    Default Boba Air

    Does anyone have one? I am interested in it and wondered how "cool" it would be for summer use? I know none of them are going to be cool, but I would like something that might a little more comfortable in 95*+ and high humidity...

    I think we are going to try this in white. It looks extremely light for hot weather.

    I love my original Boba, and I've heard good things about the Boba Air - but only for short periods. Because it has virtually no padding, it probably wouldn't feel too great if you were wearing it for hours on end. It's a great, compact option to throw into your diaper bag.

    Apparently the Ergo Sport is more breathable. I'll be using a stretchy bamboo wrap, and also looking for a breathable woven. Try something in a cotton gauze!

    I have never even heard of it! I will just keep on using my ergo... definitely without the infant insert though. I just tuck em up in there without their legs sticking out for the first couple months (fetal position) and they are fine! I guess it depends on where you are going to use the carrier. If you do a lot of day trips outdoors, it may very well be worth the investment (like several hours at the zoo or something). Hummmm, now I need to look up what this carrier actually is!!

    Oh yeah, looks nice. The one I looked at on amazon only comes in black or blue though. YOu definitely wouldn't want black! I wish I had known about that a few years back when I was looking for something I could wear in the water. When my third dd was born (and we lived in MI) I took my older two to the beach quite a bit in the summer. I was looking for a carrier that I could wade into the water with where the babies bottom (and the carrier bottom) could get wet. I never was able to find what I wanted, but I think this would have worked well.

    Another option (waterproof too!) would be a mesh ring sling. Great for the beach!

    On Boba's website, they offer it in white. Which I'm sure would be much better!


    I don't necessarily want anything to wear in the water. It just gets so hot and humid here! I have been looking at wraps and carriers for months now and I just can't decide. I don't want to get something I won't be happy with, carriers aren't exactly cheap!

    I have heard great things about the baby k'tan breeze. I think I am going to order one. I have a Maya wrap but the material feels to hot.

    For those of you with a stretchy wrap, do you find them very hot? I've never used one. My aunt wanted to buy something for the baby, so she is going to buy me a carrier of some sort. I am just trying to make up my mind!

    *lurk* Stretchy wraps have their place, but they are pretty warm and don't work for very long. There's a babywearing board on this site that isn't super active anymore but has TONS of info and opinions on each type of wrap that might help you make up your mind...
