You have a new baby to show off to Grandparents. You decide to fly and surprise them, but when you get to the airport you don’t have a car seat, or you have a young family and you want to visit for a week so you load the car but it doesn’t all fit.  Granny doesn’t have things from when you were a baby and neither of you wants to buy new stuff again.


At Baby Stuff 4 Hire we pride ourselves on our personal, efficient and friendly service offering everything you could need for you and your baby’s travels, including wooden cots, car seats, strollers, monitors and a large stock of matching highchairs – great for weddings and parties.
