Default renting cribs and high chairs

we have our granddaughter visiting next December and we were wondering if there was a service in the Villages that rents out cribs, high chairs etc for a week or so?
thanks

Doug - I know nothing of these places. Only found them in doing some searches:

http://www.babysaway.com/index.html Click on "Locations", then "Florida", and scroll down to "The Villages".

Hope that helps!

There are baby rental places, but what we did was keep the mattress only from my kids' crib (I have moved this around the country I don't know how many times, and finally used it) for toddlers or up to about age 6, keep a pack n play in the attic .

I only have 2 grandchildren so far, but we have 3 more adult children, so who knows - and one of those strap-on-a-seat booster seats that has a tray. Work especially great on some bar stools - you can sit in a normal chair and feed a baby, or put it on a regular chair near the table (preferably on the lanai unless you have tile floors in your eating area.

We keep the crib mattress under the guest room bed, and the pack n play and booster seat in the attic above the garage. If it's difficult for you to access this, let the parents get it out. Sure has come in handy.

My daughter would probably be hesitant about rented stuff (germs) even though she's not all that fussy. We also keep a couple of bins of various age toys in the attic and the 3rd bedroom closet. Check out keva planks (online) for something different and totally engrossing for 5 yr olds and up - and even Grandpa.

Default Baby Bundles!

We have rented from Baby Bundles. Everything was spotless and looked like new. They steam the equipment after each rental, and do all returned linens. They do not want you to wash sheets, etc. They deliver, set up, take down and pick up. And, we felt they were reasonable.

Lindsay, the baby's mother, was really pleased with what was rented. And so was Maclin, the 8 month old. He was a happy guest.

We also have used Baby Bundles and were very happy with them. You don't have to do a thing...they come to your house for drop-off and then back again for the pick up.

I have rented from Baby Bundles on the go many times, as as previously stated their equipment is probably cleaner than any car seat crib walker stroller that I ever placed my clildren in.

They ask how old the baby - child is and adds books DVD''s or something you didn't think of. They will install the car seat if needed they deliver, set and take down cribs, pack n play whatever you need. Belinda's only regret is that she doesn't see the grandchildren.

you will not be disapointed.
