    Baby clothes Babies grow fast, and during the first 6 months, may not even wear a clothing item more than a couple of times. This is true for baby shoes too as sometimes parents end up spending a lot on booties which the infant may outgrow before they even learn how to walk! But make sure all buttons, zips and clasps are secure and all stitches are in place.

    Cribs These tend to be used very little. A lot of the times, the baby ends up sleeping with the parents, especially when being nursed. So while a new crib usually costs upwards of Rs 8,000 (solid wooden cribs), you can get a second-hand one for a fraction of that amount, after ensuring that it’s not too old and has been sterilised, of course.

    High chair Few babies actually agree to sit on a high chair, and most Indian mums still feed their kids on their laps. But, if you would like your child to start eating independently, you can get a pre-owned high chair. Just make sure that it has proper support and harness to prevent the child from getting out.

    Car seats There is a lot of debate about whether it’s safe to buy second-hand car seats or not. However, provided that the seat has not been involved in any accident, and all buckles, clasps and belts are in place and safety standards are being maintained, I really don’t see any harm in buying them.

    Toys Provided there is no wear and tear, and they are not missing any parts, toys are best bought second-hand. Kids tend to outgrow them fast, and most prefer a variety. So it doesn’t make sense to invest in an expensive toy, when your child will most likely ignore it after the third day.

Pre-Used Things You Can Buy For Your Baby – Part 1

So many parents dismiss the idea of buying pre-used baby stuff because it “feels wrong”. Even if you can afford brand new stuff, think about the favour you'll be doing to the environment by not adding to the clutter

The arrival of a baby usually means going on a shopping overdrive, and we often end up paying astronomical prices for things we might use only a few times. We not only end up spending a lot but also contribute to the clutter around us. We can economise by buying pre-used products that are in excellent condition and have been sterilised before sale.
