Always welcoming Feedback & Experience sharing

We wanted to thank you for providing us with such a private and unique experience. It was a gift to have this little boy in our home. We named him Sly. I enjoyed rocking him. Being a young wife with little experience with babies it took a while to get the hang of things. It broke my heart to give him back so soon since he became the cute guest at the table. I really do think that every couple needs to jump into this project before having a baby. It was very stressful for us as a couple at the beginning (nobody wanted to get up at night to care for the baby LOL lots of begging for sleep).. Sincerely, The Klawikowski's

This was an EXCELLENT Program for our Montessori School students!!! Extremely cost effective and technical support was kind to all of our families. Keep up the good work. We're already booked for next year :) Thank you so much.. Katherine Young of The Montessori School

Our autistic daughter is incredibly thankful for the opportunity to become a mom (even if only for a few days). It was a heartfelt project which was excellent for her to experience the difficulties of parenting. Although our daughter is generally a very low spectrum reactive personality, we saw her light up for the first time in many years. God Bless this fantastic short term parenting program!

My pregnancy and our new baby was going to be rough on our 4 year old until we rented this training baby, which was delivered to our front door. Our son was wicked when he saw the baby and immediately jealous beyond belief. I even caught him slapping the fake baby in the face while leaving the room to get the baby bottle. I was out of my mind and couldn't believe that my sweet loving child would be so mean to an infant. We were sad and scared by his actions toward this baby. He couldn't even stand to look at him. We extended our rental in hopes of better sibling introduction (therapy) for our son. It took 8 days before he was was interested in what the baby was doing. He eventually started to sit with us while we were feeding or burping the baby. He wanted no parts of being around for the diaper changing, not sure why since the baby doesn't mess in it's diaper. Our son potty trained young so maybe he's just not a fan of diapers. I guess you've heard it all but we're all very appreciative and can now look forward to the birth of our second child. This was much more needed than we knew.. Felicia, Vance, and Josh

Well, we shipped our baby girl back today and we took a 4 hour nap. YAY! I can't begin to express our sincere thanks for allowing us this opportunity. We decided on day 5 of our rental that there was no way that we were ready to become parents. We had felt pressured by our ages (28 and 30) to start a family. We need to make SERIOUS adjustments to our lives in the next couple of years to become the best parents we can be. We enjoyed the experience although exhausting for a week of our lives. We even went the extra mile of learning about babyproofing and visited daycares to see which ones accept newborns and which ones were good and sadly very, very, expensive. Everyone we met on our journeys with our baby told us what a great idea for us to do the project, which we had already figured out for ourselves. We look forward to hearing back from your office with our project results. Again, great thanks to you all. Rob & Leah, Go Big or Go Home Huffington!

Wow! We hadn't a clue how life was going to change when our teen daughter was going to have her baby under our roof. With the baby now returned we've taken a couple of weeks for a deep breath. We imagined that the brunt of the work could actually be on her, but we quickly learned that we were going to be in the thick of it as well. While our 16 year old pregnant daughter cared for her baby simulator she went through extremes every single day. So happy we did a 20 day rental! She went from angry, to sobbing, to ignoring the baby, to finally acting like a mother after two weeks. We were so upset and stressed out and then finally relieved when she finally got herself together. WE DID NOT HELP! We did offer emotional support since she was falling apart many of the first several days. We completed the Baby's First Year of Expenses worksheet that was provided and our daughter once again went into a severe depression that lasted about 3 days. She truly had no idea what this child was going to cost her and the financial assistance that she could get would only cover about 20% of the expenses for the babies first year. WE WILL NOT PAY for these expenses! She deliberately got pregnant to Keep Her Boyfriend! Wrong!! He broke up with her the day she told him she was pregnant. We had no idea that our straight A student was having sex, no signs, no mention, no warning at all. This ex-boyfriend of hers is only 14years old. His parents are claiming ignorant and say to provide them with DNA results before they have to help, and only if the courts force them. Our family will be in chaos for a minimum of 2 years, as we've been advised by a family counselor. Without this program we will have surely struggled far worse during the first couple months than we expect to now. She now has a full understanding of what she needs to do for this baby. After we returned the baby our daughter signed up for and started a course at the local tech trade school to help obtain a good paying job. With the terribly bad came an optimistic future. We had no hopes of a bright future for her a month ago. Thank you! Jessica & Joseph Mitchell

Thank you for helping our autistic child experience the joys and the ups and downs of parenting. Even at 20 years old, he really had a hard time with the focus and attention required of the baby. We are grateful for your company. Liz Franklin

Thank you! My hubby & I are so excited for our twins to come!! Our 20 day rental was the best learning experience of our lives. We took our little rental babies with us everywhere. What a great training for new to be parents. My husband was a total wreck every time the babies cried. It's such a good thing that these were fake babies instead of the real thing. Our overall score that we received back from your office was fair since we had no idea how to take care of the 2 babies and we're expecting in 5 months. We can't thank you enough for this dry-run parenting. Mistakes that we won't need to make with our twins when they come home. We will recommend this program to all of our friends and family. God Bless those little practice babies! Carrie, Pete, and our future twins Jacob & Emily

I had no plans for getting pregnant but my parents rented me one of these babies. They were trying to teach me how hard it is to be a teen parent. I was really mean to them when they rented it for me because I'm not even sexually active or even have a boyfriend. I felt like it was a punishment that I didn't deserve. But I do have a best friend who had a baby about 3 months ago. The first thing I'd like to say is OMG! These things are so exhausting. I thought it was gonna be no big deal since my mom only rented it for 4 days. I barely survived the first 24 hours. If this doesn't make teens not end up pregnant they're crazy. At the end as I was packing the baby up to ship back I was feeling whacked from no sleep. I'm not ready for a baby but thanks for the experience. I respect what you all do by renting these to people. No one would have any idea until they actually did the project. I know I didn't.. Madison, Sacramento CA
