Special Needs Car Seat Rentals- 4lbs infants

Bringing home a 4lbs infant can be daunting. When my own twins arrived early and were discharged at 4 and 5lbs each, I wasn’t sure what their first trip in the car would be like.

Many parents buy an infant car seat before baby arrives so that they are prepared. Unfortunately, many infant car seats on the market start from 5lbs and up. We specifically carry the GRACO Snugride  and PEG PEREGO Primo Viaggio infant car seats in our rental inventorybecause they can accommodate infants from 4lbs up.

Initiating Your Milk Supply in Hospital

During pregnancy you are probably planning for all the ‘what ifs’ that come along with childbirth. One of the things our clients often ask us about is breastfeeding right after birth.

For some moms this is very easy. After delivery, baby is put on their chest and nature takes over. For other moms who have complications at birth or whose baby may arrive a little early- this isn’t always possible.

New studies are showing that initiating breastfeeding within the first hour after birth has some great benefits for your supply and breastfeeding success overall. If this isn’t possible with baby, the availability of a Hospital Grade double breastpump is crucial.

Special Needs Car Seat Rentals- Spica Cast

Finding out that your child will be put in a Spica hip cast is stressful. Realizing that their current car seat won’t accommodate that type of cast just adds to it.

We have added the DIONO brand of car seat rentals that have been shown to support a child properly in this type of cast. These seats have the lowest sides of any on the market and make it easy for a child in a cast to sit in a 5 point harness seat.

We have special long term rates for clients needing a car seat for the duration that their child is in a Spica hip cast. You can reserve a seat and return it once treatment is over. Call or email us to inquire about availability:

Baby by Backpack= Adventure!

Miss the days when the two of you hiked together exploring new areas and adventures?

Now that baby makes three, you don’t have to give up your explorations. Hiking with your little one in a backpack carrier is a great way for you (and them) to see the sights and it leaves your hands free to check a map or use hiking poles.

As part of our Baby Equipment Rental inventory, we carry the Mountain Equipment Coop (MEC) backpack carriers. These can be used for children that can sit upright until they are 23kg.
