Visiting Portland: where to rent a babycarrier?

This is a unique question.  Let's help Eric and his visiting family find accomdoations for his time here:

My family will be visiting Oregon next month for the first time.  We have two kids, 3 and 6 years old.  Do you know of any place which rents babycarriers in Portland?  We plan to do a little hiking at Mt. St. Helens and the gorge.

I recommend just asking to borrow from someone - either on freecycle or craigslist.

I wonder if REI rents Kelty framepack carriers?

Otherwise, there are two baby equipment rental places that I know of (but have no experience with): www.rent4baby.com and www.jibbajib.com - worth checking with them to see if they rent backpacks/carriers.

Delicious Baby also recommended Babies On the Go rentals here in Portland: http://www.rent4baby.com/

Here is also a link to the Delicious Baby information about kid-friendly Portland:

Have a fun trip!

I would recommend ust buying a used one at any of the dozens of used baby equipment places in town. In SE there is Piccolina on 26th? and Clinton or the Children's Exchange on division and 30th?. I cannot imagine it would be cheaper to rent one and then you can pass it along or resell it when you leave. Good Luck!

Thanks for the mention Melanie!

We just went down to Portland for 4th of July weekend & had a wonderful time. I'm blogging about it for the next couple of days on http://www.deliciousbaby.com

Many women never go back to bikinis after babes, what with loose skin, stretch marks, mummy tummys and the like, and that's always been a symbolic
