Read along for my review of my new favorite baby carrier, the Boba Air, but also make sure you check out the bottom of the post – because I’ve teamed up with a bunch of awesome bloggers to giveaway a BobaAir Carrier, a Boba 4G and a Boba Wrap (3 separate winners!)
First off, let’s just acknowledge the purple elephant in the room…yes, thats a Star Wars: Episode 1 poster in the background of this picture. It hangs proudly in my living room. Yup, the formal living room. Nerds for life. Ok, moving on…
Some moms own several strollers, but this Tall Mom owns a closet full of carriers! I absolutely love wearing my baby (or is he a toddler now? I have no clue!) Even though he is now pushing 26 pounds, wearing him either in the front carry, or back carry, is still my ideal way of transportation.
Some carriers were for Itty Bitty when he was a newborn, and others for when we are in the pool. However, I don’t have anything that is slim for travel, or a carrier for the hot summer days that are hopefully on the horizon. Thankfully, I came across the Boba Air.Specifics about the BobaAir:
- Ultra lightweight, and great for travelers or parents on the go
- Intended for children 15-45lbs
- 100% nylon
- Front and back carry options
- Sleeping hood and pocket
- Self storing
- Comfortably fits event the tallest of moms – like myself (Fits adults heights 5’0″-6’3″)
- Nice waistband range from 27 inches to 55 inches (which is freakin’ awesome if you ask me because not everyone is a toothpick.)
- Machine washable – thank god!
The BobaAir is super lightweight, I’m talking only 0.7 pounds! The feather light nylon carrier even zips up into it’s own little pouch. Kind of like a Popple. Do you remember those little stuffed animals? I’m pretty sure my brother owned three of them.
Ok, the other purple elephant in the room – yes, that’s a viking hat on my son. My last name is Larsen, which is Danish. We’re authentic in this family. Real life Beowulf. Moving on, once again….
Because the BobaAir is light nylon, its not going to suffocate you, or your baby, during the heat and humidity. While there’s no extra cushioning or padding to trap your body heat, it doesn’t mean it is uncomfortable. The straps stay in place, and properly support your baby’s weight along your waist and back.
Nobody, that’s who.
So, having a carrier that supports my growing baby, is lightweight, and easy to use is a godsend for this Tall Mom.
Myself and a few other fantastic bloggers have teamed up with Boba to offer an amazing giveaway. Three separate winners will win either a Boba 4G Carrier, BobaAir, or a Boba Wrap.
Wicked awesome, right?

I don't need a carrier anymore, but love this one! Great hat on the little one too 😉
Haha thanks Jessica! I couldn't help myself when I saw it
Fellow NE gal here! We will be visiting Newport in July, can't wait!!
Ooo how fantastic! Are you planning on going to any of the mansions?
I've been racking my brain trying to figure out which carriers are the best ones…would you say this is your end-all, be-all, top choice?
It's my favorite one now that my little guy isn't so little – you'll want to make sure you have one specifically for your newborn 🙂
I've been using a ring sling simply because all the carriers I've seen are so bulky to lug around. A VHS box?! That's better than my sling!
And the Star Wars picture–at least it's tastefully done so those who do not know Star Wars still think you have taste! My walls have a few Dr Who posters up….
A lot of my friends love using the ring sling for that very reason. I'm not gonna lie – I like having the structure of this carrier with my little wiggly man.
Haha thanks – our whole apartment is covered in (hopefully tasteful) nerd decorations.
