Boba Baby Carrier & FREE Stuff Sack
Hug your baby close while you go about your daily business, hands free - or head out on an all-day hike. The Boba is a soft structured baby carrier that is intended for children between 7 to 45 pounds. This 3G design is made to fit parents of all shapes and sizes without purchasing extra accessories, and it offers several innovative features not seen on other carriers.

The most innovative thing about the Boba carrier, which sets it apart from other soft structured carriers, is that there are foot straps attached to the waist belt for the child’s feet to sit in, enabling a healthy sitting position for the child. The footstraps not only give little tired legs a rest, but support the legs in a flexed abducted (froglike) position which naturally tilts the pelvis, fills out the hip sockets, and aligns the spine.
The Boba Carrier is ergonomically designed, both for the wearer and the child. High density foam* in the waist and shoulder straps ensures a comfortable, supported fit for the wearer. The wide seat base and foot straps both function to position the baby or child in a posture that is ideal for development - unlike carriers with a narrow seat base that supports only the crotch area, allowing legs to dangle.
*Although The Green Sheep emphasizes natural materials, we believe that the foam used in this product is worth the benefits it provides - allowing parents to comfortably carry their babies close to their bodies for extended periods.
Features of the 3G model: The infant conversion option allows you to use the Boba Baby Carrier with babies as small as 7lbs. No insert or accessory is needed! An instruction booklet is included to show you how to use the Boba Carrier with your newborn.
The Boba Baby Carrier is approximately 2-3" higher than other soft structured carriers. This extra height supports your little one's back and keeps your centre of gravity closer to your body.
All straps are fully adjustable, and elastic bands are provided so you can comfortably tuck the straps away once you have the carrier adjusted for you and your child.
The organic versions are made in Boulder, Colorado, USA (hence the name: Boulder Baby - Boba), with the help of local mountaineering professionals. Non-organic versions are made responsibly in China.
