Boba Wrap Review and Giveaway

I'm so fortunate to have the opportunity to bring my babies to work with me! That being said, it's ESSENTIAL that I have a good baby carrier to allow me to keep my baby close while getting my work done! When I was pregnant with Emmett, I had heard so many wonderful things about the Boba Wrap (formerly called the Sleep Wrap) that I purchased one to try with Sean, my 2 year old.

Pictured is a 45 pound child, no sagging!
At 28 pounds, I was skeptical about putting him into it and not being comfortable. One of the things that makes the Boba Wrap  unique is that it's made with 5% spandex, giving it a nice stretch. When tying the Boba Wrap, you want to tie it snug against your body. I generally say "sports bra tight". I find this to be a much easier science than trying to figure out how much fabric to allow for your baby! Generally, Sean prefers to be down running around or worn in a back carry so I wasn't sure how he'd like it. I was so surprised how weightless and comfortable he felt in it! He didn't want to be held in it too long, but I think physically I could have worn him for a good long time! Several weeks later, he had a bug and wasn't feeling well. I asked him if he wanted to go in the carrier and he specifically asked for the "hug carrier"! He is right, it is just like giving a long hug to your little one!






When I was packing my hospital bag, I saw the Boba Wrap and thought, "why not?". To my surprise, I ended up wearing Emmett during our hospital stay. It was one of the only ways (other than nursing!) that I could get him to completely relax and sleep! From that point on, I've found the Boba Wrap to be one of the most essential baby items! It's perfect for wearing Emmett around the house, out and about, and at work! I love that I can put the wrap on and just take him in and out as needed without re-wrapping.

The Boba Wrap allows me to stay sane on days that my biggest boys need lots of attention (which really, is every day!) and Emmett doesn't want to be put down. I just pop him in and he comes along with me wherever I go, and I'm hands-free! When I'm at work, one guaranteed way to get Emmett to sleep is to put him in the Boba Wrap and grab a handful of web orders to pull!



Why is the Boba Wrap a great carrier for YOU? Here's why!
  • It's one-size, so it will fit you, your husband, your partner, your grandma... whoever!
  • It's versatile! Not only can it be used as a baby carrier, you can also use it as a blanket, nursing cover, burp cloth, or sunshade.
  • It is truly comfortable from birth through toddlerhood. Since you tie the carrier tight to yourself, it forms around the child, preventing them from sagging when they are heavier.
  • You can nurse on the go and very discreetly in the Boba Wrap! Here is the easiest way to do it!
The Boba Family has so generously sponsored the below giveaway of a Boba Wrap in your choice of color (excluding organic) so you can experience just how wonderful it is for yourself!

I've been looking for a baby wrap and this looks even better than what I've found elsewhere including Etsy. I like the fact that it doesn't have to be rewrapped when taking out baby or placing baby back in.
