Re: I'd like to see pictures of Boba Wearers!

I got my Boba Classic in Dusk! I absolutely adore it. It is beautifully made, easy to use & adjust, and extremely comfy.

I mentioned earlier in this thread that I thought Susan wouldn't be big enough for it for a few more months despite being big for her age. Well, guess what? My 6.5 month-old Goliath totally fits. I'm so excited because I want to start using it for our weekend hikes, and I don't have to wait now! Here's pics from us trying it out today. I left the foot stirrups on but I will probably take them off before we take it hiking, since we don't need them yet. I also unsnapped the hood before trying it on, so it's not in the pics.

on the back



the buckles & straps


then we tried the front (not sure why my eyes are all googley, lol!)


She started fussing, so I lowered her down to nurse. It worked great!

Re: I'd like to see pictures of Boba Wearers!

I love that dusk color too! We LOVE our boba. I use it for both my girls (3 & 1). My 1 yr. old is small for her age (about 16 lbs) and is just barely big enough for the back carry and obviously not the foot thingys. When I have carried my 3 yr old (24 lbs), she seems very light and likes the foot rests, but after 10 min or so usually asks to take them out. I make sure her legs are at the 90 degree angle so it would be comfy, but it sometimes seems more comfortable for her to let them dangle. I don't think I have any pics though!! I'll have to get DH to take some.

Adding a couple pics of DH wearing Susan in the Boba, if someone is looking for a visual of a guy wearing it. It worked great on him and he said it felt really comfy.

Also, since I didn't mention before, Susan is around 19ish lbs (6.5 months), so compare that to mama2sweetpeas's 16lb/1 yo who just now fits--good example of why different kids fit the Boba at different ages.

I Love all of your pictures. I just ordered mine yesterday in Dusk. I love the color even more now that I've seen pictures.

I love them for our 2 1/2 year old dd (ok, she'll be 3 on wednesday but I'm still in denial). She won't ride for long in the Ergo, Beco or Meitai without complaining about her legs being uncomfortable and DH doesn't like to wrap which has been the only way I can get her enough leg support but she loves the Boba footstraps and recently did great in it for 3 1/2 hours with no whining about discomfort while we were out snowshoeing.
