Older style bobas for newborns?

Bear with me here..I'm a baby wearing dummy I had a boba with DS1, but he didn't like being worn so we didn't get a lot of use out of it. I want to use it for the new baby, but I thought I remember reading when I bought it that it was intended for babies 8 months and up. Now that I'm looking at the new bobas, it says they are made for babies 7-45lbs. The style looks identical to the one I have...maybe I misunderstood when I bought it? I'm not sure what model, but again, looks just like the new ones. I bought it in 2010.

The Boba you have might be the Boba Organic 2G? They came out with a new "model" to be used for newborns up to toddlers. I have the Boba Organic 2G and that one was intended to use with older babies (15 lbs to 45 lbs.). Hope that helps.

The new one just has snaps for the waistband to be rolled under. If it were me, I would just roll my 2g under anyways and tighten.

The new style, 3G, can be used for babies at 7 lbs to 45 lbs. It can be converted into a newborn carrier with any extra stuff. There is a strap at the waist and at the head to make it smaller for a baby. The 2G can be rigged at the waist, but not really at the top. The 3G is also more comfortable in my opinion, so it may be worth it to upgrade.
