Creating a bond with our children starting at infancy is something that all parents strive for. We hold our babies, sing to them, rock them and love them. But bonding goes beyond our everyday interactions. For me, I found the most soothing, therapeutic bonding time to be while babywearing.

In early infancy, my son practically lived in the Boba Wrap. In an effort to have more bonding with him while staying busy with my older daughter, wearing him in the Boba Wrap was the perfect fit for our family. I used the wrap at home and consistently would put the wrap on before even leaving the house. That way, when attending recitals, open houses, parent/teacher conferences and field trips with my daughter, I didn’t have to lug around an infant carrier. I could comfortably carry my son, keeping him close.

By wearing Christopher as an infant, I helped establish that sense of closeness and security an infant needs. However, it also gave me bonding time with him in the business of our day-to-day life. As he got older and more active, I didn’t want to lose that closeness. That’s when I moved on to using the Boba Carrier. I started consistently wearing him in the Boba Carrier around 10 months old and we are still going strong-and Christopher is now 3 years old!

Christopher is an extremely active child–running, jumping, climbing, biking–you name it, he does it! Wearing him at this age gives us much needed snuggle time. It also keeps him close in crowded or overwhelming situations. Christopher still asks to go in the carrier so he can, “See up high like you do, mommy!” I love the fact that the babywearing bond has extended into the preschool years, especially for such an active child. I never travel without my Boba 3G. In airports, subways, and cities, I put Christopher on my back and it is the easiest, safest way to navigate unfamiliar territories and big cities.

The Boba Family products have played a major part in creating a strong, lasting, bond between my son and I. When any friends I know are expecting, I either buy them a Boba product, lend out one of mine (yes-I own 4 different Boba carriers!), or suggest buying one!
