Boba X Adjustable Carrier - Oceana
The Boba X has it all! A wonderfully comfortable carrier with all the features you need, but is super simple to use.
Boba Carriers have always been renowned for simplicity and style in their carriers, and the Boba X takes this to a new level.
Boba X can be used from newborn to toddler, making this carrier wonderful value and the only carrier you need up until your child reaches 20kg..
While many carriers need an infant insert or have set positions for different ages, the Boba X uses a sliding adjustment which means you can micro adjust the carrier base to fit perfectly from newborn and beyond.
What makes the Boba X so awesome?
- Micro-adjusts to your little one AND to you!

- Regulates in width and height without looping, snapping and rebuilding the carrier
- Allows for quick height modifications for arms out toddler, breastfeeding or sleeping baby neck
- Achieves the optimal seat with one smooth slide and locks in place with a flat press of your hand.
- Grows with your baby! No more trying to fit into three rigid stages of development/adjustments.

This is actually the best thing I purchased in preparation for my second bub. It's the most comfortable carrier I've ever used, quick to put on (essential when you also have to chase a toddler), and completely adjustable. My husband is sick of me telling him how much I love it...
Awesome Buckle Carrier
By Natasja from Taupo on 30 August 2019
I am loving my new Boba X Ziggurat thanks so much to The Sleep Store. Here are some of the reasons why I love this carrier:
- Adjustable. I love that the base and panel height can be easily adjusted to fit newborn all the way through to toddler.
- Crossable straps. Great to be able to choose to cross the shoulder straps or have them in the H set up.
- Chest strap sliders. It's so easy to slide the chest strap up and down to find the most comfy position (and it makes it easier to do up or unclick when front wearing).
- Handy bag holder clips. Great to be able to keep my bag from falling off my shoulder or to clip on a toy.
- Great shape/design. The carrier fits him really nicely and seems to give great support and a nice supportive shape.
- Handy hood for sun/wind/rain protection and I like that I can remove it easily when I don't need it on.
- Fabric. Feels so smooth and love the pattern.
- Waist buckle. I like being able to adjust the waist buckle both ways so I can centre it on my back (not have it fixed on one side).
- Pocket. So helpful to have a pocket to store my cards in.
- Comfort. The padding and shape of the straps is lovely and it fits so nicely that I can wear it for hours and it feels so comfortable.
I look forward to demo'ing this carrier at each Baby and You course so other mums can see just how awesome this buckle carrier is!
I'm so glad that the Sleep Store Baby-Carrying sell this product. It's a very affordable, comfortable, easy to use carrier that I am so happy to recommend.

I love love love love this carrier, if youâre thinking of buying it do it, you wonât regret it.
Iâve used many carriers with my three kids and in the past have favoured Tula and Ergo so was reluctant to branch out from those brands and almost bought a Tula Free to Grow, Iâm so glad I went with this instead. The ability to adjust pretty much every part of the carrier is amazing and makes it super comfortable for both baby and wearer.
After not sleeping for more than 20 mins in a row the last few days my wee one was asleep within a few minutes of getting in the Boba X for the first time and slept over THREE HOURS!!!
Without a doubt the Boba X is worth every penny.

This carrier is very comfortable for the wearer and the adjustments for bub are easy to make. How nifty is that little shoulder bag keeper clip! Way cool. I have used this carrier with our 4month old (me 5ft 3 and bub 7kg) and my partner with our almost 4 year old (he's 5ft 10 and little Mr 16kg). Honestly it's pretty amazing that one carrier can comfortably function for those ranges! The fabric is soft too.

I've got a Boba X ready for when belly bubs comes earthside, but Miss 5.5 years has been getting lots of practice with demo doll. The waistband goes nice and snug on her and with the shoulder straps crossed, forms a reasonably tight fit. Looking forward to getting a newborn into it in a couple of months.
Exceptional birth to toddler SSC
By Bella from New Plymouth on 8 May 2019
Can't rate this carrier high enough! We run a library of baby carriers and this is one of our most popular due to its wide ranging adjustability and ease of use. The fact that it looks good and feels great is a bonus too! This carrier also suits larger and taller people and those with a big bust. It feels durable yet very soft, which I also like - certainly not a scratchy canvas like some carriers. I also like the zip in toddler extensions - an awesome feature that makes this carrier truely suitable for use into toddler hood. Highly recommend this :)
Amazing comfort and style
By Christina from New Plymouth on 8 May 2019
I have been loving using my new Boba X. It is such a comfortable fit for both me and my bub. I love how adjustable the straps are on me and also around my baby. Even my husband can get it to fit him nicely :) Baby is super happy in it and doesn't mind it for short or long walks or town adventures. Would rate this highly and great value for cost too!!
Also, I love how fast the sleepstore are at sending out your purchase. My orders always arrive literally the day after I buy online!! :) It's a busy mum's dream outcome!
Comfortable and versatile
By Emma from Tauranga on 8 May 2019
We've been using the Boba X with our 12 month old for the last month and it has been a lifesaver.
This is probably the only carrier that my partner (who is 6'4") and I (5'7") both find super comfortable, and has become our go-to that we never leave home without.
The material is super soft, more like a wrap than some of the stiffer canvas type cotton found on other carriers. The straps are nicely padded - not too bulky but enough so that you don't get any bits digging in anywhere. It has the option to cross the straps at the back for more support however I found I didn't really use this option much as I found it a bit awkward to grab the strap and clip it in, and I liked having the ease of moving our son from front to back carry and vice versa on the go.
The Boba X is also super adjustable. It can seem a little daunting when you first get it out of the box as it has lots of clips and adjusters but it's really straightforward (the instructions are great too) and once you've used it once or twice it's easy. The chest/back clip on zip adjusters is brilliant too - so easy to get it in the right spot. The bag clip on the shoulder is genius.
I'm not sure how the carrier would fit with a tiny newborn, as even on the narrowest setting I don't think our son would have fit in it until he was perhaps 8 weeks old.
Our son is now almost 12kg at 12 months so on the chunky side and tends to wriggle and whinge when facing in in our other carrier, but was happy in the Boba. The combination of the soft fabric and the extra leg padding seems to be a winner. The hood can be a little annoying/bulky for bigger toddlers when it's rolled up in its pocket but that's easily fixed by just unzipping it or taking it off completely.
The addition of toddler width adjusters mean that we will get a lot of wear out of this for at least a couple of years to come too.
Better than Good
By Rhianon from Auckland on 29 April 2019
I've been using the Boba X for the few last months with 2 of my own children and also as part of the sling library I run. I have to say, I'm really impressed at the ease of adjustability, and the huge range of sizes it fits. My baby, who is now 6 months, fits perfectly and it has easily grown with her. My son has just turned 3 and is typically way too big for most standard carriers. Whilst I wouldn't wear him a lot in this, it was surprisingly comfortable when I did need to, and provided a good deep seat despite it not being knee to knee. And I didn't need a degree in rocket science to adjust it between the 2 kids - it actually took less than a minute.
I myself am short and voluptuous (plus sized), and had minimal uncomfortable diggy spots. Hubby is tall, broad and has a long torso (like a fridge) and also got a great fit. I've also fit this well to petite wearers and almost everything in between. You can get a pretty good fit with some newborns, but it was fairly tricky.
I was just as comfortable with a back carry as a front carry, and it still easily adjusted both ways. The cleverness of the design really shows in this aspect.
The sheer amount of adjustability took a little getting used to, and in truth, the manual could be a little clearer. But once you understand what each strap does, it's actually pretty revolutionary.
My only complaint is that the chest clip slider is really easy to slide, and I found it slipping up often (especially when breastfeeding), so found myself having to tug at them a lot to keep them down at a comfortable level. Not a deal breaker though.
All in all, the Boba X is better than just good - it's an excellent carrier. Well thought out and easily adjustable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
Amazing Boba X Carrier
By Esther from Kaikoura on 17 April 2019
I have been using the Boba X Oceana carrier for a month now. Iâm am so, so impressed with this carrier. I love how you can adjust the seat size to suit Newborn babies and then it easily extends out with Velcro adjusters as baby grows, then you can zip on seat extenders when you have a toddler. I love that you donât need extra bulky newborn inserts!
The fabric is so soft and the print of the Oceana is gorgeous. Iâm also enjoying the rain/sun hood. We have had variable Autumn weather so I have used the hood to protect baby from sun and rain, keeping her snug as a bug. I love that the hood is the same material as the rest of the carrier so blends in nicely when being used.
The Boba X is very easy to use, itâs comfortable even on long 1-2hour hikes that I have been doing. I love being hands free to run around after my other children. I canât recommend this carrier enough. Itâs so lovely and my baby girl sleeps like a dream in it, she is so happy to be in the carrier so I enjoy the bonding snuggles. I have used other carriers and the Boba X is definitely my favourite.

We highly recommend Boba to parents choosing their first baby carrier starting their parenting journey or anyone looking to add another excellent babywearing option for their family. The Boba Stretchy Wrap is our most recommended stretchy due to its beautiful quality, 2-way stretch fabric. It is easy to wrap with and beautifully soft for wrapping your precious newborn.
We also highly recommend the Boba 4G Carrier. It offers amazing value and lots of comfort for your carrying journey, as it can be used from newborn to about 3 years. This means one carrier with many ways to use it. The Boba 4G includes a very simple, easy to use infant insert and has 3 different size settings. The Boba 4G can be used on the front and back, with awesome duel adjustable straps. The shoulder straps and waist on the Boba 4G are well padded and comfortable.
With a core range of Boba designs and regular limited editions, you are sure to find a Boba to suit your family. The business is built on supporting the bond between baby and parent with baby carriers, baby wraps and accessories designed just the way you wish they’d be. So go ahead and wander. Today, the destination is anywhere.
The start of Boba
Boba began its journey much as it continues today: on a great adventure. In 2007, Elizabeth Antunovic and her husband Robert packed up to travel the world with nothing more than their two kids, two suitcases, a few thousand dollars and an idea that was too good to keep waiting. While abroad—traveling through Ireland and the Balkans, spending a month in Egypt and making temporary homes in the Rajasthan desert, the tropics of Karnataka and a rich mingling of other global destinations—Boba began to bud.
The couple worked on trains, from hammocks, in adobe huts and under mosquito nets. They answered emails on the shores of the Adriatic, Arabian, Red and Mediterranean Seas. And soon, Robert’s deep-seated entrepreneurism moved Elizabeth’s baby wrap idea from concept into company. On the very day the website launched, Boba made its first sale and the rest, as they say, is history.
Today, Boba is still owned and operated under the watchful eyes of both Elizabeth and Robert, but their family has now grown to include a full, extended team of expert exploration enthusiasts.
