Anyone have a Boba 3G?

I got this carrier to use with dd to hopefully replace the Moby. I tried her in it today (she's a week old, and probably an oz or so over 7lbs.) and she seemed to like it, but I am not sure *I* like it! It seems like the shoulder straps were way too wide (and I am not little!) and even with the strap in the back tightened I kept feeling like the straps were going to fall off. Does anyone else have this carrier? If so, do you love it? Am I doing something wrong?? Trying to figure out if I should return it and get a Becco or give the Boba more of a chance.

Re: Anyone have a Boba 3G?

  • I LOVE mine! I only got it when dd was about 7 months though so I can't say how great is is for a newborn. Maybe youtube some videos to make sure you're adjusting everything right?

  • You['re not supposed to use them until they're like at least 15 lbs. That's what my 3G instructions said.

  • My instructions and the website say it can be used from 7lbs. That is one of the reasons I got it. 

     

    I checked the youtube videos out and from what I can tell I am doing it right. Maybe my little peanut needs to grow a little more so her weight pulls the straps down some.

  • I have a 2G, which is a bit different, but I love it.  I am really tiny and the straps aren't too wide on me when positioned correctly.  We didn't start using it until after 6 months though.  I know the 3Gs are marketed to be used earlier, but I'd still use a carrier like the Moby at a week old.

  • I have it and don't love it for this age, DS didn't love it either. I used the 2G with DD when she was older and LOVED it, though. I will say the place I bought mine at fits and adjusts it for you, so I haven't had any of your issues. There were two people circling and pushing and pulling straps, I couldn't keep track! DS loves the Moby so I mostly use that, but I grab the Boba if DD is being especially impatient about going outside or something like that.
