Baby Chic NY rents high-end necessities for traveling families, offering everything from cribs and car seats to toys and a concierge service. Owner Tiffany Cohen has a background in the fashion industry, having worked with such popular designers as Donald J. Pliner. As a mom of three as well, Tiffany knows first-hand the challenges of traveling with tots, and launched Baby Chic NY in 2009. Tiffany recently spoke with Celebrity Baby Trends to explain how her service works and to share some breaking news.
CBT: What is Baby Chic NY?
Tiffany: Baby Chic NY is a fleet of top of the line baby gear for rent. We have everything from strollers, cribs and car seats to bins of toys. We also have a baby concierge service and we accommodate people who are traveling by having diapers, wipes, formula, etc., waiting for them at their hotel. I am very particular about the items I carry, and sanitation and cleanliness are extremely important to me. I would never rent out something that I would not put my own child in.
CBT: Where do you service?
Tiffany: You are the first to know that we are just now expanding to Los Angeles and the surrounding area. This is very exciting for us. We also serve the New York area and some parts of New Jersey and Connecticut. We recently began serving the Hamptons, and that was exciting as well.
CBT: Why did you launch your company?
Tiffany: We started out as a storefront, a high-end consignment store. People constantly came in looking for things for a certain amount of time because guests were visiting. I kept getting asked if we rented gear. Suddenly, a light bulb went off and I knew there was a huge market for top quality rental gear for babies. It helps people so much to have quality gear waiting for their children when they arrive in a new place. Our service gives traveling parents less to worry about.
CBT: How does it work?
Tiffany: Many of our customers visit our website and order online. We make it very easy, and we deliver and pick up our gear. A few of our customers come to our Bayside Queens office to pick up and drop off the rentals. We have daily, weekly and monthly rental options. We invite people who have questions to call us and we will help them out!
I enjoyed interviewing Tiffany Cohen of Baby Chic NY and I think this service is essential for today’s mobile families.
