Boba was introduced to me by a good friend and I immediately fell in love with the designs. They are super cool and I can still look fashionable while carrying my daughter! I was considering between the baby wraps and the carrier but since there's a high chance that Zen too wanted to be carried (he's almost 5 years old and weighs about 17 kg), I thought the carrier would be more suitable. :-) For those who have infants or toddlers, you may want to consider the baby wraps for it 's made of cotton and spandex, making the child snug comfortably close to you and at the same time, you will feel that its weight is distributed evenly.
A few years ago, after suffering from some major back pain as a result from carrying Zen (too much?) when he was a baby, I made a decision there and then not to carry him too much, or anything heavy for too long, for that matter. I was then advised to get a baby carrier as they are able to distribute baby's weight while being carried. And so I started looking for some baby carriers. My friend loan me one to try it out. It was those backpack type and Zen didn't quite like it. In the end, my MIL made (yes, she sew it herself) me those sarong sling. While it did serve its purpose, it was solely for in-house only, if you know what I mean. :D
When I had Kay, she too was like her brother, wanting me to carry her around. And things get bad when the kids were sick. Both wanted to be carried! I was so afraid that my poor arms might end up requiring physical therapy just from all those carrying. So you see how desperately I was. And when I got this Boba carrier, it made carrying the kids so much easier and fun too. It's very light and can be adjusted to fit your body. And the outer materials were very comfortable not only to the child but also to the wearer.
