided to manufacture an organic carrier that is made with GOTS and OE100 certified 100% organic cotton and organic Texas cotton lining. Have no fear, though, because the classic collection is made with 100% natural brushed cotton so you really can't go wrong with the classic collection. Both are buttery soft and made from natural fibers. Both carriers have high density waist and shoulder strap foam so mom and dad can feel comfortable while carrying their child. Remember those foot straps that Robert mentioned above? Those are removable foot straps that help keep your child's legs and hips fully supported. You can see the foot straps in the picture on the left. This kid looks pretty comfortable, don't you think?
I was so thrilled when they contacted me and asked if I would review a BOBA 2G Carrier! They sent me the BOBA 2G Classic - Earth (it's dark brown). I love the color brown because it goes with everything and it's gender neutral so both mommy and daddy can wear it (no more excuses, men). The cotton is very soft to the touch so baby's skin will not be irritated by rubbing. The shoulder straps are not only very padded but also adjustable so just about any size person can use this carrier! Not only are the shoulder straps padded but the waist strap is as well so the heavier kids can also be carried comfortably. The BOBA carrier comes with a removable hood for when it's raining and you want to keep baby dry or if baby's sleeping or if mom wants to discreetly nurse (that's right....mom can also nurse baby in the BOBA 2G). The features just go on and on! A quick visit to their website will give you a lot more information including photos, videos, instructions and how you can buy one of these carriers for your very own!
