Boba is a Soft Structured baby carrier (SSC) that is intended for children between 15 to 45 lbs. Boba has a few extra inches of height to keep your center of gravity closer to your body and support your little one's back. The innovative thing about the Boba carrier is that there are foot straps attached to the waist belt for the child’s feet to sit in enabling a healthy sitting position for the child. The footstraps not only give little tired legs a rest, but support the legs in a flexed abducted (froglike) position which naturally tilts the pelvis, fills out the hip sockets, and aligns the spine.
They also have a great spot on their site where they compare types of carriers the link for it is Here

I have recommended that The Nappy Shoppe stock them and Sharni the owner has said that she will stock them so look forward to those if your going to buy any carrier from The Nappy Shoppe please email me and we will make sure it's the right carrier for you. I'll have pictures of me using the Boba with my boys soon but right now it's out on loan to a friend so it'll have to wait.
Below are pictures of my friend Brenda over at Adventures of a Crispy Mama wearing my boba with her two boys. I think from the looks of things you can tell they approve.
Her oldest son did not like the foot straps so they didn't use them and her youngest wasn't quite big enough for them yet. I need to get a picture of my oldest with them because I think he's a great size for them.
