Boba Family: Boba Carrier 3G Review and Giveaway

*Disclaimer: I did receive a Boba Family Baby Carrier for purposes of this review. I did not receive any monetary compensation. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. My loyalty is to my readers and always will be.
I have long understood the importance of baby wearing. With my first son, I did it purely for bonding, and that on it's own was an amazing experience. When my second son came along, he had collic. It was suggested to me by his pediatrician that wearing him in a baby carrier or wrap would help to soothe him and keep him calm. Since I would have tried anything, I started the journey of baby wearing and I was amazing. I would wear him around the house and suddenly I was able to get dishes, laundry, and vacuuming done. When I started wearing him out in public, I was able to take my time shopping and get more things accomplished. He was relaxed and in what I called "his happy place"
I recently received the Boba Carrier 3G and think it's amazing.
It was really hard for me to choose a color because Boba Family had so many great color choices. But I ultimately went with the Glacier. I like the fact that it was gender neutral and that my husband would enjoy the color as well. He doesn't particularly like to wear patterns.

The Boba 3G Carrier fit like a dream. It was so easy to strap on and get my 11 month old into. He enjoyed sitting so close and loved the effortless piggy back ride. I was extremely comfortable using the Boba 3G to carry Declan around. I have tried other carriers in the past that felt awkward and lacked support. This was a pleasure to use for both me and my little man. The padded straps fit my shoulders perfectly and didn't dig into my skin.
I found that adjusting the straps was extremely easy, which was a huge bonus considering my husband and I will switch back and forth. The rear clip is military grade, so I know it was going to keep my little man safe. This will fit moms and dads from 5'0 to 6'3. I'm 5'1 and it fits great.
The Boba 3G is all about accommodating a toddler but I should mention that it will also accommodate a newborn without an insert. There is a detachable hood, which I haven't used yet but it will come in handy when I'm nursing and on the go.
The carrier does have 3 pockets but they are a bit small. But you can fit a debit or credit card and a small set of keys. The pockets aren't perfect but they work. It also comes with detachable foot straps but my son's legs don't fit into them just yet.
Overall, I have loved the Boba Carrier 3G and recommend it to other parents looking for a soft carrier for their baby or toddler.
I have to apologize for the lack of personal photos, but I am currently 6 months pregnant. I will be doing a future post with new baby on baby wearing.
