  • Yes it's crazy! Check out places like Once Upon a Child. You have find really nice stuff, sometimes even new for far less! We have started going there more often now... AND when you are done with it, you can bring it back and get part of your money back for them to sell it again as long as you keep it in good condition!

  • Yes, baby stuff is expensive. Check out local kids consignment shops, they have a lot of gently used items. Also, I used a moby wrap, which I am in love with. It retails new for $40.
