Carrier Review: Onbu by QB

Type of Carrier: Onbu by QB
Carrier details: standard size
Wrappee:  BabyG (boy)– 12 months – 12kgs
Wrapper:  small – chubby build –US size 10

QB or Quality Brand – QB Collection  is a local business from the Northern mountainous regions of the Philippines. The weavers are natives from the Cordillera province – making our locally woven carriers, indeed, come from the sea of clouds and crafted by heavenly hands. Most QB products have native or tribal patterns that are reminiscent of the Cordilleran culture. Babywearing is part of their culture, too.

First glance – For me, it looked like a cross between an SSC and a Mei Tai. The shoulder straps are thinly padded as if it were an SSC and it does not have locks or clasps, instead, it has straps for you to tie and secure your bubba in place.

Design – I like how light-weight it was and how it was not complicated to wear. My reference for wearing this was wearing a Mei Tai. (check out how to wear a Mei Tai here!)
I recommend to have a wider panel on the leg section to achieve the wide deep M seat. Or that, my son is too big for the standard size. I have yet to experience SSCs so watch out for that tester!

The straps needs some adjusting to fit onto my shoulders perfectly to avoid them from slipping and having any kinds of accidents. It must be that I have petite shoulders (shoulders only haha!) or the straps would need to be re-sized. The chest strap tends to go higher when I try to have a deep M seat for Baby G. The chest strap may need some re-sizing. Also, it would be better if there's a waist strap as added support. 

Remember, safety first! As a first time Onbu user, I need a bit more adjusting all in all. Hopefully, I'd get to test other Onbu brands to see and feel the difference. 

Weather/season – Slightly warm with baby-mommy (chest to chest) contact but it's quite airy due to its material. It has enough breathing space on the side that allows air to pass through freely. This is perfect for tropical babywearing. 

Mummy budget – It is just below the Soft Structured Carriers (SSC) price tag so it's definitely a super saver.

Sunny summary –  Onbu is a no-brainer, no-fuss type of carrier. You can easily pop your bubba in and out in a jiffy. Due to certain strap adjustments, I'd give it 3.5 out 5 sprinkles of sleepy dust.


  1. maam nice review just a correction Ifugao is different from Benguet, they are both province of Cordillera. People here are generally called cordilleran or igotrots :)

GRAND OPENING PROMO on Mary Pauline Main Square Mall

How long since you visited your “mother ship”, Momma?  We all know that nice hair, nice nails definitely need maintenance. It’s high time to pamper yourself after maintaining EVERYTHING. I’m just pretty excited to let you know that there’s a new, hot salon right now!
My good friend and mom-preneur, Mia, just recently opened her Mary Pauline Salon – Main Square Mall in Bacoor, Cavite. Who knew that her hobbies and interests in beauty and make-up turned into her business someday? Don’t get me started on how we got to where we are now since we have a history of taking Biology in college. Funny how life turned out for us!
Mary Pauline MSM is a full service salon from nails to hair; they even have Gluta IV drip which I’d love to try soon. They also have Eyebrow embroidery coz, of course, Kilay is LIfe. They had their Grand Opening on October 28, 2017 with smashing discounts. They had a ribbon cutting and catering for this special occasion.

I can’t help but feel the need to share THEIR FABULO…

Benefit and Mommievents has teamed up to set up The Ultimate Guide to Being a Benefit Babe workshop which showcased how to do brows and make up just like a Certified Benebabe. This took place in the charming Benefit boutique at Alabang Town Center on April 29, 2017.

Participants witnessed make up techniques and tips from the workshop instructor: Jedd Entilla, Benefit Makeup & Brow Expert. Since it's a Benefit workshop, the participants got their hands on Benefit products which was everyone's favorite part.

There were snacks and refreshments. There were loot bags that have Benefit giveaways.

The workshop started with introductions by Desha Buen, Benefit Assistant Expert and Camille Manalo from Mommievents. The participants were grouped together to gear up for the workshop's agenda. There were two groups: Marshmallow Mamas and Glam Girls. They had a short group introduction by making a cheer presentation before they star…

A Chat with a Top Model: Chesca Lagua

Benefit and Mommievents recently paired up and created a workshop called The Ultimate Guide to Being a Benefit Babe at the dainty Benefit store in Alabang Town Center. Franchesca Lagua is one of the event ambassadors alongside DJ Sexy Megan from Yes FM. Chesca graced us with her top model presence and with an extra helping of sky high legs and ultra lean figure from Shanna Retuya (ramp/commercial/Philippine Fashion week model). 

Although the pair towered all of us, they were the most down-to-earth darlings. They were up for selfies and quick chats with participants. I took the opportunity to take a selfie with Chesca which would seemingly look like Lady Galadriel and a hobbit would photograph together. She hunched halfway as I tiptoed, tilted and angled my phone so both of us can fit into the frame.

Before I transform this feature into some LOTR geekery, here's the score on Chesca's make-up go-to and the real deal on Asia's Next Top Model:
