Why Consider the Boba Baby Wrap?

Boba Baby Wrap at the Natural NurseryWhy consider the Boba Wrap?

  1. You want to mimic the environment that your baby felt in the womb – All infants crave pressure and containment, especially within the first year of life. The Boba Baby Wrap envelops your baby with clinging support.
  2. You want extra support for preemies or smaller babies – If you have a preterm baby or a baby under seven pounds, your baby will be too small for the Boba Carrier. If you are interested in Kangaroo Care the wrap is ideal and will perfectly adjust to the contours of the littlest bodies and provide the best support.
  3. Your baby is bigger but you still want to be close in a very unique way – If you want to be close, in a magical sort of way, the wrap is ideal and works even if your baby needs suspenders to hold up his cheeks.
  4. You want all little limbs contained – little legs and even your baby’s toes. You may get some comments that from afar you look like your still pregnant with your little one all tucked in but it’s so neat to have your baby curled up all snuggly and safe.
  5. You want the perfect fit every time – The fabric fits to your body’s curves as well. Think of a custom baby carrier built exactly to fit your body. The fabric can always be adjusted to the size of your baby. It can cover the entire back of your baby and can be spread to the back of your baby’s knees no matter if your baby is an infant or a one year old.
  6. You’re not into pressure points – Soft, durable, elastic cotton spread wide across your shoulders so that there are no points of pressure. There are no straps digging in the wrong places or in the wrong ways. This is a nice carrier to have after giving birth and you just don’t feel like buckles or webbing.
  7. You value comfort – A stretchy wrap is unparalleled in comfort. If you’re going to be wearing your baby all day, this is the carrier to use. No carrier will be as comfortable.
  8. You want the best weight distribution in a carrier – The joy of the wrap is when the lays flat across your back, the weight distribution is just about as spread out as it can get.
  9. You want to stay dry – The fabric is knit so that little loops of cotton wick moisture away from your baby’s skin, and yours as well.
  10. You love to wash everything – If you like to wash your carrier frequently and have it always smelling of fresh lavender detergent then the wrap is ideal. You don’t have to spot clean a wrap.

Product Description of Boba Wrap

The Boba Baby Wrap is a simple piece of long cloth that you tie to your body and then place your baby into. Boba Wraps are only intended to be worn with the baby oriented toward the wearer on the front of the wearer’s body. Back wearing is not recommended with the Boba Wrap or any other stretchy baby wraps. The Boba Wrap provides optimal head and neck support which is essential for when baby falls asleep. The fabric does not need to be retied and no special attachment is necessary. Baby’s head is simply slipped under the elastic cotton shoulder piece. The baby’s spine is completely supported in the “c – shaped” position, the position that infants are naturally adapted to being carried in. No matter how long or short your baby’s legs are, the fabric can be always be stretched to the back of the knees to ensure proper sitting position. The wrap is completely adjustable, it clings to wearers body and to the contours of the baby no matter what body type. When you are wearing the wrap you can adjust the baby to a lower position to nurse the baby without retying the wrap. The Boba Wrap comes in black and virtually every color and it can be worn under cardigans or coats. You can make the wrap blend in or add a splash of color to your life.

Cons of the Boba Wrap…

Learning to wear a wrap properly may have a slightly longer learning curve than other carriers. Some don’t want to be wrapped in fabric, though our largest growing market in Indonesia! Like anything that requires a little effort to learn the payback is generous. Your shoulders will thank you. The Boba Wrap may take a minute to tie. Although a minute is not that long, when your baby is upset it may seem an eternity. Male partners may not be too enthusiastic about the wrapping process, especially if you buy a hot pink wrap. Yet we do get pics of dads wearing their babies in pink playing video games. When you tie it, it may be difficult to keep off the ground when tying outside. Please don’t be swayed by the main stereotype of stretchy wraps as being suitable for only the first couple of months. If the fabric is spread to the back of the knee and the baby’s bottom is above your belly button you can carry your two year old. All of these factors are peanuts considering the comfortable ride for you and your little one in the wrap.
