    Baby friendly Paris blog:

    "I was extremely happy with your service! I am from New York (and live in berlin) and i cant find a service there that matches your quality! I came across Babytems in a google search and i was so happy I did! My previous trips to other cities with my infant son had been difficult because I had problems finding and getting the equipment I needed so I had to borrow/buy a lot of things. Camile and her company were a lifesaver. My husband, baby and I had such an enjoyable, stress free trip that we cant wait to visit Paris again. In fact, my son LOVED his sleepsack so much that I had to go out and buy a similar one for him to bring home with us" (AZ, Sep 2011)
