Petite mamas

What is your favorite SSC? I have an Ergo Sport but have wondered if a BBII or Boba 3G would be more comfortable. Thoughts? I'm 5'2" and 120 lbs.

I'm 5'1, and have a Beco Gemini- I find it more comfortable and less bulky than my Ergo. I also have a Freehand MT, which I like for it's own reasons, but it is the best fit for me, and very comfy, just not as quick on/off as my Gemini.

My baby is tall for his age (31" already) so I don't think the Gemini would be good for us based on his height. But thank you!!

Any other small mamas out there?

5'2" here too. But im 150 lbs, but a size 6.
My boba 2g is my favorite ssc. I have a kinderpack thats comfy as well, the fit is comparable. I actually prefer the boba though because the straps are not as wide and don't feel like they are in my neck

Great!! Thanks, mamas. The reviews for the Bobas are incredible so I think I'm going to try a 3G. I'll report back after I get it for anyone else looking ;-)

Re: Petite mamas

My SIL found the Boba way too big for her- she's 4'11" 100 lbs.

She just got an Angelpack half buckle and loves it

OP, let us know how the Boba fits you. I'm a fluffy 5'1" Mama, and the Boba wasn't comfortable one. Of course, the Ergo didn't fit right either. I ended up getting a Bamberoo and a Dream Carrier, both with petite straps.
