Most Heartwarming Order: One time a family coming to the OC all the way from Norway to have their twins (boy and girl) via surrogate right here in Mission Viejo contacted Blair. She was so thrilled they chose her to be a part of their journey into parenthood that she brought them flowers when she delivered and set up their items as they anxiously awaited the arrival of their babies.
Funniest Delivery Experience: One time Blair’s husband went to pick up one of her orders and a female renter answered the door in a towel!
Biggest Surprise: Blair’s biggest spontaneous on-the-job surprise happened last September. She had to go fix a flat tire on a client’s BOB Stroller and ended up going into labor and having her son that night! In her general Trusted Partner experience, Blair has been most surprised by just how excited people are to find out they can actually rent stuff and not have to buy it or pack it. She gets to meet all kinds of really nice folks and finds it so fun to help make their stay in Orange County easier.
Only a Car With a HUGE Trunk Will Suffice for Blair’s Biggest Orders
As a Babierge Trusted Partner in Orange County, CA, Blair services Disneyland visitors as well as parents and families staying in the OC and its many beautiful beach towns – Laguna Beach, Dana Point, Newport Beach, and San Juan Capistrano to name a few. She loves helping out grandparents who are hosting grandchildren and need baby gear, but don’t want to be stuck with bulky items collecting dust when the kiddos leave. Blair takes great satisfaction in cruising around Orange County helping families and grandparents out. She drops off baby equipment at all sorts of places like airports, hotels, private homes, restaurants, beaches and more! Families can also arrange to pick up gear on their own. Whatever the situation, Blair can fit it into her busy schedule.
Blair’s story in her own words:
After having my daughter I decided to leave a stressful full-time job as Project Manager of a Global Events team. I was able focus on my family and my passion for teaching prenatal yoga while also working on remodeling our home. Once the house project was wrapped up I realized I still had a huge desire to exercise my business mind – I was looking for a position that was just the right fit and would allow me to spend as much time with my daughter as possible.

Around that time I reconnected with an old friend in Chicago who had recently joined Babierge and told me how much fun she was having helping out traveling families. I myself could relate to the herculean task of traveling with children – I knew just how much of a grind it was, how by the time you were at your destination you were completely exhausted just from lugging your gear through the airport, not to mention the times we wound up with a vanished car seat, broken strollers, or that soaking wet car seat… You don’t want to know.
Thus began my mission to help families visiting Orange County have easier, more enjoyable experiences. I especially love helping first time baby travelers and local families prepare for little ones to visit. It’s so fun getting to deliver BOB Strollers and beach toy packages because I know a family will now enjoy the best aspects of OC living as they take long walks around our neighborhoods, and play in the luxurious sand on our beautiful beaches.
