Oahu with kids

I’m writing this week’s blog from Hawaii. My 6 yr old twins are with me and we are staying on the island of Oahu.

Normally Oahu is just a quick stop we make before travelling to other neighboring islands but this time we have decided to make it our vacation destination.

Oahu with kids

The Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore of the island of Oahu is where we are staying. We have a beach villa that is just steps away from the beach.

I’m on a multi-generational trip that includes my parents, my sister and brother-in-law as well as their 6 month old son. I love travelling with extended family, we travel together about once a year.

My must have gadgets for this trip have been an IPOD loaded with kid’s tv shows and movies and my TomTom GPS. When we aren’t at the beach or in the swimming pool we are driving around the island exploring. The kids love the IPOD’s loaded with shows and music just for them. I love the GPS because it gets us where we need to go quickly and efficiently.

We are half way through our vacation….more sun reports to come.

Sweetmama: Have kids will travel

We were thrilled to see the online e-newsletter Sweetmama cover our baby equipment rental business, One Tiny Suitcase.

The article Have Kids Will Travel highlighted some of our newest offerings. We’ve just added some fabulous folding cribs to our baby equipment rental line up. These cribs are super easy to use and can fit in the back of your car for easy transport.

They also mentioned our Medela breast pump rentals. We are the only company to offer reservations for these hospital grade breast pump rentals. Reserve one in advance and be guaranteed one is delivered to your door within 24 hours of baby’s arrival. Now that’s convenient!

Winnipeg Breast Pumps for Rent: Closed as of May 2014

Medela is known for their hospital grade breast pump rentals. Mothers who use a breast pump in the early days after their baby arrives know how important it is to have the right pump.

Winnipeg breast pump rentals

One Tiny Suitcase only carries Medela breast pump rentals because they work so well. Our customers who are pumping want a pump that is efficient, easy to use and reliable.

We’ve decided to include FREE delivery and pick up with all of our Breast Pump Rentals so that parents don’t have to search the city for an available pump rental. Just call us and we can usually have one out to you in 24 hours.

Our rentals are competitively priced and ready to go. The Symphony breast pump rents for $80/month.

Fetal Doppler Rentals in Winnipeg: Closed as of May 2014

As part of our Grand Opening in Winnipeg we have received a brand new shipment of Fetal Doppler Rentals for this location.

Fetal heart monitors for rent in Winnipeg

We carry top of the line, medical quality fetal dopplers. Our baby doppler rentals include all of the ultrasound gel, instructions and batteries you will need.  The dopplers are sensitive from 9-12 weeks pregnant.

You don’t need a prescription in Canada to rent a fetal doppler but we always encourage our customer to let their doctor or midwife know that they are using one. We often have medical professionals refer their patients to us for our rentals as well.

Renting a fetal doppler is a great way to have some extra reassurance in the early stages of your pregnancy. We also have customers who want to share their pregnancy experience with other children, grandparents and spouses that are working out of town.

Here is what one of our customers said about our Baby Doppler Rentals:

“This was a GREAT tool! It has really kept me calm and worked right away at around 9 weeks. It was high quality and was VERY easy to work and locate the heart beat. I can now feel baby kicking so feel more confident.Thanks so much!!!”
