Our Baby is turning 10!

Calgary, Alberta (May 1, 2016) – One Tiny Suitcase, announces their 10-year anniversary.

In May of 2016, local baby equipment rental company, One Tiny Suitcase will celebrate ten years of successful business in Alberta. Launched in 2006, One Tiny Suitcase has come a long way since their start and humble beginnings in a NW Calgary basement. Started by a mother of twins, this unique rental service has experienced notable growth, doubling in size from one location to two.

One Tiny Suitcase specializes in short term rentals of equipment for babies and families. There most popular items include the BRITAX Marathon car seats for families visiting Alberta. MEDELA Breast Pumps and NICOLET fetal dopplers are available for new and expectant mothers as well. Their rental items take parents from pregnancy and beyond with convenient rentals of key items.

As a proud member of Tourism Calgary, One Tiny Suitcase has partnered with key members of the business community to provide rentals to charity events, community gatherings and visitors to world class events like the Calgary Stampede.

One Tiny Suitcase’s head office is located in Calgary, Alberta and is headed by founder, Stacey Corbett. Corbett speaks on behalf of her passionate and dedicated team saying, “At One Tiny Suitcase, we continuously strive to serve our clients’ needs by offering the latest equipment rentals with a high level of service.” Corbett notes that she is extremely proud to see how far the company has evolved and is thankful for the support of her team, family, friends, clients, and the entrepreneurial spirit of the Alberta community, which have each contributed to One Tiny Suitcase’s growth and success.

Consumer Reports: Best Breast Pump Buying Guide

Consumer Reports has researched and reviewed everything from sports cars to dishwashers. They are the authority on all the things we like to purchase. They recently completed a report on Breast Pumps. They test and review everything from Hospital Grade Breast Pumps to small hand held manual pumps. Not sure what you will need? Here is what they had to say:

“Consider renting a hospital-grade breast pump if you’re not sure how long you’ll need to use a pump or if you know you’ll need to pump for only a short time and you plan to be home with your baby. If you expect to use a breast pump regularly, especially if you plan to return to work, buy a top-quality midweight, personal-use, automatic model at the best price you can find. This caliber of pump will help you to get a significant volume of milk in a given time and will be your best bet for maintaining your milk supply. If you plan to use a breast pump only occasionally, a manual pump or a small electric or battery-operated one will probably be all you need.”

They even go into the pro’s and con’s of each type of pump:

Hospital-grade breast pumps

These electric powerhouses are about the size of a car battery and can weigh 5 to 11 pounds. Manufactured for users in hospitals and for those who choose to rent, they have sensitive controls that allow you to regulate suction rhythm, intensity, and pressure. Some have a pumping action that’s almost identical to a baby’s natural sucking, which can help to build and maintain your milk supply. A hospital-grade pump can cut pumping sessions in half–to just 15 minutes with a dual pump, which empties both breasts at once. These are expensive to buy, but you can rent them from hospitals, medical-supply stores, lactation consultants, drugstores, and specialty retail stores. Choose this option if nursing is difficult because your baby has trouble latching on, if you’re not sure how much you’ll need a breast pump but you want one on hand just in case, if you plan to pump for three months or less from home, or if you must dramatically increase your milk supply and need the power of a hospital-grade pump.

Pros: They’re fast and efficient. Many are also light, comparable to a midweight, personal-use automatic pump.
Cons: Even though some come with a rechargeable battery and an adapter for use in a vehicle, many don’t come with a discreet carrying case. You wouldn’t want to lug one to and from work every day because it can be awkward and heavy.

Twins and Triplet’s Club Newsletter Article on Breastpumping

 

The Calgary Twins and Triplet’s club was a big part of the successful start I got when I had my twins prematurely at 34 weeks. The support and resources the group provides was essential to my family and many others in the city.

I contributed an article (ttmac article) on Breastfeeding and the use of a Breastpump so that other moms could see the range of options available.

I never imagined that 11 years after my twins birth, I would be sharing my experience and knowledge with moms of expectant multiples through my business, One Tiny Suitcase. It has been a journey and continues to take me places I didn’t expect!
