You may or may not have read about my acquisition of a Boba carrier and subsequent return and replacement of a defective model. Long story short, I’ve had (and loved) my Ergo for about 5 months and got a Boba about 3 weeks ago. I have been using mostly the Boba in that time to get a feel for it to see if I have a preference, though I have also used the Ergo a few times to honestly compare.
Today my Boba carrier went through its final test. The husband test. The Mister commented that he couldn’t even feel it and he kept it on for about an hour or so. My husband is a big guy with very broad shoulders and has never used the Ergo. He wouldn’t have been able to. I have lost almost 20 pounds since I got my Ergo and when I first got it, I was almost at the end of the strap length. Talk about a blow to my self esteem when I was still a few sizes away from plus sized clothing, eh?
