What Makes Boba Wraps Different?
So, so many things. The styles…the commitment to babywearing safety…and perhaps the biggest difference: the elasticity. Even if you’re a babywearing pro, you should keep in mind that the Boba Wrap is in a class all its own—even compared to other stretchy wraps. It may take a couple of tries to figure out how to work with all that flexibility, but whoa mama is it ever supportive and comfy once you get the hang of it.
Get All Wrapped Up in the Possibilities of the One and Only Boba Wrap.
Snug Enough to Snuggle
Tying the wrap snugly against your body ensures that your teeny sweetie is positioned higher up on your body, which is more comfortable for both of you. The shoulder pieces crossed in front of your chest should cling to you so that when you pull them out, them they bounce right back. Loose or hanging means that your wrap isn’t tied tight enough. The shoulder pieces should actually have to be pulled away from you to get your baby inside. When tied properly, it's supportive enough for bigger little ones, too—up to 45 pounds.
X Marks the Spot
Cross the Boba Wrap high on your chest for top-notch support. Take a peek at step 5 of Boba Wrap Tying 101 to see how the pieces that support your baby in front should cross each other above your sternum. The higher the x, the higher high-five you’ll get for tying that wrap like a total expert.
Don’t Do the Twist
The Boba Wrap is specially designed to provide maximum support AND be easy to adjust while you wear it. To achieve this delightful level of safe, simple babywearing, you want to avoid any twisting on the shoulder fabric pieces. Spread the fabric flat and wide over your shoulders before adjusting it to your desired tightness.
Watch Your Head
The Boba Wrap offers integrated head support, and you can get it without the hassle of re-tying. When your baby falls asleep, you can gently tuck his or her head under the Boba Wrap’s strong yet super stretchy cotton/Spandex blend fabric for fantastic neck support and—hint, hint—the occasional longer nap.
