Boba began when two parents decided to leave their hometown of Bolder, CO, and travel the world with their two kids in tow. They took off with only a few personal belongings, a few thousand dollars, two backpacks, two kids, and a dream. They wanted to live their lives and experience freedom together. With an amazing idea and determination, the first Boba Wrap was sold out of rural Slovenia and before long the company had taken off. Starting the business was no easy task as the adventurous couple behind Boba traveled the world, but they made it happen and before long Boba turned into a well known and extremely popular brand of baby carriers.

Since my first opportunity working with Boba back in March of 2013, I instantly fell in love with the company, their message, and their products. I reviewed a Boba 3G carrier and all it took was one carry for me to instantly be hooked and ready to "hang up the towel" with the other carrier that I had. When I was offered to be apart of Boba's Ambassador team, I couldn't wait to accept.
When the announcement of the Boba 4G was released several months back, I was excited and knew that I would have loved to reviewed it, but by then my little guy was already two years old and was at the point that he was more interested in walking than being carried. When I learned that I was pregnant again, I began making a list of things that I needed for my newest little one and the Boba 4G was at the top of that list. One of the biggest upgrades that the Boba 4G received was the inclusion of a removable infant insert to make wearing your newborn/infant in a carrier possible! I was over the moon when Boba wanted to partner up for the Birthday Bash and couldn't wait to receive the new Boba 4G to test out!
I have had my eye on the Boba 4G in "Tweet" for quite some time so it was really no question of which print I was going to choose for the review - I just adore the bright colors and the cute birds on Tweet and love that it's completely gender neutral!
One of my favorite features of the Boba 4G is that it has hidden pockets! These pockets are located on the waistband of the carrier and are both perfect for stashing a few "mommy items" in while you're on the go with baby. The zipped pocket is a perfect fit for chapstick, cash, a credit card or two, and even a small pack of gum! The non zippered pocket is the perfect place to stash your phone, keys, or even a small coin purse!
The Boba 4G includes a hood that can be easily detached should you forgo its use, but it really is a fabulous edition to have for those who are nursing or if your little one falls asleep while you're carrying them! The hood adjusts to accommodate the height of your child and easily folds into a zippered storage compartment for a 'cleaner' look to the Boba Carrier while the hood is not in use.
One feature of the Boba Carrier that I absolutely adore is something that is far more beneficial for those carrying older babies or toddlers; the Stirrups. I cannot stress to you how great it is to have a place for your little ones feet to sit comfortably while they are being carried, especially if they are on your back. Little Mister always loved to put his feet int he stirrups and I loved that his feet weren't loose and swinging against me as we walked.
To secure the Boba Carrier to your body, there are two main buckles to adjust to insure a secure and comfortable fit. The upperback/shoulder strap is not only adjustable in width, but the height can also be adjusted by easily sliding the buckle up or down your back. Having the ability to slide the buckle makes it very easy to buckle yourself and tighten the straps yourself!
The second security buckle is the one that goes around your waist! It is significantly larger than the shoulder strap buckle and is an extremely thick and sturdy buckle. Both sides are adjustable so you can easily give the straps a tug once you have buckled it on to confirm a tight hold around your waist!
Now lets chat about the most exciting part of the Boba 4G! The Infant Insert!! The Infant Insert is designed to accommodate little ones from 7-15 pounds based off of two different sizes you can create simply by folding it! If you choose to leave the infant insert unfolded, it accommodates babies from 10-15 pounds giving them a little extra boost to see out of the carrier. If you fold the insert together (it snaps to create a secure seat), it can be used with little ones from 7 to 10 pounds by creating a small seat for them to sit on. Once your child surpasses the need to use the infant insert, you can easily and quickly remove it by unsnapping it from the carrier itself!
Since my newest addition is still 'baking in the oven' I enlisted the help of my friends The Carver's to model the Boba 4G with their son, Baby D. Baby D is about 11 pounds and sits comfortably on the infant insert while he hangs out with mommy or daddy in his Boba 4G! Whether they're hanging out at a friends house or out at exciting places such as the beach, Baby D is comfortable and content in his Boba 4G! A big thank you to The Carver's for allowing me to borrow their photos for this review!
The Boba 4G can accommodate mommy's and daddy's between 5 feet and 6 foot 3 inches tall, and it also has an adjustable waist band width of up to 58 inches! We absolutely love our Boba 4G and I cannot wait to use it with Baby #2! Whether you're looking for a soft structured carrier, a wrap, or even accessories such as baby wearing sweatshirts or carrier teething pads, Boba has everything you would need!
