Babywearing is what we are about.
And by babywearing – you know, using a baby wrap or soft baby carrier to carry your child – we mean the freedom and togetherness that comes from keeping your baby on your body while navigating life. While much of the Boba website is dedicated to how to wear your baby, we’ll also post from time to time some babywearing blogs to highlight customer how-to and demo notes, spread the word about fun babywearing events, and celebrate how wearing your baby makes a difference in your life and your child’s.
Have a helpful babywearing link or topic you’d like us to explore on the blog? Message Heather via email or twitter – she’d love to take a look!
