Boba Air Instructions

-
It's made of ultra-light nylon and it's so tiny you won't even know it's in your purse, but still cushioned and padded in all the right places for the comfiest ride when you need it!

It can be used for carrying your baby on your front or your back facing you like our other sturdier structured carriers while being our smallest and lightest, most packable carrier yet!

Pack and Go

 

The Boba Air is compact, self-storing and light as a feather - just 0.9 pounds! Never be caught without a carrier again! Throw one in your purse or stash one in the trunk of your car and you'll always be prepared for a quick trip to the store, a breezy walk outside, or to tote along a tired toddler.  

Need another reason to love the Boba Air? It's beach friendly! Ultralight nylon fabric and mesh straps mean cool carrying, no salt stains, no wet marks, and no sticky sand.

Front Carry

STEP 1

Fasten and adjust the waist buckle at your back. Allow the body of the carrier to hang down in front.

STEP 2

Bring your baby to your chest and separate their legs so they hang over the wait belt.

STEP 3

Remember, the fabric of the carrier should spread from knee-to-knee and your baby's lower leg should hang freely at the knee.

STEP 4

Bring the body of the carrier up over your baby’s back while securely supporting your baby.

STEP 5

With your left hand supporting your baby, place the right shoulder strap on your shoulder.

STEP 6

Switch hands to support your baby and bring the left shoulder strap over your shoulder.

STEP 7

Bring both hands behind your neck and fasten the chest strap. Tighten to secure although do not 'over-tighten' as the shoulder straps should not pull inwards (>> <<) under extreme tension.

Note: The chest strap can be adjusted up and down to find your perfect fit - for most people, that is at bra strap level. 

STEP 8

Tighten the shoulder straps by pulling down on the adjustment straps if needed.  Lift baby's bottom and support their weight with your forearm while you make this adjustment.


STEP 9

Enjoy wearing your baby!

When you're done, simply fold the carrier back into its pouch and stash away for your next adventure.

Back Carry

Back carry is only recommended for babies with full head/neck control and who can sit unassisted.
-

STEP 1

Fasten the waist belt and place one shoulder strap on your shoulder.

STEP 2

Start by holding your baby on your hip in the natural ergonomic position.

STEP 3

Slide your hand between the carrier and your body. Holding your baby securely, gently shift their weight to your back while leaning forward.

STEP 4

Supporting your baby with the panel of the carrier, slide the other shoulder strap on your shoulder.

STEP 5

Fasten the chest strap in front - the chest strap should be at approximately armpit level although it can be adjusted to find your sweet spot.

Note: Do not 'over-tighten' your chest strap as the shoulder straps should not pull inwards (>> <<) under extreme tension.

 

STEP 6

Tighten the shoulder straps by pulling down on the adjustment straps if needed.

Ergonomic Positioning in an Air

Even with an "emergency" carrier, we still care about the safety and ergonomics of your babywearing adventure, so make sure your baby is always supported from knee-to-knee and all across their back with knees at hip level or higher! Learn more at our "What's a Pelvic Tuck?" blog post here

 

Breastfeeding in an Air

Your baby should also always be in view and close enough to kiss, except when breastfeeding on the go - yes, you can even breastfeed in your Boba Air! Learn more at our "Nursing in a Baby Carrier" blog post here
