Monthly rentals of baby equipment is just the best thing since sliced bread. Just imagine having an extra pair of hands at home. This is exactly what you will experience if you hire or rent an activity centre like a battery operated swing from us. A few extra hours on your computer or just being able to sip a beautiful steaming cup of tea in peace….sigh. Tired and busy mom’s can rent or hire baby scales, infant seat bases, bouncers, jumperoo’s, co-sleepers, breast pumps and hospital bath bassinet trolleys. Rent for one month or when you know you are just going to love this product, rent it for a full 3 months. The longer your hire or rent, the cheaper it gets. Now that sounds to me like a great money saving deal to you!
Many first time mom’s are unsure why they cannot just buy the item and why we advocate renting. The answer is very simple. The products above will definitely only be used for a few months. The baby will either tire of it and loose complete interest ouch! or just be too big or heavy for it.
Let’s take for instance the infant seats. All though the prescribed weight of an infant seat is from birth to 13 kg, in real life 90% of all babies are just too tall or too big for the their seat around the age of 6 months. This is the kind of information you will never get when you are buying it at a store.
The infant seat bases are therefore also only used until 6 months. Not having a base for your seat is just not a good decision anymore. The latest research suggests that 70% of all seats are incorrectly installed and that a having a base will prevent this. Once installed, you never have to do it again. If you have more than one vehicle it is a great idea to have a base for every car. Again less hassle, time and installation mistakes. Having to buy two bases for such a short time can be very costly and therefore renting it makes so much sense.
It was only after 15 years of having my shop that I one day realised that my shelves are brimming over with unwanted short term items of parents. I just never could say ‘no’ to my clients…..This created a huge problem for me. Many clients that end up not using their expensive items like electric breast pumps, want to ask a very high price for their now second hand item. I decided there and then that I would rather buy these items and then the clients can rent it from me!
The activity toys like the swings, jumperoo’s etc. are by far the most popular. Needless to say we forget that we will have to keep our little Angles busy ourselves. Nothing like a pair of extra “arms” to make our lives easier. My personal favourite was the battery operated swing; my son just never got tired of it and I would get an extra 45 minutes of peace. We usually advise parents to rent the bouncers from birth to 3 months, then rent the swings from 3 to 6 months and lastly hire or rent the jumperoo’s from 9 to 12 months. You will be able to swop your activity item as soon as your child outgrows it or as soon as they loose interest in it. You can have a good looking super branded item in your house at the cost of a dime.
Hospital bath/bassinet trolleys are 2 products for the price of one and indispensable. You will be able to bath your baby in the room that is warm enough or close enough hence the wheels, empty or fill the bath without having to carry it and your baby can sleep and bath in the same bassinet. Such a neat idea and very similar to what is being used in hospitals.
Co-sleepers of course have been proven to be the safest sleep option for your baby. Stats has proven over and over that babies need to be next to the parent or at least in same room. For me personally the best advantage of the co-sleeper was the fact that I did not have to wake up completely between feeds or get up and go and feed in another room etc. The 3 hours that mom’s usually have between each feed is sacred time; you are tired and need every second of your sleep. I used to stretch those 3 hours easily to 4 hours. I loved the fact that the co-sleeper could change into a crib as well and that I can push my the crib to any other room during the day.
