Woke up to a great customer email….

Allison, a client from Ontario, sent me an email this morning to thank me for our service. She and her family rented a Full Size Crib for her 1 year old son while visiting family in Calgary this past December.

I was very happy with the quality and cleanliness of the items and very impressed with your customer service. We will be using your again!”

We delivered and set up a GULLIVER full size crib rental with a 4 inch spring mattress, waterproof mattress pad and 100% cotton fitted sheet at the home of her brother and sister in laws. We coordinated the delivery/set up around their busy work schedules and whisked the rental gear away after the holidays were over.

Her brother and sister in law said that everyone slept really well, especially the 1 year old!

Calgary Baby Show 2010

I love Fall! Especially when it comes to the Fall Baby Show & Sale line up.

Again this year, One Tiny Suitcase is participating in the Calgary Baby Show. This is  my favorite show and by far the best show for expectant parents to attend in Calgary.

The One Tiny Suitcase booth will showcase our convenient service available to new and expectant moms in Calgary. We carry the largest inventory of MEDELA Symphony (hospital grade) breast pump rentals. Our service includes FREE delivery!

See you there October 2-3, 2010 10am-5pm.

Not Just For Travel, Baby

When I opened One  Tiny Suitcase in May 2006 it was in response to my own travel woes. I had twins and we were ‘on the road’ in one form or another starting when they were about 2 months old.

I loved the concept of Baby Equipment Rentals and couldn’t help my entrepreneurial itch to get a business of my own started.

4 years later, One Tiny Suitcase has grown to include a bigger range of Baby Equipment Rentals for young families and two locations (Calgary & Edmonton).

Check out the latest coverage in the Calgary Herald about our Medela breast pump rentals:

Calgary Zoolights 2009

The Zoolights in Calgary are back this year and better than ever. Many of our clients that come to Calgary to visit family during the holidays take in this Calgary tradition.

An even better way to see the over 2 Million lights at the Zoo is with a 2 for 1 coupon. Travel Alberta holiday card holders can print off a coupon online for 2 for 1 admission prices.

Travel Alberta Tips for Baby Travel

We were thrilled when we were contacted by a writer for Travel Alberta a few weeks ago.

Their Magazine (City Spice) was doing an article on travelling with kids in Alberta. Since opening our second location in Edmonton, I’d say we had a few tips that would be helpful!

Check out the spread in this month’s City Spice Magazine. The article includes information on our Baby Equipment Rentals, some of the gear we carry and even a quote from our One Tiny Suitcase Edmonton location gal on her recent Baby Moon gone awry.

Home Sweet Hollywood- Tori & Dean

This week’s episode of Tori & Dean’s Home Sweet Hollywood included a special cameo appearance…by several of the One Tiny Suitcase (baby equipment rental) inventory pieces.

Watch this week’s episode to see baby Stella playing in one of our Exersaucers, Liam eating in a Peg Perego Prima  pre=”Prima “>Pappa High Chair, touring the city in one of our Peg Perego Aria strollers or heading out to the mountains in a One Tiny Suitcase Britax Roundabout car seat!

We were happy to outfit their hotel room with these (and more) baby equipment rental items.

Tori and her family were wonderful customers and we were happy to be a part of her visit to Calgary.

Top 5 Family Travel Gear

I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulder. Ever since my twins turned 5 years old I feel like things are just getting easier.

We’re into booster seats not car seats, they ride their own bikes and aren’t on the back of mine, and I haven’t used a stroller in months!

Looking back at how we ever managed to travel with two babies, then toddlers- I don’t know how we could have managed without the following few pieces of crucial gear:

1. gogoKidz Travelmates gogo

2. Snack & Play Travel Trays


3. Baby Bjorn carriers


4. Prince Lionheart Stroller connectors


5. Fabric Travel High Chair harness

Medela Breast Pump Rentals

So, the One Tiny Suitcase website (www.onetinysuitcase.ca) is almost complete. My goal is to have a video demo for every product we carry so that our customers feel confident about renting equipment.

When it came to the MEDELA breast pump rentals we carry, a demo video just didn’t seem like a good idea….Breast Pumps are a pretty personal product, a demo could be tricky, you get the picture. What I decided to do instead was answer some of the basic questions new moms have about how to operate the breast pump.

I meet lots of new moms and many have never even seen a Breast Pump before. Well, here goes:

Please keep in mind that our MEDELA breast pump rentals include free delivery in Calgary (403-510-2005) & Edmonton (587-784-0212).  We are open 7 days a week and can usually have a pump to you in 24 hours. Delivered by moms for moms!
