Edmonton Mom, Pop & Tots Fair

We are excited about the upcoming Baby Show in Edmonton. The Mom, Pop & Tots Fair is Edmonton’s largest show for families.

Held at Northlands in Edmonton I’ll be looking to visit the booth’s of the Douglas Fir Resort, one of Banff’s best hotels for families. My kids loved the water slides there!

Little Dreambug also has some of the best customizable gifts I’ve seen. We exhibited across from them in Calgary and families were lining up for their stuffies. One of these lady bugs came home with us.

Medela will also have a booth set up at the show. We exclusively carry the Medela Symphony breast pump rentals in our 3 locations and am looking forward to seeing what’s new.

I will also be stopping by the Momstown booth to see what they are offering moms who are looking to connect in their local communities.

Wee Welcome and the Sleep Doula will be presenting a booth together at the show. I’m always interested to see what’s new here.

Sweetmama: Have kids will travel

We were thrilled to see the online e-newsletter Sweetmama cover our baby equipment rental business, One Tiny Suitcase.

The article Have Kids Will Travel highlighted some of our newest offerings. We’ve just added some fabulous folding cribs to our baby equipment rental line up. These cribs are super easy to use and can fit in the back of your car for easy transport.

They also mentioned our Medela breast pump rentals. We are the only company to offer reservations for these hospital grade breast pump rentals. Reserve one in advance and be guaranteed one is delivered to your door within 24 hours of baby’s arrival. Now that’s convenient!

Skate Stroller by Peg Perego

We were so excited to add the Peg Perego Skate stroller to our line up of Stroller Rentals  at One Tiny Suitcase.

This high-end stroller was the perfect complement to our Peg Perego Primo Viaggio infant car seats.

Car Seats & Air Travel

Car Seat Travel Bag

This was the site at the Calgary Airport in January 2010. I was waiting for my luggage to arrive from our trip to Hawaii and noticed this poor car seat going by on the belt.

The airlines offer plastic bags to protect your car seats in transit but how much protection does that really provide?

On one mom’s first trip with her 4 week old daughter from Edmonton to Las Vegas she decided to travel with her Peg Perego Primo Viaggio infant car seat. This top of the line car seat is the one she brought her daughter home from the hospital in. She decided to check it in with Air Canada and was shocked to find that it didn’t make it home with her.

At 3am with a new-born baby in her arms she stood at the Edmonton International Airport waiting for her baby’s car seat to arrive. It did arrive….2 days later. The airline offered her a replacement seat to get home with but she was a bit nervous about putting her new baby in a convertible car seat (the only ones the airline had to loan her).

Here are some recommendations for Car Seat Bags if you choose to travel with yours:

Snow Baby

Calgary & Banff are finally snowy! It happened later than usual here in Alberta. Tomorrow is the first day of December and the kids and I were still riding our bikes last week!

With the snow and winter finally here it’s time to start thinking about getting outside with baby. Many of our customers are travelling to Alberta for a winter vacation and have questions about just what kind of gear they will need.

Here is our Top 5 list of Winter Gear for Baby:

1. Leave your stroller at home and bring baby out in a sled like this one: Banff Baby Travel

2. Want to try skating with  your toddler? Bring one of these to the rink:

3. Keep warm on a winter walk with this cover for your Baby Bjorn: Winter Baby Parka

4. High winds and blowing snow are a part of winter here. You’ll need one of these: Winter car seat cover

5. If you  like to cross-country ski, this is a great way to bring your baby along:
Chariot Cross Country Ski Attachment
