I know I'm only a bit pregnant right now, but I know that I'm going to babywear once baby is here
Originally I decided that I want a babyhawk mei tai, but I've just seen on the internet a Boba Carrier...Could anyone give me any reviews on either to help me decide which one to eventually invest in??
I'm a relatively new mum and just started baby wearing. I went to a carrier library up north with a lovely lady who had loads of carriers including the boba and baby hawk. I tried on the boba and it didn't suit me at all, just didn't sit right. I tried a beco butterfly which I liked so I borrowed that. The lady persuaded me to borrow a mai tai ( a baby hawk) which I wasn't sure about as I didn't think I would get the hang of it.
After a week of using both I love the baby hawk so much that I've ordered one. I also liked the beco but it didn't suit the oh.
I think you should try and find a sling meet or a shop to try some as you might not like them. However, I think the baby hawk would suit most people as it's so adjustable.
I would definitely try out a few different carrier types and see what you like. I had a babyhawk but it got too hard on my back once LO was 20+lbs - so it didn't suit me right. But other women love them. My friend also has the boba carrier and adores it. With my first, we went with a SSC because it was very adjustable for OH and myself. With this LO I have used wraps exclusively and have a variety of babywearing gear now
I have the Boba and i love it have used it with my toddler (O/h still carries him in it and he's 28lb) and i'l use it with the new one once he is a few months old (they have just released the newer version which is suitable for newborns though!)
I have a Babyhawk mei tai and love it. However I am going to be ordering a Boba next week as well (going to hire it to try for 2 weeks), because sometimes I just need something I can pop on quickly and easily and without straps dragging on the ground when I've just got out of the car lol. Also because I suspect DH would prefer something simpler.
