BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. — No one can deny that babies come with a lot of stuff.

"Just to go shopping, it takes like an hour to get them ready," said one local mom we met outside a baby supply store.

That's where Alex Calicchio from Baby Quip comes in. She's an independent quality provider for the company. In other words, she rents baby gear.

"What we do is take the stress out of traveling families," said Calicchio.

She displayed a driveway full of gear, available to rent.

"Baby Quip is a company that rents baby gear to traveling families or hotels or Airbnb or even grandparents, especially in South Florida," said Calicchio." For grandparents, there is just no way down here in a condo they can fit a portable crib or stroller, just for one time a year use."

You can go to to find a local renter, and pick what you need.

"If they say they are going to take the baby to the beach, I also thrown in beach toys," said Calicchio, who tries to set everything up if it's allowed.

She also stressed it's all clean.

"Most of us are moms, so we know it's really important to keep our gear super clean," said Calicchio.
