Giveaway: Boba 4G Carrier

I was recently (okay, not too recently- three months ago to be exact) given the chance by Babyland Philippines to check out the Boba range of carriers and I’m happy to share that I liked what I saw. I’ve tried all sorts of carriers for my kids, the wraps (which I find too long and hot), the slings (which work for short periods when they’re older) and the carriers like this one: the Boba 4G Carrier which can comfortably fit your child from 7-45 pounds.


I’ll start by saying that we own an Ergo carrier and that is what we used when we travelled with Fin through Sydney when he was a little baby and again when he got older. The Ergo fit our needs at that time, but let me share why I prefer the Boba 4G for our second time with Nara.


While the Ergo required an infant insert for when Fin was very tiny, which was fine in Sydney but when we moved to Manila it becomes way too hot to use, the Boba only requires an infant insert pillow placed on your little one’s bum, which allows for more air circulation and keeps your baby more comfortable. Nara was 2 months when these photos were taken.

Here’s a video from Boba to show you what I mean:

Like the Ergo, the Boba offers excellent back support so both you and baby are comfortable for long periods. We took an hour long walk with Nara sleeping comfortably and my back not having any problems.


When your child gets older, the Boba also offers foot straps so that your toddler legs are more comfortable, something I have yet to see for the Ergo.

Here are some other specifications for the Boba 4G Carrier:

1. Integrated infant insert to support the littlest little ones
2. The perfect fit for both front and back carry
3. Removable foot straps and sleeping hood customize the ride
4. Purse strap holders—you’re welcome, moms
5. Pockets in all the right places
6. Adjustable straps that help you find the right snugness
7. Ergonomic support that never quits

With all the talk these days about hip strain and infant carriers, it’s important to do your research and choose one that you feel is right for your needs. Here is what Boba had to say about safety:

“At Boba, safety’s just our style. Every element of every carrier (down to the very last thread, buckle and lead-free dye) is checked and double-checked to ensure you can enjoy freedom together without worry. Plus, we put lots of time and thought into our carrier use guidelines and gladly comply with all U.S. and European standards for child and babywearing safety. Read our complete safety stats. Compliant with CPSIA (Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act)
Rigorous third-party (SGS) testing of all carrier components.”

For our needs, we were quite happy with the Boba 4G which will be accompanying us through our travels till Nara no longer needs it.
