Re: Ergo vs. Boba

I'd go with the Boba, so much better IMO. I'm 5'2'' and about 110 when not pregnant and it fits me just fine, it's very adjustable.

I'm 5'2" and much prefer the Boba. The purse straps on the 3G are priceless! Seriously - you don't realize how much you need those until you have them.

My dd is a leaner, and when she was 9m old I borrowed an Ergo and she drove me nuts leaning backward. She can't do that in the Boba as much.

I am not a huge SSC fan, but I like them for easy back carries in public and the Boba is my favorite of all I have tried, easily.

Re: Ergo vs. Boba

I have a Boba 3G and I'm petite (5'2" and 110lbs), and I LOVE it! I think you will too! It will be great if you plan on having another baby too, since it doesn't need a newborn insert like the Ergo. I've been using it since my baby was around 10lbs.

Re: Ergo vs. Boba

My boba arrived today!!! We went for a very short walk since it's a little chilly. It is SO comfy! I'm amazed with how comfy it is. This is really my first *nice* carrier. I think im in love!

Re: Ergo vs. Boba

I tried both and preferred my Boba as the back is taller. My lo is a leaner and I need the extra coverage. Good luck!

I'm 5'3, and I love my boba! Ergo is too short for my 7mo.

Re: Ergo vs. Boba

I hope you like it!

I don't know anything about the Boba but I love our Ergo. My son will be one next week and is right at 30 pounds and 32 inches tall. He loves the Ergo and gets so excited when he sees it. I can still carry him comfortably in it, although, there is a time limt on what my back can handle. I could probably wear him longer if I put him on my back but I love having him cuddled up to me in the front.

Re: Ergo vs. Boba

This is great--I currently have an Ergo and don't use it enough. I saw another website recommend the Boba. I love that link to the baby wearer. I may ahve to reconsider my choice.
