As most of you know over the weekend our little family ventured to Asheville, NC so I could attend the Type-A Mom Conference. I was excited to have my boys come along even though I knew I wouldn’t see them much. Knowing Joe, I gave him a list of fun activities he could do with Jude while I was conferencing it up. Asheville has a wonderful downtown great for walking around, and we love going for family walks. However, Jude despises the umbrella stroller that we own. He loves riding in our jogging stroller but taking that with us was not an option, it’s just too big.
A while back I remembered hearing about companies that rent baby equipment and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to look into such a service. As luck would have it I found The Well Traveled Child in Asheville that rents just about any baby/child equipment you might need. Whoever thought up this idea was a genius. Baby’s come with so much paraphernalia and traveling with all of it can be exhausting.
The Well Traveled Child offers everything from full-sized cribs and jogging strollers to buckets of toys and safety gates. Their site is easy to use. You just select the items you wish to rent, dates required and contact information then they contact you with all the details. The prices are very reasonable with daily and weekly rates plus they will deliver your rentals for a small fee.
We rented a jogging stroller for the weekend and it was a real life saver. Anything that reduces the risk of tantrums is a winner in my book. Jude loved riding in the rental stroller and it was so nice to not worry with fitting all of our luggage and a big stroller in our trunk when traveling.
If you plan on traveling to Asheville with your family leave all the big baby gear at home and rent from The Well Traveled Child!
I received a free jogging stroller weekend rental in exchange for this post. The opinions expressed in this post are my own and not influenced by the company.
