"We went for a picnic to Theodore Roosevelt National Park in Medora, ND for mothers day. We hiked around and saw buffalo, elk, prairie dogs, and natural caves.
Our little man slept in his boba baby wrap a majority of the time. It was a very nice day!" • Jeni Devonn Jessop"My first real attempt at babywearing was on the Jesus Boat at the the Sea of Galilee in Israel. My son was 14 days old. Now looking back, I can hardly believe I was out and about so soon! I had a natural birth, was feeling great, and had three out of four grandparents visiting from abroad. Of course they wanted to site-see a little, so off we went on an adventure--with a new born. Babywearing became a refuge that day. As the boat gently rocked with the waves, I sat with my tiny son snuggled next to my chest and had a real sense that he was mine! It was the first time that no one asked to remove him from my arms. Loving grandparents who would soon be flying home over contents and oceans, had an honest desire to bond with him, but my heart had been aching to hold him close. I was delightfully surprised to discover that my wrap was a natural deterrent from the game of "pass the baby. Together, we sat on that boat in complete peace. No wonder, now as a three year old, that my son's favorite bible story is about Jesus calming the storm on the Galilee. We lived in that calmness, and babymooned, for the first time, while babywearing on the Jesus Boat." • Callie Mitchell "While due to high water in the spring, this area is currently closed (but will open as the waters recede in the coming weeks) but is one of my favorite local day trips in Yellowstone National Parks. The Boiling River is an area where hot water from a local spring feeds into the Gardner River and creates a great place for safe soaking. It's a popular spot in the summer, so we actually prefer to frequent it in the winter when the crowds subside, though did take friends there numerous times this past summer. This is one adventure where the Boba Air excels as far as ease of getting kids safely to the actual spring (about a half mile walk) and then into the comfortable water. I can wear my kids comfortably on the trail and then put the Boba back on after I have stripped down outer layers and am ready to swim. While not designed for water, the BobaAir keeps my toddler next to me and my hands free to steady myself over the rocky river bottom until we get to a good sitting spot. Even better? It dries quickly to allow me to wear my son on the trail back home too." • Amelia Mayer, Boba Brand Ambassador, and the mama behind the blog, Tales of a Mountain Mama.
