Bad Baby Equipment

Part of my job at One Tiny Suitcase involves delivering equipment to hotel rooms. I like to get there just before the customers arrive to set everything up in their room and make sure it is ready for them.

Today I was delivering equipment to a very family friendly hotel in Banff. Upon entering the guest’s suite, I noticed a high chair that had been taken out of the suite while housekeeping was cleaning the room foDamaged High Chairr the next guest. I had to do a double take. This poor old GRACO high chair had seen better days.
As you can see from the picture it is missing 1 cap on the leg making it unstable and had no strap or harness system in the seat.

This is not the first time I have come across dated, damaged baby equipment at hotels in the Calgary & Banff area. I’m sure this problem is not isolated to these areas either. Have a look at these previous posts dealing with the same issue:

It happens, equipment gets damaged, worn out and tired: replace it! If you are traveling and you are given substandard baby equipment, request a replacement. Hotels may not be focused on children’s product safety but you are. If something is damaged or broken, don’t use it.
