You can leave the strollers and pack-and-plays at home the next time you have infant travelers coming to Door County. BabyQuip connects with local residents to form the country’s largest baby gear rental service with everything from cribs, booster seats, and other items too cumbersome to pack for a visit to the area. Carrie Tjernagel and her cousin Renee Sauer are the local baby concierges for Door County, handling the delivery, set-up, and pick-up for the items. Tjernagel says it is a trend that is picking up nationally.
Services catering to parents with young kids like BabyQuip could grow even more popular as millennial families are touring places together in record numbers according to the Family Travel Association.
