I had my third baby last April and I needed a great product to wear her. I already owned and used for my two previous children a baby carrier, but it always seems uncomfortable for them and not very comfortable for me. One of my girlfriends swore by her boba wrap, so I went out and purchased this before my third baby came. My other two kids were 5 and 3 when I had my baby and always needed a hand to hold so I needed to be hands free with my baby. I loved using the boba wrap. There are so many different way that I could wear my baby depending on her size and also depending on if she was sleeping or awake. I would take walks in the summer with her and she would immediately fall asleep and I always felt that she was snuggled comfortable against me. One of the major advantages of this wrap is that I am a breastfeeding mom and this wrap allowed me to be able to nurse her hands free and she loved it. I would say the only negative is that my husband never felt comfortable being able to wrap her on his own or wearing the wrap. Which was actually was fine with me because I loved it!

Safety
I always felt that my baby was secured against my body and safe.

Baby's Comfort
There is a wide range of positions you can wrap your baby that I always felt she was comfortable.

Parents' Comfort
I never had any stress on my back wearing this wrap.

Ease of Use
At first when I got this wrap I was completely confused, but once I started using it I could put her on and into the wrap in seconds.

Design
Great comfortable fabric and easy to wash.

Durability
Has lasted me now almost a year and there is barely any wear and tear.

This particular product was great when my son was a newborn. As he got older, it was less than ideal. The fabric seems to stretch and get longer and longer. It was kind of discouraging and hard to feel like it was clean when having to wrap the baby up in public after the fabric dragged on the floor, due to stretching material, despite my best efforts to keep the fabric up. Around the house, I think this would be a great product to use. I don't recommend this wrap to a parent with older babies/toddlers. I do not recommend this product for easy use while running errands in town or travelling. I honestly wish I hadn't spent money on this carrier at all. If there was some way to keep the fabric from continually stretching after several uses, I think that would help immensely. I feel the stretching was the main problem with the product that made me dislike it. I was a little disappointed in the Moby Wrap to say the least. If the company could somehow improve this, I would be willing to try this product again.

Wouldn't use without help

By 

from USA

Comments about Boba Wrap Baby Carrier (formerly Sleepy Wrap):

If you're always going to be with someone who doesn't mind assisting you with putting it on, go for it. But if you are going to be by yourself ever, or are breastfeeding, I wouldn't waste my money on it.

Safety
Very difficult to put on properly while holding your baby, puts you at risk of accidentally dropping child while trying to get them in. If you have help it would probably be fine.

Parents' Comfort
As long as the straps are all lying flat it is pretty snug and comfortable.

Ease of Use
Very poor in my opinion. You tie it around your hips, and then pick up your baby upright and pull it up behind them. Then, while holding your baby in place with one hand, you have to try to cross the straps over your back (and have them lie flat or it won't be comfortable) and pull them around to tie at the front, all without dropping your kid. Then you continue wrapping it around your body and tie it at the back. The straps are pretty short to do this.

Durability
Very good strong durable fabric!

Not a bad wrap.

By 

from Elko, Nevada

Comments about Boba Wrap Baby Carrier (formerly Sleepy Wrap):

I got this wrap at my baby shower and was pretty excited to be receiving the Boba wrap as I have heard so much about the baby wearing and wanted to give it a chance with my last child. I love how easy this wrap is to use, it is lightweight, very comfortable, and it is easy to put the infant in it. I did notice that it only worked really well when my daughter was a newborn. After she turned about 6 months old the wrap began to not feel like it was holding the baby as well, like her weight was too much, she never fell out or anything but it felt like it was not really supporting her as well as I would like. It was great when I did wear her though, I love the feeling of having her so close and the bonding that it provided for me, it also made it very easy to breastfeed. It was so much more comfortable then the slings that they sell at the stores that have all the adjustment plastic pieces on them. My daughter always fell asleep almost instantly when I put her in it and I know she also enjoyed her time being in there.

The #1 gift for new moms!

By 

from USA

Comments about Boba Wrap Baby Carrier (formerly Sleepy Wrap):

I received this wrap as a baby shower present and it made my days as a new mom SO great. I could take walks with my newborn, or even just make myself a sandwich, while keeping my sweet baby happy and snuggled close to me. I was able to take my baby everywhere with me easily. He even came with me while I gave a presentation in graduate school! I give this gift to every new mom I know, it's the BEST.

Safety
I feel like the Boba is very safe, and I personally like having my baby strapped to me rather than in an external carseat or stroller. After he grew to about 15 pounds, my baby started sagging in the wrap and I switched to a woven wrap.

Baby's Comfort
Baby LOVED the wrap and sometimes was the only thing that would help him sleep in the first 3 months.

Parents' Comfort
I actually wore the wrap pretty much all the time during the first few weeks and months after my baby was born. It is SO MUCH better than the Bjorn--I couldn't walk 10 minutes with that carrier. The Boba wrap distributes baby's weight just right.

Ease of Use
The instructions and pictures were easy to follow. There's just one way to wrap it, so no messing with complicated wrapping styles or knots. Just crisscross and go!

Design
So many colors that everyone will find one they like. I had orange and it was a great pop of color!

Durability
It's easy to wash, just put in washer and dryer like normal clothing.

best carrier for newborn to 18 months.

By 

from Cranston, RI

Comments about Boba Wrap Baby Carrier (formerly Sleepy Wrap):

i used this wrap every single day for nearly two years. when my son was too heavy for it, i sewed a panel in the front of it for support him better. i passed one of them on to mama friend & she raves about it as well.

Parents' Comfort
unlike the standard front wearing pouch, this is super cozy for the adult wearing it.

Design
no fancy frills - great for dads to wear too!

Durability
this washed clean no matter what came into contact with it.

Wonderful carrier for newborns..

By 

from Greensboro, NC

Comments about Boba Wrap Baby Carrier (formerly Sleepy Wrap):

I loved the sleepy wrap. I wore my son in it everyday, most the day for the 1st 9 weeks of his life!! It was so comforatable molding to him and to me that I felt I was not even wearing him. I was even able to nurse him in it so I could nurse him in public without anyone having any ide I was nursing him. The pros of this carriers is: YOu can wrap it around you before you leave the house. When you get to your destination, you just slide your baby in. As I mentioned you can nurse comfortably in it without being obvious to the public you are breast feeding you baby. Your baby feels comfortable and close to you, so he or she cries less. IT is good for babies up to 18 pounds. For cons, which ther is not many, It would be a lil toasty in the summer and you can only wear your child in teh front, no back carries.. It is a great carrier and I would totally buy one for my next child..

Sleepy Wrap: Soft, Snuggly, Secure.

By 

from Phoenix, AZ

Comments about Boba Wrap Baby Carrier (formerly Sleepy Wrap):

The Sleepy Wrap was one of my first baby carriers. It is a soft, stretchy wrap that holds your baby close to your body (handsfree!) so you can do other things while snuggling and carrying your baby.

At first glance, it may be intimidating. I know it was for me. I had no idea how to wrap one piece of (long) fabric into a baby carrier. The sleepy wrap comes with great instuctions. I practiced a few times with a stuffed animal (seriuously) to get the hang of it, and then was able to do it with my newborn baby pretty easily.

I really liked that the wrap is stretchy. That makes it super comfortable and it means a perfect fit when you go to put the baby side the wrap next to your body. The downside to the stretchy wrap is that it won't support (safely) toddlers or older babies. Sure, it will still wrap, but the stretchy quality to the wrap will cause it to sag after a few minutes. Still, the Sleepy Wrap is a great buy and worth every penny.

A MUST HAVE for new parents!!!

By 

from Tacoma, WA

Comments about Boba Wrap Baby Carrier (formerly Sleepy Wrap):

My baby practically lived in his Sleepy Wrap after I got it. I just kick myself for not buying one before he was 2 months old because I hadn't heard about them. They're the best wrap out there, & after you learn how to put it on the first few times (which I admit, were a little bit of a struggle in the beginning), I could get it on & baby positioned in seconds. My baby would be screaming & upset, but as soon as he was comfortably wrapped up, he'd calm almost instantly & often fall asleep. Plus, it was super-comfortable for me. I'd put the wrap on in the mornings, pop him in & out throughout the day, & then take it off at night (wearing a nursing tank top underneath). That way I wouldn't have to put it on & take if off a million times. My only complaint was that I'd get hot sometimes on really hot days if we were out & about, but I'd think you would no matter what carrier you had. This is what I'm going to get all of my friends for their baby showers, especially if they have older kids they need both hands for, like me!

Sleepy wraps are a must!

By 

from Mission Viejo, CA

Comments about Boba Wrap Baby Carrier (formerly Sleepy Wrap):

I had one sleepy wrap last me through two kids and its by far my favorite baby item! It keeps them warm and snuggled while you have your hands free to do other things. If I ever had a hard time putting him to sleep I would just put him in this and he would be out in a few minutes. Hardly took a stroller with me when I had this since he would sleep the whole time snuggled in the wrap. It's super easy to put on, once you do it the first time it just gets faster. It was outstanding having a newborn and a toddler wrapping my little one meant I had my hands free for my toddler.
