When you have a baby, you become accustomed to doing a little extra planning. Whether you’re going on a long vacation to the shore, or you’re just hanging out for the weekend, your child’s needs always come into consideration. You put a lot of time and research into where you will stay, where you will eat, and places you will visit. With the list of all the to-do’s and mental checklists to attend to before you leave, it’s easy to overlook one crucial aspect – what about the baby’s crib? Do you drag your own crib along or opt for crib rental?
Baby cribs come with a lot of cool accessories and functions, but they’re not exactly made with portability in mind. Collapsible cribs are flimsy, and can get damaged in your travels. Short of breaking down your crib at home and taking it with you, how are you supposed to ensure you have a reliable one on vacation?
Here’s a few reasons to consider crib rental for your shore vacation:
With all of the things you’re planning to bring with you on vacation, you don’t want to add in the hassle of a baby crib. The crib you have at home is sturdy and reliable. Dismantling it could compromise its sturdiness when you put it back together. Even if you manage to take it apart and put it back together without any issues, you risk damaging it during the journey.
If you don’t take it apart, it’ll be a hassle to fit into your car (assuming the car is even big enough for it) and it’ll take up an enormous amount of space. For reasons like this, people generally forgo bringing their crib from home.
In addition, if you’re flying, then bringing your crib from home isn’t an option at all. All the more reason to consider crib rental.
Don’t Waste Money
At this point, you’ve probably realized that bringing your crib from home just isn’t practical. Perhaps your next thought is to buy a crib solely for the purpose of the vacation. Maybe you’ve looked into collapsible or portable cribs that can be stowed more easily.
Initially, it seems like a good option, but portable cribs can be easily damaged. Their collapsible design allows for the frame to fold, and you probably prefer the stability of a traditional crib. Plus, there’s still the issue of having to pack it, travel with it, set it up, break it down, and travel with it again. That’s a lot of hassle for something you’ll only use a couple times a year. Plus, once your infant grows to a toddler, your collapsible crib will become just another one of the many items taking up space in your garage or basement.
Conversely, crib rental is often far less expensive than buying a portable crib, and you remove the inconvenience of trying to travel with it.
Crib Rental Means One Less Thing to Worry About
Finding the perfect shore house or beachside hotel is hard enough. Searching for one that already has a crib limits your options even further. Instead, choose the house or hotel that works best for your family, and let the rental company bring the crib to you. That way, your baby’s crib is one less thing you have to worry about.
