We are trying to find baby items that wont take up alot of space because we are trying for our second baby. I found a great crib on craigslist, it is a crib with a changingtable/dresser attached. It didnt take up much more room than a crib but have 5 dresser drawers and 3 storage spaces. We looked on walmart and they run about $400, but the lady on craigslist was selling hers for $200 (in exelent condition and she is in OUR TOWN!!!) but DH has this fear of buying "used" items...he says our kids need new. WTH??? How can I convice in that this is a good deal, and that the baby does need new every thing??Answer Question

I agree, bribe him with the left over money for something for himself that way everyone is happy.. you get the stuff you need, he doesn't feel left out or neglected etc.No child needs new when it comes to a crib. I could understand used stuffed animals or things that are hard to sanitize or used breast pumps etc.. but it's a piece of furniture. Get a new mattress and it's the same thing.Heck we even got a used mattress and got an extra plastic cover for it (it was already covered in plastic by manufacturer).

I would have to agree NOT buying used on cribs, mattresses and car seats.
