Car seat Rental

Car Seat Rentals by Location

Rockabye Baby Rentals has carseat rentals in all our locations. We carry both budget and premium brands of infant carseats, convertible car seats, toddler car seats, and booster seats. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) recommends all children under 12-years of age and under 4’9″ be secured in an approved safety carseat when riding in a vehicle. Current AAP recommendations are to keep children rear facing to a minimum of the age of 2-years, or to the maximum rear facing carseat limits. Forward facing carseats or toddler carseats are appropriate with 5-point harness to the maximum limit of the car seat or approximately 5 to 7 years, before transitioning to booster seat using the vehicle’s seatbelt. Backless boosters should never be used for a child under the age of 4-years. U.S. Laws vary State to State, but carseats are required for children in the United States.

Rockabye is a full time, year-round local business in each of our destinations. We are registered with the local tax authorities and health departments, carry insurance, and our staff is fully background checked.

There are no actual “Nationwide” Baby Rental Companies in the U.S. There are a few that claim to be. The problem is these entities simply take your order, then subcontract the order to someone else in your destination. Brokers, side-hustles and gig services have never seen the equipment you will receive. These sites have no clue how the equipment is stored, cleaned or maintained. Not to mention that often have never met the person they are sending to deliver your items.

When staying at a hotel, consider speaking to the Concierge for recommendations for renting car seats and boosters. The concierge is a fantastic free resource for car seat rental. While we hope you will choose Rockabye Baby Rentals for your needs in our Locations. When planning a trip outside our service areas, keep in mind that we maintain a list of Independent Baby Rental Companies throughout the U.S. and are more than happy to refer you to a company in other markets.

How to select the correct carseat

For carseat rentals, keep in mind that seats are not measured by a child’s age. The important factors are a child’s weight and height to determine the correct car seat rental. Carseat rentals are available in all styles, meaning infant, convertible, toddler and booster. Know the style of carseat your child requires. The American Academy of Pediatricians recommends children remain rear facing until 2-years of age or longer. Rear facing is the safest position for children. Be aware that all carseats sold in the USA undergo the same safety testing, thus all carseats are safe provided they are installed correctly and are in good condition.
