I'm planning on getting a Boba. Ellie is 2.5mo and i only wear her in the ring sling and woven wrap. Lately i've started wearing her in the infantino ecosash with her legs in the froggy position. I was planning on getting the boba when shes about 5months. Me and hubby are going away with her for 4 days. We're planning on bringing the ring sling, woven and boba. Do you think she'll be old enough for the boba then or wait longer? most ppl i'm seeing start wearing in the boba between 6-9mo?

I would think she would be okay as long as she has good head control.  I would definitely suggest doing something that distributes weight over both shoulders so either the Boba or Ecosash if you're going to be walking around a lot.

If she has good head control it should be fine.

We have a boba and it's great but didn't start using it until about 10 months (when we got it).

Here is my 5 month old in my Boba. Not a great picture but you can see how he sits deeper in it than in an ergo. That top blue part gives his head some support, not enough for a newbie but plenty for a baby with decent head control.

This. The Boba is great. I used the 3G for my youngest since birth. She did great in it and it's very comfy. My favorite carrier.
