Which Baby Carrier Is Right For Me?

So, you’re pregnant, or maybe you’ve recently had a baby, and you’re thinking about baby wearing. Maybe it never crossed your mind until you realised that you have a Paua baby who doesn’t like to be put down and suddenly can’t get anything done.

The Boba Serenity Wrap – Soft Carrier.

The Boba is our most affordable carrier at $89.95 & is incredibly comfortable. I find this wrap carrier perfect for baby wearing when your baby is little, or if you’re wanting to mainly baby wear around the house. In the early days, Hugo lived in his Boba wrap and it was his favourite place to sleep.

The Boba wrap can be used from birth & is a great way to keep your baby close without the weight and bulk of a more structured carrier.

The Boba is a hip-healthy carrier, and is a one-size fits all! Made from Bamboo, French Terry Cotton + Spandex for stretch and breathability.

The Boba can be used for children up to 16kg – meaning you get great longevity out of your wrap!  

The Nuna Cudl – Structured Carrier.

The Nuna Cudl is a comfortable structured baby carrier featuring breathable mesh fabric & padded shoulder and waist straps. It is a hip-healthy carrier to keep your child in the optimal position for development.

The Nuna Cudl can be used from birth with the built-in newborn insert that can be unzipped as your child grows. The Cudl can be worn in three different carry positions – inward facing front carry, outward facing front carry, and back carry. The Cudl is designed for children up to about 36 months – 16kg approx..

Additional features include - four magnetic buckles that make the carrier easy to secure and attach, integrated newborn booster, GOTS certified organic cotton bibs (comes with two – perfect for spilly/teething babies!), zip storage pocket on waist band.
