Renting a Breast Pump

Many of the calls I get about the MEDELA breast pumps we carry are from Moms before their baby has arrived.

A common question is, “Why would I rent a pump and not just buy one?” There are lots of reasons why it makes sense to rent one of the MEDELA Symphony (hospital grade) breast pump. Here are a few:

  • You may only need to pump for the first few weeks while you are learning to breastfeed. A rental is a great way to get you through the first little bit of breastfeeding without investing in a pump if you don’t need one long term.
  • If you are planning to travel and need to be away from your baby for a little bit. A breast pump rental will allow you to keep up your milk supply while you are away.
  • The Hospital Grade Breast Pumps are powerful and reliable. There is a reason why the hospitals bring you a Symphony pump if you need one in the hospital. They are known as being the best!

BRITAX car seats expired today

We clean and safety check each piece of Baby Equipment Rental gear when it comes back.After this long weekend, two of our BRITAX Roundabout car seats were ready for retirement. The Government of Canada recommends car seats have an expiry date of 5 years from when they were manufactured. BRITAX itself uses an expiration date of 6 years.

We always follow the strictest safety guidelines and have retired these two car seats after 5 years of use. They still look like new but it’s the integrity of the plastic that renders them less safe after 5 years so we have removed them from our inventory.
