Boba 4G Carrier Review & Giveaway

Boba gave me the opportunity to review the Boba 4G Baby Carrier for free in exchange for my honest opinion.

I am still new to the babywearing thing but I am falling in love with it! This feels a lot like my obsession with my cloth diaper stash! When I find something awesome and everyone else is not doing it; I just want to share the awesomeness with them!

There is so much to love about babywearing. Some of my top reasons I love it are: I’m able to complete task while comforting and holding my baby, no need for a bulky stroller when we are out, I’m able to keep my hands on or help my other 2 children if needed, and I just like the feel of him in his comfy baby carrier too!


The first baby carrier I bought was an inexpensive one ($25). I thought it was OK; it did it’s job but it did not feel like it was going to hold up overtime and my baby and I were not completely comfortable.  I had heard a lot of wonderful things about Boba baby carriers and had put of buying them because of the price. Now I see that the price is definitely justified because of the quality of materials and the overall design of the carrier. Also, the Boba 4G Baby Carrier can be used from 7 lbs to 45 lbs. Anything that can last that long is worth a few extra bucks!

Boba 4G Carrier is Awesome!

The quality is top notch! Your baby will be safe and this baby carrier will hold up over time! It is so easy to use and will fit parents of any size and shape.

The shoulder straps were padded well and were very easy to adjust. All the straps were easy to adjust and have good quality buckles. Even one of the straps on the side are adjustable to make it easier for breastfeeding.

The design is great. It is designed to hug your child and it has your child’s hips correct to avoid hip dysplasia. It even comes with foot straps to help support your child’s knees and hips.

I love that it can be  used for such a wide range of baby sizes! You can see when I was testing it out I had my lovely nieces to help me demonstrate! I held my 40lb niece easily on my back and it felt so comfortable! It really distributed her weight great!  Recently, I was able to walk a trail with my 3 year old son on my back. He loved it and I felt good and comfortable the entire time I was carrying him.

    I love the foot straps! I think that’s something every SSC should have!

  12. Kera Adams says:

    I like the Soho print.

  13. i have a boba and love it to put on when we run out and i want to baby wear in a store or mall, because it’s relatively compact without long straps that drag on the ground when I’m putting it on.

  14. i like the montenegro – classic and dad-friendly, too!

  15. This seems like such a great carrier! I really like that you say the shoulder straps were padded well and were very easy to adjust- this is typically not an easy feat with many carriers. I also really like that the carrier comes with foot straps that help support the child’s knees and hips- so great!

  16. Tweet and Pine Organic are my favorites. These things look so comfortable!

  17. I love that this has so many size adjustments, lasts from 7-45lbs, and comes with a hood!

  18. i have a cheap carrier from target. 7 years old. i couldnt figure it out with my oldest. i figured it out with my 3 year old when he was an infant. but he HATED it! i did too! i was scared to move. we were both uncomfy. this carrier looks sturdy and what I am looking for!

  19. I’ve heard such great things about this carrier. I love the foot straps and that it fits a wide range of little ones.

  30. I think they are all really nice, do not know which one I would choose for my grandson yet.

  31. Aimee Richardson says:

    I love that it properly holds the child. I also love that it holds a wide range of children. From the very small to the older toddler.

  32. Thank you for this wonderful review. I love how snug the babies look in the carrier. That is EXACTLY what I am looking for and what I have not found any where else.

  33. I like that its designed to hug your child and it has your child’s hips correct to avoid hip dysplasia. My daughter-in-law would really love this she has trouble with carriers due to her hips. I would so love to give her this she would be so excited.. Thanks for the amazing design and this great offer..

    I REALLY want one of these!! I love the adorable kangaroo design on the one in this review and I love how adjustable and easy to use this carrier seems to be!

  45. I love how it looks so secure to hold a baby in. I received a baby carrier at my baby shower and I’m so afraid to use it. I keep thinking he’s going to fall right out!

  46. Emely Karnes says:

    I love the tweet color. I love the foot straps for my older baby and for when my infant baby gets older so that her legs don’t dangle. I hope I can win one to use with my baby. Also then my hubby can babywear my lo.

  47. I like the detachable hood option, multiple pockets and the fit for parents. I’m 5 feet.

  48. I like the Kangaroo Style!

  49. Thanks for a great review! It’s the little details that make Boba carriers seem like the best to buy… the hood, the foot straps, the fact that you can do a back carry. I’d love have one when my next baby arrives because I know I’ll need all the help I can get wrangling my toddler!

  50. Denise Osborn says:

    I am new to the whole baby wearing thing. This Boba Baby Carrier looks to be really great and safe.

  59. Becki Witherow says:

    I love the cute prints and footstraps

  60. Joanna R. says:

    I like that it will work for children from 7-45 pounds! Awesome!

  61. Ioana Lupu says:

    I also plan on babywearing and with all the options for carriers out there it gets difficult to pick one. Thanks for an honest, great review!

  62. I love the Boba 4 G in the Soho print

  63. I like the Dusk color, but I don’t understand the ‘style’ part. Classic, perhaps?

  64. Great review! I adored my Beco carrier but would have really loved to have the foot stirrups for when my son got older. I’d love to try the Boba 4G!

  69. This looks great! Just what I am needing for an older baby. 🙂

  70. If I happen to win, I hope it would be good for hiking this spring. Right now I have a Boba wrap, but it will not work for hiking this spring with my 1 year old. So I need a soft structured carrier.

  71. Renee Smith says:

    I just love this carrier! I think the Tweet pattern is just adorable.

    I would love to have the Soho design! they are awsome and so cute!

  76. chelsea cardwell-walter says:

    love the pine organic … also love that in the reviews it can hold a toddler up to 40 pounds because I have a six week old and a two year old, so this would come in so handy with both my kids. also did not know about know a cheap carrier doesn’t stretch out the thighs which can lead to hip dysplasia! thanks for this wonderful opportunity!

  77. I love the soho and the cobalt!

  78. Gale McCarron says:

    Love the fact that the construction is superior, and holds up to 45lbs. Looks nice and secure for baby while giving Mom the opportunity to get her chores done. Thanks for review!

  79. I adore the Kangaroo print! I’d love to have a Boba 4G since you can use it without an infant insert like the other carrier we have but can’t use yet because we don’t have the insert.

  80. One Southern Girl says:

    I’d really like to try the 4G… I’m really excited that you don’t have to straps to use for a newborn!

  81. Betty Canterbury says:

    i would love the Kangaroo one

  83. Angelica Almaguer says:

    Thanks for the review!. I love that it properly holds the child and all the picture. I would like to win the Soho.

  84. Beaynbopp says:

    We got a hand me down from 15 years ago…I didn’t think that it was different from ones today but I was WAY wrong. It wasnt safe for our son’s hip and was not comfortable at ALL! I know for a fact when we have our second child we will spend the money and get one of these since our hands are already full. lol

  85. terry maigi says:

    Awesome giveaway! I think I would choose the Tweet print! So cute

  86. i like the Boba Carrier 4g in dusk, It looks awesome.

  87. alena svetelska says:

    I like the Glacier

  88. I’d lvoe a 4G in Tweet

  89. I’d really like the Boba Carrier 4G in pine-organic

  90. savannah logan says:

    I like how it evenly spreads the weight so that there is less pain for the wearer.

  91. Alison Morrell says:

    The Boba 4G looks comfortable for both parent and child. Watched a couple videos on how to use it and it looks pretty easy. love the idea of being hands free so I can get things done around the house. The dusk and kangaroo print are great!

  92. Sandy Adams says:

    I have two nieces that are expecting this Spring and would love to give one of them this carrier.

  93. I like the The Pine Organic 4G Carrier

  94. My daughter will love this!!!

  95. Amy Kelsey says:

  98. Leslie Chavis says:

    The Boba 4G Baby Carrier looks and sounds great. I would love for my daughter to have this for my new and 1st grandson.

  99. Tracie Trump says:

    My fav is the Boba Carrie 4G in Pine

  100. I’d love to win one of these to give one of 2 young ladies I know that are expecting right now! I really like the “Tweet.”

  101. I would pick pine – organic

  102. Samantha Wilson says:

    I love the Soho pattern! So cute!

  103. Kerri Hughes says:

    This would be handy for my niece she has 3 kids under the age of four and always has her hands full.

  104. mysweetlifex3 says:

    I loveee Pine!

  105. Kristin neal says:

    Love the tweet pattern of the Boba 4G carrier

  106. Tara Berke Torres says:

    Up to 45 lbs, huh? I could put my 3rd grader in there! 🙂

  107. I love them had one with my other kids, now I need another one. I hope I can get this one.

  108. I love how much higher the back comes up than other carriers.

  109. I love the Boba carriers – I tried on so many different ones trying to see which ones fit better with my shorter torso and this was by far the most comfortable one, plus it’s great for ergonomics compared with others like the popular Babybjorn. Would love to win this new version for sure! 🙂

  110. Gina Hiskes says:

    These look absolutely amazing! I’d love one in SoHo print. It would be wonderful to be hands free carrying #4 so I could take care of kids 1-3. Sometimes I feel like she’s a little neglected in our hectic household, this way she could be by me all the time!

  111. Carrie Stelzer says:

    Both the Boba Carrier 4G Tweet and Kangaroo are adorable.

  112. Tweet!

  113. Hope I win!

  114. alissa farias says:

    Such cute carriers – I like the Glacier one.

  115. The patterns are so cheery and it “grows” with you as your baby grows and works with child from 7 to 45 pounds. Having your hands free for fixing a part of dinner in the morning is one of the functions I like, because as a mother of twins, there’s always something going on. And if I did something towards dinner, I felt like it was a good day.

  116. Rebekah Homutoff says:

    I have a used Boba 1G and LOVE it with my 2 and 4 year olds. I am expecting again and want to get the 4G to use with a newborn. I love my wrap and ring sling, but I am now hooked on the SSC for the ease of use. My kids tolerate it so much better and it distributes the weight on my back so much better.

  117. Amelia Jarvis says:

    I love the foot straps and the fact that the child’s weight is evenly distributed!!

  118. I love the glacier one!

  119. Crystal Espinozac-Shanahan says:

    I’m a new baby-wearer & appreciate this review & chance to win!

  120. Thank you for writing such an honest, thorough review of the Boba 4G. I love that this carrier would allow me to tackle daily tasks without having to sacrifice the bond between my son and I. I’d go with Pine – organic because of the organic aspect and its neutral colors – perfect for any gender!

  121. Michele Rodocker says:

    I would choose Soho or Tweet if I won. Thanks for the giveaway- love boba!

  122. i love the foot straps and detachable hood. i also love that it includes detachable Integrated Infant Insert.

  123. Heidi Freitas says:

    I love the Boba 4G in the Kangaroo color. Super cute!!

  124. I love my 3g and would love to try the 4g in organic pine!

  125. I really love the Kangaroo carrier!
    Thank You for the great giveaway

  127. natalie parvis says:

    I love the Kangaroo carrier

  128. I love it!!!!! I want one of the 4G’s soooo badly!!!! The Tweet pattern is super cute!

  129. I was so glad to see you say the straps were easily adjustable. That and my being only 5 foot always caused a problem where the carriers I have tried always ended up just sitting in the closet! Much better quality carrier … 🙂

  130. Stephanie F. says:

    I like the tweet!

  131. Jane Macy-Painter says:

    I like the pine because it’s organic

  132. This carrier looks like it would help me carry my nephew without back pain!

  133. Cassandra Eastamn says:

    I’d love the 4G Boba in Dusk!

  135. Crystal Well says:

    I love the Bobs 4G in pine!

  136. Love the Montenegro! Daddy can’t complain!

  137. Jessica Parent says:

    Love the detachable hoodie and that I can wear it on front or back .

  138. Great review. I would love the 4G in tweet 🙂

  139. I love the boba! I’ve been holding out on awesome sales of other kinds so save up for one of these! I really really want one!

  140. I am torn between tweet and kangaroo….they are both sugar sweet!

  141. i love this cu it can fit from big to small i have a 6month old and a 3 year old this would be awesme

  142. This would be great for chasing my 2 toddlers around the playground and carrying my NB at the same time! Love the print you chose. I have a Boba wrap, I bet the carrier is great too!

  143. I like tweet

  144. I love that you have the option of both front or back carry. I would love to try this!

  145. Can you cross the straps for the front carry?

  146. Amber Catron says:

    I love the Soho!!!

  147. I’d love to try the Boba! I’ve heard great things and have an ERGO carrier for my little one, but think this might last longer in terms of support for the little one as they grow taller (back support)

  148. I love that this carryer will fit me and my husband.

  149. I like the boba carrier 4G in pine organic.

  150. Nicole Harding says:

  158. Yolanda Flores says:

    Cannot wait for my daughter to have my first grandchild; this is going to help alot!

  159. Christina Strapp says:

    I have heard nothing but good things about this carrier. I would love to have one for my next baby!

  160. RICHARD HICKS says:

    This is a really well designed carrier for baby and your comfort

  161. I love that Boba carrier 4G can be used with babies as small as 7 lbs up to 45 lbs.

  162. Michael Lambert says:

    I know my wife would love one of this for our next child. I have heard her says good things about this carrier.

  163. Michael Lambert says:

    I like the carrier in pine pattern.

  164. I’d love to win the Boba Air in Black!

  165. Having a truck as my main vehicle with 2 car seats in it there is no room for a stroller and for it to travel in the back is no good if by chance there is rain and plus just the air dirt from traveling in the back. I have always wanted either a Boba or a Beco which would be much more quicker to put on than my BabyHawk which I do like but some times I hate when I’m out and it’s rainy, wet, yucky out the long straps are just begging to drag all on the nasty ground before wrapping around my baby and me.

  166. Kayla Haigler says:

    Thank you for the chance to win.

  167. Claudia Hubka says:

    There was nothing like this when I had my daughter….( in the old days )
