Boba Carrier Contest

I've been considering for a while now the need (or lack of) for a new carrier for Goose... when she was younger I used the Infantino Front-to-Back carrier, and really liked it a lot.. But when my niece Cupcake was born 7 months after Goose, I traded carriers with my sister, who had received the Infantino Side Rider as a shower gift. The Side Rider has a higher weight requirement, so I let her borrow the Front-to-Back and started using the Side Rider... but there was one slight problem with this arrangement... the fact that I hate the Side Rider. It's not comfortable for me, I can't get it tight enough to fit well and stay where it's supposed to, and it's kinda difficult to get Goose in & out of. Luckily we don't go very many places where I need a carrier anymore, but every now & again I think "man, I wish I had a carrier!" - in fact we do have an event in a couple of weeks that we're going to and it looks like I'm going to have to buckle down and get a new carrier, or use the umbrella stroller... of which I also don't love. Apparently I'm all over the place with my registry successes - some items I love, some I don't. I'm getting so off-topic though. Typical. Anyway.

Mrs. G.I. Joe over at ACU's, Stiletto Shoes & Pretty Pink Tutu's is hosting an awesome giveaway for Boba Baby Carriers... I checked out their site, and it looks very similar to my Front-To-Back carrier, but even more simple & functional - and also - lots prettier!! So, I wanted to share the info and the opportunity to win this contest by directing y'all over to Mrs. G.I. Joe's blog (by clicking the link... ya know, the bold purple link above... no, not that one... yeah, that one!) and good luck to us all!

Lucky for you, I'm getting another hand me down carrier! So you can have your back....unless I hate the new one or it's ugly, then I'll let you have that one! :)

The other options include like a beco which is really nice or an Ergo. I've not heard of the Bobo before. Check out thebabywearer.com before buying one just because I'd hate for it to have crappy reviews and you spend money on it.
