The fact is there are a lot of carriers out there. Many will do the above, but not all are easy to use and not all are good for baby OR mom (dad/caregiver).
Here is my Boba Review
Boba has some specific benefits. I like that me, being short and stout, can wear it and we can easily adjust it within seconds for my husband who is tall and lean to wear it.
Boba has a higher shell than other soft structured carriers – this is great because my husband likes to take our 2 year old out hiking and he (as in the 2 year old) likes to walk up and then sleep on the way down. It also works nicely for our 4.5 year old as well.
I’m working on learning the foot straps, but I’ve seen them in use and it makes sense. You can see in the photo here that my daughter isn’t in a full sitting position, so for a long day out, this would be beneficial. I know that since my daughter wasn’t walking until 14 months, we had some time when this would have been especially nice to have!
From Boba Family website:
Even my husband, who at first didn’t see a difference, LOVED this carrier. He indicated it was much easier to hike with our two year old on his back, especially the support that the higher shell offered when our son fell asleep.
