About Carry Me Baby Carriers Rental Service
Carry Me Baby Carrier rental service offers parents the opportunity to try out baby carriers before investing them. High quality baby carriers truly are an investment, and this service allows for the chance to try a variety of styles out to help parents determine which carrier best suits their needs. At $20 per month with a one-time $10 sign-up fee per carrier, carriers can be rented at a fraction of the cost of buying new! Options include buckle carriers, Mei Tais, ring slings, and woven wraps and come in sizes that will accommodate babies and wearers of all sizes. New wearers have the option of receiving a free e-mail consultation to help choose the best carrier to try, and clean and sanitized carriers are shipped within 48 hours of completing the rental agreement. The renter uses the carrier as if it were their own for the duration of the rental period, then returns it dirty in a pre-paid postage envelope when done. A gift certificate from Carry Me Baby Carriers makes the perfect gift for new parents, or parents new to baby wearing!
Our Experience
From the beginning, my experience with Carry Me Baby Carrier Rental Service has been smooth and easy. The website was easy to navigate, and I could easily see which carriers were available with the option of searching by carrier type or by size. The detailed information provided about each carrier is helpful for new wearers, a demographic that is one of the most likely to utilize and benefit from this service. As an experienced wearer, I was impressed with their selection and found a variety of carriers that I hadn't yet tried.

The customer service I received was fast, friendly, and helpful. I narrowed down my selection to a few different choices, and upon providing my general size, my baby's general size, and what I was looking for in a carrier, received a recommendation for a carrier that turned out to be a great fit for us in both size and functionality. The process to redeem the gift certificate and check out was simple and straightforward.The carrier shipped quickly and arrived in wonderful condition, along with babywearing resources including information on how to contact my local babywearing group (which I was especially tickled by, as a co-founder of the group!). The package also included packaging with which to return the carrier at the end of my rental term, and instructions on how to receive a free shipping label to send it back when the time comes. 

The carrier we tried was daddy approved!

A gift certificate for Carry Me Baby Carrier Rental Service would make an excellent gift for anyone interested in babywearing, from beginner to enthusiast! New wearers will be able to try out carriers without a huge commitment or investment, and experienced wearers can try something new-to-them before adding to their stash!
