Boba Wrap Instructions

There is a good reason why, for many parents, the Boba Wrap is the first carrier they use. You're probably holding one right now trying to figure out how to wrap your baby!

You came to the right place! Below you will find step-by-step instructions, instructional videos and information on safe and ergonomic positioning in a wrap (or any baby carrier, for that matter!)

TYING 101

STEP 1

Unfold the wrap and position the Boba logo label over your heart - smooth side of wrap visible front the front, knitted side inward facing.

STEP 2

Lower the outstretched wrap to navel height and bring the ends behind your back ready to cross over and bring back over the opposite shoulder.

STEP 3

Cross the two pieces behind your back. Bring each side up and over your shoulders to the front while keeping the fabric stretched and taut, not slack. Try to also keep the fabric flat so it doesn’t twist.

STEP 4

Take both pieces in one hand and tuck them under (& through) the section with the label on it while keeping the tension.

STEP 5

Give a strong tug downwards, ensuring no slack is left in the back of the wrap or the front horizontal section. The label piece will rise to your chest and should be adjusted to fit snug and cling to your body.

STEP 6

Cross the vertical shoulder pieces and bring them around your waist behind your back. Make sure the pieces cross each other HIGH on your chest area - your sternum is a good reference point. There is no need to leave any extra space for your baby.

STEP 7

Cross the wrap behind your back and if
there is enough fabric bring it back to the front. Again, ensure you keep tension in the wrap so it fits snugly with no room to create slack.

STEP 8

Finally, tie a double knot at your side or in front. Avoid knotting at the back as this could cause discomfort when sitting down and leaning back.

QUICK TIPS & TRICKS

The wrap should fit VERY snugly, like a fitted t-shirt. Test this by pulling the fabric out slightly and make sure it springs back against your body. Newborn babies are used to being snug in your womb, so you won't hurt them.

 

Places to be or errands to run? Tie the wrap on your body before you leave the house so you can just pop your baby in when you arrive. No more trying in parking lots or public restrooms!

LOVE YOUR BABY HOLD

STEP 1

Ensure your wrap is tied correctly (see above). Gently position your baby against your shoulder.

STEP 2

Holding your baby securely, carefully pass his or her leg under the shoulder piece that is closest to your body.

STEP 3

Spread the fabric wide over your baby’s entire bottom, back and shoulder, from knee pit to knee pit. The wider you spread the wrap, the more comfortable and supported your baby will be.

STEP 4

Tuck your baby under the second shoulder piece and spread out the fabric again. The fabric should be spread out to the back of your baby’s knees on both sides and up the entire length of their spine to the nape of their neck. 

 

STEP 5

Find the horizontal pass closest to your body and pull it out and over your baby's legs at the front.

STEP 6

Pull the front panel over your baby’s bottom and up to the back of their neck. For newborns, all 3 layers should meet behind the nape of their neck. Check baby is held securely against your body with no fabric obstructing their face - nose tilted upwards, close enough to kiss.
