Gearapalooza in Edmonton….in the snow!

The first ever Gearapalooza in Canada on Wednesday, May 6th, was welcomed by a typical Edmonton experience in spring – a snowstorm.   This didn’t stop the sold out crowd of new and expecting parents from coming out to West Coast Kids to learn about new baby gear and to hear from the baby gear expert himself, Jamie Grayson.   I was lucky enough to be amongst them.

For the first hour or so, we mingled with retailers over sandwiches and desserts (the cannoli was amazing!), watching demonstrations of their latest and greatest products.

I was particularly drawn to the Quinny Yezz stroller.  I have never seen a stroller fold so easily and so compact.  I think it would be great for public transport.  Travelling with my son on the bus with a typical stroller has always been somewhat of a struggle.

The My Carry Potty was another interesting product.  It’s a stylish potty that kids can take with them wherever they go.  I will definitely keep this in mind as my little guy nears potty training age.

Also, the Dekor diaper pail works for both disposable and cloth diapers, something I have never seen before with typical diaper disposal systems. You can also lock the top so toddlers can’t open and throw items in.

Next up was a presentation by Jamie Grayson, the Baby Guy.  With many adoring fans in the crowd, his humourous, yet informative presentation on baby item essentials was well received.  His explanation on car seat installations was the best I’ve heard.   His presentation was very interactive, with lots of audience questions answered.

After the presentation, several lucky attendees went home with great prizes, totaling thousands of dollars.  Everyone went home with a swag bag with loads of products worth more than the cost of admission.

All in all, it was a worthwhile event for new and expecting parents, and a great Canadian introduction to Gearapalooza.

Thank you to Monica for this guest post and for attending Edmonton’s first ever Gearapalooza!

Unique Mother’s Day Gift- Fetal Doppler

Looking for a unique Mother’s Day gift?

fetal doppler rentals

Moms to be love being able to ‘sneak a peak’ and listen in on their little one in the comfort of their home.

Since our opening day in 2006, we have been working hard to add high quality products to our inventory that meet the needs of our clients.

The Fetal Dopplers we carry in our inventory were selected based on a few criteria.

  • Safety– although a doctor’s prescription is not required in Canada to rent a fetal doppler for home use, we have decided to only carry the same Medical Grade, high quality fetal dopplers that the Doctors and Midwives in Canada use.
  • Early Detection– many of our clients are looking for early detection and reassurance early on after they have visited their doctor or midwife. Our Dopplers are able to detect the fetal heartbeat from 9-12 weeks on.
  • Quality– The fetal dopplers are a medical device and although they are very simple to operate, we have chosen units that have a high sound quality and use ultrasound technology to detect the fetal heartbeat.

If you are looking for a local company providing high quality, medical grade fetal doppler rentals please contact us at www.OneTinySuitcase.ca 403-510-2005

Fertility Treatments & Fetal Dopplers

I meet some wonderful women with One Tiny Suitcase. It really is the best part of my job.

Today I was at a woman’s office to pick up a Fetal Doppler rental that she was finished using. I had been in her office 6 1/2 months earlier. We had a very different conversation back then. After 7 miscarriages, numerous fertility treatments, and finally the use of a donor egg…..she was pregnant. She decided to rent a Medical Grade fetal Doppler to use at home for peace of mind.

Fetal Dopplers Calgary EdmontonSeeing her today made my day! She looked happy and healthy and had the most beautiful ‘baby bump’. With only 4 weeks left in her pregnancy she had experienced an uneventful pregnancy. She and her husband were looking forward to welcoming their new baby. They have decided that after such a long journey, they won’t find out the sex of the baby until the big day.

She commented several times on how appreciative she was of having the Doppler to monitor baby’s heartbeat at home during her pregnancy.
