I know we are in Boulder so for many of us baby wearing is an integral part of our lives. It has not always been like that and it certainly is not like that in other parts of the country. Of course as soon as you cross the border [especially South of the border] you find baby wearing is simply a part of life. Baby wearing is not simply a fad. There are amazing benefits to baby wearing for both parent and child. Don’t worry, Boba G3 give away details are below.
- Baby wearing benefits for the baby: babies cry less, get better sleep, learn more, are happier.
- Baby wearing benefits for the parents: enhanced communication between parent and baby, is convenient, encourages weight bearing exercise, allows you to move around on all different terrain
I want to introduce Boba. They are a local Boulder, mom-owned, company that has been helping parents connect to their babies and young children. I knew they were a great company when I met their well traveled founder in a mutual friend’s studio, where she was creating pottery on a wheel when she was approximately 10 months pregnant. She told us stories of traveling with her young children and clearly baby wearing was a passion! The Boba Family lives the life and promote baby wearing for all the great benefits it bring to families. You can find more detail on the benefits of baby wearing from Boba’s founder here.
In April, Boba is offering a FREE Healthy Baby Wearing Class through the YMCA. If you are interested you can learn more and sign up here.

I love baby wearing, especially in a boba! I find hiking and walking around (especially in crowds) to be much easier and better for baby when baby wearing. Stolling is fun, but my babies were often more peaceful when worn. Wearing a baby or a toddler is also especially helpful at the airport! I love that the new boba is safe for newborns!
Thanks, Dillon! I hadn’t thought about the airport issue. Of course, wearing your baby makes moving through the airport easier. Great travel tip! -Amanda
I love baby wearing! It’s the only way I can get some snuggles from my sweet 3 mo old and keep up with my 2 yr old at the same time.
Agreed, babywearing helps you to be hands free for other duties, like taking care of an older sibling. Thanks for your comment, Emily!
I used a sling with my first and thought it was great. With my second, I bought an ergo. It has opened my eyes to baby wearing and how comfortable and wonderful it can be!
Thanks for commenting, Katie!
