Christmas Crib Safety

Many of you will be travelling away from home this holiday season. Like me, your first concern is probably how to make sure everyone gets a good night’s sleep while on vacation! Getting my kids to sleep through the night at home was hard enough for the first few years, travelling upped my anxiety level just a bit more.

Crib safety

Whether you are staying at a hotel, renting a private vacation home or bunking in with grandma and grandpa….make sure baby’s bed meets the same standards for safety you use at home.

Here is a link from Health Canada that tells you what to look for when inspecting a crib.

Consumer Reports has a great article on tips for using a Hotel Crib or Pack n Play.

As an owner of a Baby Equipment Rental company, I can tell you that the pressure to ensure our equipment meets and exceeds current safety standards is high. Operated by parents for parents, I would recommend the services of my counterparts in other cities across the world. But as with everything, double check for yourself before you put your baby to bed!

Bereavement Baby Equipment Rentals

Most of our clients use our services when they are visiting family for holidays, coming for a wedding, here for a special occasion, etc. Unfortunately, some of our clients come to the city on different circumstances.

We recently set up two full size cribs in a Grandma’s home for a set of twins coming on short notice. There was a death in the family and they had to make arrangements at the last minute. All of our full size wooden crib rentals come complete with a waterproof mattress pad and fitted sheet.

Hotel Alma Calgary

As a University of Calgary graduate, I don’t find many reasons to go back to the campus. I had heard that a new hotel had been built on site but didn’t get a chance to explore it until this weekend.

Who knew there was a modern hotel right on the doorstep of the campus? Hotel Alma, owned and operated by the University, has a total of 96 super stylish rooms and the friendliest hotel staff!

One Tiny Suitcase recently supplied a guest of the hotel with a Full Size GULLIVER crib, BABY EINSTEIN exersaucer and a PEG PEREGO high chair. Everything fit really well into the spacious living space of the guest’s hotel room.

Hotel Stays with Baby

Travelling with a baby can present some unique challenges.

When I started travelling with my twins, some of our first trips were to the grandparent’s house in Winnipeg. For the first couple of trips my parents would ask friends for items like a pack n play and toys.

On our first big trip to Hawaii I assumed the hotel would have everything I would need to keep the twins on their nap/sleep schedule. Turns out our hotel didn’t have cribs available and the pack n plays didn’t really meet the safety standards I was used to. We all lost a little sleep on that trip.

When I started One Tiny Suitcase, I knew I wanted to try to provide families with a service that made the transition from home to hotel as seamless as possible so everyone got a good night’s sleep.

That’s why we carry Full Size wooden cribs with 4 inch spring mattresses. We deliver and set up in hotel rooms with comfy 100% cotton Kushies linens included.

GUllIVER hotel

This week we had twins arriving from Edmonton. Two cribs, two happy kids, two well rested parents.
