Why buy baby products when you can rent them?

Waarom babyproducten kopen als je ze ook kunt huren?

Yes, (again) a little one on the way! This means that the necessary baby equipment must be purchased. Very nice, but there is also a lot involved. The internet is teeming with baby play lists, each slightly more extensive than the other. One thing is for sure: you can make it as crazy as you want. The purchase of the layette can be quite expensive. Renting baby products instead of buying new can be a great alternative. Below we list the best benefits for you. 

Save money 

If you have to believe the worldwide web, you need an endless laundry list of baby products. Of course there are products that are indispensable in different phases and often for that reason you are quickly inclined to purchase products that you only use for a short period of time. Quite a shame really, isn't it? Renting baby products for a limited time, such as a co-sleeper, baby nest or breast pump, is a smart solution that can save you a lot of money.

Sharing is sustainable

By renting baby products, multiple parents and babies can use the same product. In the end, less needs to be produced, so that raw materials are less quickly exhausted and CO2 emissions are reduced through less production and transport. In addition, water consumption is reduced, which means that we can considerably limit our impact on the environment. In this way we create a better world for our children together.

More space and tranquility

Japanese tidying guru Marie Kondo swears by it: declutter. It has been proven that a lot of clutter and stuff in the house causes stress. When you own less stuff, there is more space in your house and head. This can be a huge advantage, especially if you live in a small house. The handy thing about renting baby products is that you send them back when you no longer need them. A house with less stuff is automatically a tidier house, so more time for the fun things in life, win-win!

Less bad buys

Let's face it, we all make bad purchases from time to time. Unfortunately, this does not only apply to clothing and shoes, but also when it comes to the layette. A few examples of frequently mentioned bad buys for the baby are the diaper pail, bottle warmer, baby bath with stand, baby nest and a playpen. Renting also significantly reduces the chance of a wrong purchase.
