Would you buy used baby stuff off ebay?

In order to save some money?

  • Not but I did take free items for my son when he was a baby from our local Freecycle

  • I would try yard sales and resale stores. I really can't forsee you saving money with having to pay shipping on those items (unless it is clothes). I would NOT buy a used car seat though.

  • Sure, if you could tell it was in good condition and the shipping costs weren't sky high. The only things I insisted on new were a crib mattress and a car seat.

  • Yes absolutely & I have many times. Clothes, Toys, etc. I actually buy A LOT of clothes for my kids on ebay. Used & new. Just watch what they are charging for shipping. I bought my Strollers on Amazon because they offer Free Shipping. Sometimes what people charge on shipping something used like a stroller on ebay, you can get a new one for less.

  • clothes, sling, blankies, etc lots of stuff like that of course
    nothing big or heavy, not worth it shipping wise
