I Have A Boba Carrier For You! (Giveaway!)

Giveaway is now closed! I will announce the winner asap!

The winner is #22, Katy! Please contact me at savvylittlewomen@gmail.com!! Congrats!

-----------------------------------

I got a much needed nap in, and then 7 straight hours of sleep last night, mama feels SO much better :).

Remember when I told you how much I love my  Boba Baby Carrier? It seriously is the best!

I got mine this past summer and used it all the time...

Do you see the curls on that child!? I just love 'em :).

Kinley and Raya loved being carried in this carrier, they would actually bring it to me if they found it laying around the house. It is so comfy to wear, and can carry a child that weighs 15-45 pounds...

(it must have been hippie day at our house that afternoon because my hair just looks...well, hippie-ish, and really, really long.)

Anyway.

The Boba Carrier can also be used to carry your kiddos on your back, which is very dad friendly, and very easy on your back. I even carried the girls until I reached my 2nd trimester with this pregnancy.


So today Boba is going to give you one of their amazing carriers! Wonderful, huh?

To Enter:
You can enter 2 separate times if you'd like by leaving 2 separate comments. Please hop over to the Boba Carrier site and check out all their amazing carriers. Contest will end this time next week and I will choose a winner through random.org. The winner will receive a new Boba Carrier!

Good Luck!

Hmmm! My youngest is still 23 pounds and I would LOVE to try this with her!

Elizabeth said...

I would love to try this. My twins are both around 20 pounds and I think this might be nice to have!

kelsiw said...

I would love to try this.

Christina said...

I have been looking for a carrier. I tried moby and got lst in the fabric, lol. Now I have 4 kids 2 and under so I definitely need something.

Bernice Shupe said...

What a fun post for memories! My friend gave me a beautiful blue carrier similar to this years ago for my fifth son. While getting out of my wheelchair at the Detroit Zoo to look at the hippos (baby was only 3 weeks old), someone stole it! Used it only that day - gone forever! I prayed that the thief would enjoy it as much as I would have. Would love to have another to give away to one of my 3 grandchildren born last year!

Amanda said...

I just made my self a Mei Tai which is a lot like this but the Mei Tai has a lot of tying and straps hanging loose. I'd LOVE to have one of these!

Raelynn said...

I love seeing the bigger kids still getting a kick out of hanging with Mom and Dad.

Raelynn said...

I've used the Bjorn all the time with my little guy....but it is getting quite squishy and he is getting grabby. I'd love to try him on my back.

Lyndz said...

I'm pregnant with my first child a baby boy! We love hiking and all things outdoors so this would be wonderful to have!!

Jody said...

Ooh, I would love to try this! My daughter is just growing out of her baby bjorn and I've been looking for something else! This looks perfect!

Rick said...

our twins are 5 months old and a carrier would be welcomed!!

Jen K said...

My foster daughter is 27 pounds, and I've been looking for something comfortable to carry her in. She loves to be close!

Christy S. said...

This carrier looks very comfortable, and I'd love to give it a try with our twins!

Michelle said...

I love the pattern of the birdies on the one you have in the photo. I am 6 months pregnant with a little boy also and have never tried a carrier, not even with my twins. Even though I had all the intention too. This would be a great way to start. I would love to win this but being in Australia I am probably out of the competition anyway. But a great way to finally say hi and that I look forward to reading your blog everyday.

Romberg Family said...

I have been wanting to get one of these for a while now. I have the sleepy wrap and i am looking for something a little less confusing to put on. :)

Romberg Family said...

My daughter is 7 months and i hold her all the time because she is my last. So i am allowed to spoil her! :) This would just make it so much easier to do things!

LeAnna said...

Wow, I have never seen this carrier before! I have a Mai Tai, which is similar, but I'm loving the idea of padded shoulder straps and that extra buckle. Thanks for the chance to win!

LeAnna said...

Love your baby wearing pictures. I absolutely love to wear my kids. Not only is it easier on Momma, but it's such a special bonding time, too!

Beth W. said...

Oh, I just LOVE giveaways! This would be awesome for baby #2, who's on the way!

Beth W. said...

I checked out their website, and I think my favorite is the one you have - SO cute!

*Ross and Katy* said...

This would be perfect! We're actually planning a trip out this Saturday to look at baby carriers :)

*Ross and Katy* said...

I also like the looks of this one because I have RA and carrying a baby is going to be really hard on my joints. The wider shoulder straps might help us out a LOT :)

loribeth said...

My twin girls are 4 months old, and I would love to have one of these.

loribeth said...

We have a Baby Bjorn carrier, but I would love one you can use to carry on your back!

Once upon a time ... said...

I would love to have one of these for carrying my daughter!

Once upon a time ... said...

So many cute colors to choose from!

TwinsanityMom - Janet said...

I would love to win one of these! With two wild 4 year olds running around and a very active 7 month old I could certainly use it. :)

TwinsanityMom - Janet said...

Thank you so much for hosting this giveaway!

Amber said...

i'm going to enter because:
1. you never know
2. if not number 1, it would make one kickin gift to a friend

This Heavenly Life said...

What a generous giveaway! I'd love to try it with a next child!

(Your long hair was so pretty!)

Amber said...

this is the cutest carrier ever

This Heavenly Life said...

I had a ring sling carrier when Lauren was little, but...I think I ordered it too small, and it was terribly uncomfortable. This looks simple and comfy!

Sara said...

This is so adorable.....I love the pattern and would love to try it out with my little girl =)

mandbrid said...

Awesome! I've never used a carrier before but....it's never too late to start!

Sara said...

I just checked out the Boba Carrier site...it looks like a fabulous carrier and has several cute colors! Hope I win :)

Amy McSwegin said...

Oh I would LOVE ONE. Pick me!!

Amy McSwegin said...

I was just thinking the other day "I wish I had a carrier that would hold Lydia; sometimes she just wants her Momma, and I just want to get stuff done!!"

becky said...

Since I have two pregnant sisters-in law, I would love to win one of these adorable carriers for them! They would be ecstatic!

becky said...

I checked out the Boba site and all of those pics of Boba-wearing parents and their babies are precious. Clearly wearing a Boba can bring lots of happiness into your life! :)

Erica said...

My little sister would love this!

Erica said...

love your blog!

kwswimmer14 said...

Love it! Super cute and looks so comfy!
Kellynn

Baby Mama said...

I would LOVE to try this one!!

cowartclan said...

I would love to try these with my twins. My arms aren't strong enough to carry both around too long any more!

cowartclan said...

Thank you for the chance to carry around my little ones again! They love being held.

Joe and Lisa said...

I have 2 grandbabies (17 months and 2 weeks) who live in Japan. They are coming back to live in the States :) and having this carrier would make this Gramma feel alot better when it comes to traveling with 2 little ones!

Joe and Lisa said...

My best friend just found out she is going to be joining our "Gramma" club and this would be a fantastic gift for their family! Thanks for keeping a 48 year of Gramma of 4 up with the new trends! They have such wonderful fun things I wish I was having my own!!

wonderchris said...

What a neat giveaway! Love those carriers, but I LOVE those curls even more!! :)

Sarah said...

I don't have kids yet but I've started stocking up on baby gear! This would be nice to add to my collection :)

Sarah said...

this would be a nice alternate to the moby wrap carrier.

Susie B. Homemaker said...

Oh my gosh, I love the carrier you have... so CUTE!! I think I'd get that one if I won. And I love that it can be used up to 45 lbs!

Susie B. Homemaker said...

Ooh, another carrier I like is the Organic Pine. I think my hubby would like wearing that one better too, lol. This would be perfect for our youngest when we take our girls to the zoo this summer!

Mama R. said...

We're pregnant with our 2nd and would love to try one of these Boba carriers when he/she arrives!

Mama R. said...

And boy, am I loving the "tweet" pattern you showcased! Thanks for the chance.

Emily Bennett said...

The Sneaky Mommy said...

Can't believe I'm entering this with a "need" to win! :) (Could you also host a giveaway for a carseat, stroller, bumbo...just kidding!)

The Sneaky Mommy said...

Baby wearing does sound like it's going to be so much more fun this time around with all the fun new carriers to choose from!

Megan said...

Here's the second comment...look how ambitious I am! Took a peek at theie site and definitely like your Tweet pattern the best!

Furrla said...

Awesome! I would love to have this to give to my friend who is expecting her first baby in May!

Furrla said...

...or I could keep it for myself for when I have a precious little one in the next few years!

HeidiZizz said...

I have been wanting to try a Mei Tei, and this looks similar. I've got a baby girl who would look super cute & comfy in this carrier! :)

HeidiZizz said...

I have also tried a Moby with very little luck....lots of fabric & too complicated for this mama! :)

The Masek Family said...

I am in love with the carrier in willow so cute!

Blessed Mom

Sarah Halstead said...

I love my Boba. I would love to win one to give to my friend.

Sarah Halstead said...

Great giveaway!

Amanda said...

My first visit to your blog. I found you through Jenn. What a fresh and sweet little place:)

Amanda said...

Thanks for the chance.

kelly said...

What a great carrier, I have triplets so being able to carry one on my back would be great!

kelly said...

These carriers look great, similar to an ergo, I'd love to try one out!

Christina said...

I love your fun print on your carrier. The prices seem great too!

Brooke and David said...

Stumbled across your blog via my SIL! What a precious family!

mnktaylor said...

I had a look at the Boba website and they send to Australia. So if I can't be in the competition maybe I could purchase one down the track.

MandyBentley said...

Fun!! I love babywearing! :)

Umy said...

I'd love to have one when my baby is reaching her 1 year old age this year!

Kelly said...

I would love a boba carrier....actually Ive been wanting one for quite some time now but just cant seem to scrape the money together to get one. My daughter is 16 months old.

Meg said...

Oooh, this looks wonderful! We've been using a Moby wrap for my 5 week old guy, but we will need something more supportive/structured for this summer. We hike and camp a lot, so a good carrier is a must for us!

Shaina N said...

I want a Boba so badly! I wear my daughter almost daily. She's 15 months and weighs 22ish pounds. I love how the Boba comes up their backs farther, which means when my daughter fell asleep, she'd be less likely do the flop backwards thing! So cute!

Shaina N said...

I LOVE the Tweet Pattern! My second choice in the classic is probably Earth and then I love the Chestnut in the Organic! I didn't even have to go to the site, can you tell I stalk them much??

Kate said...

We're expecting our third and my youngest is 18 months. This would come in super handy!

Kate said...

I LOVE that print, so pretty and gender neutral.

Ashlee said...

I have been drooling over the Bobas for a long time now. It would be awesome to win one! Though, I'm pretty sure I will have to buy one in the spring if I don't. ;)

AllRusty said...

I have a 2.5yr old and a 13m old, and both love to be held. I have a Moby, but would love to have one of these for DH!

Mama Lisa said...

I've heard so many great things about BOBA carriers.

Mama Lisa said...

I'd love to try this carrier. My little man is 6 months old and lately all he wants to do is be in my arms.

Jenn said...

Robbie said...

I love NAP! They are an amazing family owned company with great products!

Bethany said...

I would love to win this! I have a daughter who will be 2 in a couple of weeks and I am due with my second daughter on April 21st. This would be perfect! We have a moby carrier, but sometimes all the fabric is a little too cumbersome- this carrier looks perfect!

aerobebe1421 said...

I LOVE the Tweet print!! Thanks for doing this giveaway!

Bethany said...

Thank you for the chance to win!

aerobebe1421 said...

I just started watching a 3 mos. old, in addition to my own 7 mos. old. This would be perfect for the days that she is fussy and wanting to be held at the same time my little guy wants some Mommy snuggles!

Katie said...

I have tried 5 other carriers and they didn't work. Then my Chiropractor showed me the boba and I fell in love! Really would love to have this for my 9mo dd.

Marie said...

I would love to win one!

Angela said...

I have 5 month old twin girls I would love to have one of these!!!

Angela said...

I love reading your blog!!!

CeAnne said...

I'm entering for my sister in law who will have #2 soon and is trying to figure out what to do with two little ones in the store!

Marie said...

It would be especially nice since we will be having child #2 in September and with a disabled child who uses a wheelchair a lot, at a certain point I won't be able to leave the house by myself if I don't have a way to keep a hold of the youngest while pushing the oldest!

Ashley C said...

I LOVE the Boba Classic in Tweet! Gorgeous!

CeAnne said...

2nd entry! We are using a Boba when we bring our daughter home from Bulgaria hopefully this spring! A 2nd carrier never hurt and I can gift it to someone else :)

Ashley C said...

I have my third kiddo due in May, and I'll need all the free hands I can get!

ashleycapps87 at gmail dot com

Jessica said...

My oldest is 19 pounds, and my youngest 14 pounds! This would be perfect for us! We still LOVE our Sleepy Wrap, but it's time to upgrade!

Jessica said...

What a fun new blog to discover! Thanks for having this giveaway!

Nina said...

I would love to win this! I've been looking for a structured carrier since my almost 2 year old is getting a little heavy for my wrap.

Mama Marchand said...

I love the different colors that the Boba comes in. :) Beautiful!

Amanda said...

I love the Tweet design! I would love to have one for my daughter.

Anna H. said...

I would love a Boba!

Tana A said...

I sure would like to win this for my daughter who is delivering baby #3 Jack any day now !!! I already have one for my late in life baby who is one year old and weighs 27 pounds. It is the only way I could possibly carry him!!

Anna H. said...

The Tweet pattern is my favorite!

Tana A said...

Or...I could use a second one for us since we are planning another baby for ourselves, and my hubby could carry one (the heavier one, I hope) while I carry the other, haha!

Sarah said...

pick me, pick me, pick me!!!!!!!!!!! I have 3 kids who could definitely put some wear and tear on it!

readytogo said...

I think this carrier would be perfect for my 22 month old son. And he loves to be close to me!

Emily said...

I will soon be having my 3rd baby in 4 yrs, I think this would come in handy!

Lindsey W said...

I would love to have a Boba for my new June squishy! Thanks! :-)

Kyle Citro said...

Love Love Love Boba! I would love to be able to give it as a gift to a friend of mine. This carrier saved my sanity for the first year of my daughter's life.

Francie said...

I just had a baby 2 weeks ago and would love to try out this carrier. My little guy doesn't like to be put down, so a carrier would be handy. :)

Francie said...

I like the Classic Boba in the tweet pattern.

AdaKat said...

I love the idea of a Boba. My son was born large and has never slowed down.:)

AdaKat said...

We would love a Boba to carry around our big boy.:)

beth said...

I have an almost 5 month old that is 15lbs. I do not have any sort of carrier other than her carseat. With a separated back it is hard to carry that around and not be in more pain than normal. I saw someone wearing a Boba when they came into my job and she just raved about it. I so want one now!

beth said...

My friends and cousins are about to have kids too as well as one that has a 3 week old. I would love to be able to show them a Boba and hopefully get them to get one too.

Mindy Harris said...

i have been wanting a BOBA for so. long. i feel bad making my 8-month old sit in an exercauser or johnny jump up while i'm cooking or cleaning...

Mindy Harris said...

you have 5 girls?!?! and a boy on the way? wow. you are super mom.

julia said...

I think my fave is the tweet, but since I am pregnant with a boy my hubby would probably like something a little more "manly." I also really like glacier. We have a Bjorn carrier that I really like but once my girls hit about 20 pounds they got really heavy to carry on the front. Something that can also be used on the back would be super nice!

Katherine said...

I have a one year old girl and a boy on the way... this will be a great way to keep up with them!
swimmingsilly84@aol.com

Katherine said...

I love that this carrier looks so easy to use for toddlers!
swimmingsilly84@aol.com

Diane said...

My son is 8 months old and 23# so I have been looking for something that will last awhile since he has loves being carried in the 7 sling but he's getting big for that all day.

hkim said...

I would love this for my daughter who will turn soon! She is getting too big for her current carrier.

Annika said...

I would love one of these, they look like great carriers!

Annika said...

I love their two tone color schemes! Yes, one of these would be very useful!

hkim said...

I love the tweet print and the fact that Boba has foot straps.

Nikki said...

I love that the organic boba is made in the USA.

Nikki Williams said...

Having footrests is great for legs that have to hang all day. I would love to try them out.

Diane said...

The foot rests and the way the spine and hips are aligned is great. I worried about the way my baby seems to hang by his crotch in his current carrier which is why it probably only goes upto 22#. The boba carrier looks like it would be much better for keeping his body, legs and spine comfortable and happy. The company is in Boulder and is very green which is another big plus!

Christy S. said...

Hello! I've been keeping up with your blog for a while now, but never commented. I really enjoy your blog. You do such a great job! I feel like I can relate a bit with you, as we are expecting our 6th child in May, which will bring us to 5 girls and 1 boy too! (We only have one set of girl twins though. =) The carrier would be great for carrying one of the twins while pushing the little baby in a stroller. Blessings to you as you finish out your pregnancy and look forward to kissing your sweet little boy! =)

Tina Deanette Gower said...

It's getting hard to carry DD in her sling! This would be perfect!

Yuri J said...

I love that Boba carriers are not so girly so that my husband can put our son on as well! I would love to win one!

Yuri J said...

I really enjoyed reading the testimonials on Boba's website!

Frannie said...

I have been looking for a new carrier for my soon to be one year old. This is the one that I have settled on that I want.

mj said...

I love your blog & you have beautiful pictures. I nanny 3 young children and the family does not own a carrier but i have been encouraging them to get one. I would love to use this Boba when we go outside on adventures with the 3 of them.

kelsi w said...

I love it!

Meg said...

The Glacier color is great! I take my babe to work with me often, and it would be nice to have a carrier that's a little more muted in color. I love the greens as well, but they don't go quite as well with dressy clothes!

Jen K said...

I checked out the website, and they have so many cute options! Love them!

Earth Mama Izzy said...

2nd comment - I look forward to wearing this while doing housework and grocery shopping. My LO loves to be held all the time!

Kelly said...

Ooh I would LOVE to try this! I love wearing my babies!
