I love wearing Penny, and to be honest, sometimes it’s the only way I’m able to get things done! Either she’s fussy and just wants to be held, or I want to keep her from getting into trouble while I try to do laundry or clean. Babywearing helps me in so many ways, and it also benefits Penny! I’ve tried a few different styles of baby carriers so far (it’s addicting!) and one of my favorites is the Boba 3g. Here are some of the features I love about this soft structured carrier (SSC).

–It’s super easy to use. Once you adjust it to your personal settings, you just clip two buckles (one at the waist and one at the shoulders) and it is secure. My dad has used the Boba 3g Carrier, and you just let out the straps (or take them in) and it’s good to go for another person.
–The comfort is amazing. My mother was skeptical about the Boba Carrier hurting her back. She tried it and loved it! I have worn Penny for hours at a parade and had no discomfort at all. The straps are padded so they are very comfortable. The baby’s weight seems to be evenly distributed so you don’t feel any pressure points.
–You can use it for newborns with no separate insert. Other SSC carriers you have to purchase a “newborn insert” to use it for babies 7-15 pounds. With the Boba 3g, you just flip up the bottom, snap it, and it makes a little pocket to put the baby in. It’s safe, and it works. Since Penny is tiny at around 13 pounds, I’ve used this carry with her and she really likes it because she can see over the carrier.
–Purse holding strap and pockets. The Boba 3g carrier has a little snap-able purse holding strap. It is harder to carry your purse while using a baby carrier sometimes and having the purse holding strap is not only great for convenience, it’s wonderful for safety as well. Since it snaps, it would be harder for someone to steal your purse. The Boba also has nice little zipping pockets that you can put keys or other small items in if you need storage. I think this is awesome! I like to take Penny for walks around the neighborhood, and it’s nice to be able to store my keys in the carrier versus having to carry them in my hand.
–It’s beautiful and 100% cotton. I chose the “Soho” print and love it. I really like that it is eye-catching, and when I go out in public I know it turns heads. The all-cotton fabric is so nice because it is breathable. I haven’t felt really hot while wearing Penny because of it. We have been baby wearing all summer, despite the 100 degree heat!
–The hood is so convenient. The Boba 3g comes with a hood that goes into a small pocket at the top of the carrier. I have used the hood to protect Penny from the sun, and also when she naps. If I forget a hat or sunglasses (or she just doesn’t want to leave them on!) I don’t worry because I can just flip the hood up. No big deal!
–The high back and foot straps. The carrier is nice and high, which makes it secure for small babies as well as larger toddlers. With the Boba 3g Carrier, you can use it from newborn to toddler without having to buy a new carrier. I think this is a great investment.
