Want to easily carry your infant while keeping your hands free? Despite the name of this column, we’re not recommending a robot this time: instead it’s a simple wrap made from 95 percent cotton with a little Spandex thrown in, and “free of buckles, straps or snaps.”
The Boba Wrap is comfortable for newborns and infants up to 35 pounds, and holds “snug against your body to achieve a perfect fit every time.” It is also ideal for breastfeeding, the maker says, adding that “carried babies sleep better, cry less, and are healthier and happier. Build a loving bond with your baby while living life to the fullest, with a Boba wrap.”
It’s $38 here.

Hang your baby on the wall? Well, in so many words… Yes. Mommy Essentials says its Babykeeper Basic is an infant carrier that hangs from a wall.

It can also provide a safer and more reliable means of restraining your child in a shopping cart, “making it practically impossible for little ones to climb out of their seat.”
