What is a Soft Structured Carrier?

Soft structured carriers are more conventional looking than ring slings and wraps. They have an approximately rectangular section which holds your baby securely against your body and straps to attach the carrier to you and some fasten clips. They are generally easy to use and distribute the weight of your baby evenly, much like a rucksack or backpack.

Boba 4G Baby Carrier

Boba 4G Baby Carrier Age range: newborn to toddler
Weight range: 7-45lb (3.2-20kg)
Positions: upright facing in, back

As the successor to the Boba 3G Carrier, the NEW Boba 4G (4th generation carrier) retains all your favourite features with key enhancements made to the infant support system that allows the user to fit different size infants (from 3.2kg) with even greater ease.

The insert adjusts to two different positions allowing children to grow into the carrier - when snapped, the integrated insert lets newborns (7-10 lbs) sit higher up, while the second position leaves the insert unsnapped so a slightly bigger child (11-15 lbs) rests lower in the carrier but still higher than the base. The Boba 4G Carrier also comes with numerous savvy features including a smartphone pocket, a removable sleeping hood and a breastfeeding buckle.

Compatible to most body types, the Boba 4G fits heights 5 ft ’0-6ft 3, has a waistband range of 25” to 58 inches and consistent with all Boba products, creates a nurturing and calming environment for both parents and their children.

 

 

 

features include:
    Boba 4G Baby Carrier
  • Enhanced infant support allows the carrier to be used with newborns as well as older children without the need for purchasing any add-ons. The new removable infant system compared to the 3G carrier is even easier to use and more versatile.
  • Lighter single layer cotton detachable/adjustable sleeping hood to help keep babies and toddlers' head in place when they fall asleep in the Boba 4G carrier.
  • Bag tab on shoulder straps helps to keep bags from slipping off your shoulders.
  • 3 built-in pockets (zip pocket in front of hip belt, zip pocket in front of panel, open pocket on hip belt) that are great for on the go storage for small items like cash, mobile phones, pacifiers or keys.
  • Patent Pending, Detachable Foot Straps attach to the waist belt and designed to keep older children comofrtable while enabling a healthy seating position. The footstraps not only give tired little legs a rest, but support the legs in a flexed abducted (froglike) position which naturally tilts the pelvis, fills out the hip sockets and aligns the spine.
  • Extra wide seat & taller panel provides a wrap around effect that gives extra comfort and support to infants and toddlers using the Boba Carrier System. Approximately 14" wide x 15.5" high.
  • High density foam waist belt for a close fit on the waist or hips, according to individual preference. This effectively distributes the weight of the baby over the hips and takes most of the weight off the shoulder straps, which makes Boba the perfect for both heavy toddlers and newborn babies.
  • Heavy-duty, military grade buckles prevent unexpected opening and ensures peace of mind
  • Rugged, durable and easy to clean. Machine washable.
  • Light-weight and compact design makes it easy to bring on shopping trips and vacation.
  • EN13209-2 Soft Carriers Certified

Made with the help of mountaineering professionals in Boulder, Colorado, USA (thus the name "BO-BA" from BOulder BAby Carrier), the Boba 4G carrier is built so babywearers around the world can continue to enjoy the great outdoors with their growing babies, from birth to pre-school - the perfect carrier for babywearing families!

Patapum Baby Carrier

Patapum Baby Carrier Age range: 5 months approx to toddler
Weight range: up to 40lb (18kg approx)
Positions: upright facing in, back

The Patapum Baby Carrier is a comfortable and very affordable lightweight pack-style carrier. The Patapum has a wide waistband and rucksack style straps with a chest strap to stop the shoulder straps from slipping. Ideal for carrying heavy toddlers, the weight of the child is felt mainly on your hips so you can carry them for long periods in comfort.

Your baby is held with their legs wide apart with their back well supported. This is the optimal position for healthy growth of the pelvis and spine. It is suitable for babies from around the age of 5 months up to 40lb. The manufacturer recommends up to 18 months but it is perfectly possible and safe to use this carrier for longer (2-3 years depending on the size and weight of your child).

The fabric is durable 100% cotton, apart from a soft polyester jersey which is used on the inside of the waist and shoulder straps for extra comfort. There is no padding in the body of the carrier so it is cool for you and your baby and packs up small for travelling.

 

Patapum Baby Carrier 

The Patapum Baby Carrier is machine washable if necessary although generally we recommend spot cleaning rather than regular machine washing. The design is simple and is very unisex so this carrier often appeals to the fathers!

The latest version of the Patapum Baby Carrier comes with a detachable sleep hood made of soft cotton mesh, which snaps onto the body of the carrier and can be used to support the head of a sleeping child. The sleep hood can be rolled up and tucked through two elastic loops when not in use.

Another handy new feature of the latest version of the Patapum Baby Carrier is that the carrier can be rolled up and secured to the waist band with a row of poppers, so it can be worn around your waist a bit like a bum bag when not in use. This is ideal if you are using it with an independent toddler who likes to do a fair bit of walking.

 

 

Patapum Baby Carrier - features

Patapum Baby Carrier sleep hoodPatapum sizing

The Patapum Baby Carrier only comes in one size which will fit most people as the waist and shoulder straps are very adjustable. The waist strap is now fully adjustable to fit a maxium waist of 55 inches, eliminating the need for an extension strap. If you are small waisted the straps can be rolled up and secured by an elastic loop so you won't have long ends hanging down.

 

 

Patapum Fabric Information

The main body of the carrier is 100% cotton, with polyester jersey on the inside of the waist and shoulder straps. The Patapum Baby Carrier is available in black, navy, khaki, red, indigo, sand and chocolate.

Patapum Accessories

The Waist Pouch is available to purchase on our Accessories page. This is a handy pouch which slides onto the belt of the carrier, an ideal size for a wallet, phone and keys.
We also recommend the Wilkinet Showerproof Cape as this works well with the Patapum, especially in the front carrying position.
