Boba Carriers Starting at $59 on Zulily!

This carrier is $59 on Zulily!
I woke up this morning and watched the online crunchy community light up over Boba carriers. What's the big deal, I asked myself. Well, Zulily, a website dedicated to showcasing one-time deals on unique merchandise, has Boba Carriers available until 8/25 (or until supplies run out).

They start at $59 on the the site and go up to $89 for the organic version. I am also hearing that if you use code SMDF10 at checkout, you can get an additional $10 discount on your total! (This code might be limited to first-time buyers).

So, what is a Boba? It's a SSC (soft structured carrier) similar to the Ergo, and perhaps what you would call the competitor to the Ergo. It is often considered a better option for heavier/older children because of the foot rests on the sides. They tend to run $100-160 at regular retail price.

Interested in buying during this deal? Please consider signing up for Zulily through my referral link.


The minds behind Boba are big advocates of keeping Baby close. As their son outgrew his Sleepy Wrap (another of their inventions), they started looking for something bigger. After experimenting with other soft-structured carriers, they invented the Boba. We love that they use 100% cotton for the shell and spent lots of time researching the best design. Watch a clip
Other carriers just didn't seem to keep their growing son completely comfortable. He complained that his legs didn't feel good. Finally, there was a light bulb moment: foot straps. It's those straps that keep the Boba from digging into your little one's legs, keeping kids comfy.
The Boba had to be perfect to please its creators, so no details went unconsidered. It's even made right in their hometown of Boulder, Colorado. That's where the name comes from too: Boba is the short and sweet version of Boulder Baby."
