  • I would keep them just in case. I went thru 3 bouncers before I found one that she liked to sit in. Then you can ebay the one she doesn't like.

  • I agree with Jademom. But, you can also try selling it on Craigslist.com.

  • Craigslist it if you need the money, or if you are feeling generous you could always donate it.

  • Take everything back. Start with Babies R Us. They'll probably take it all. You can get diapers there, or just hold on to your store credit, you're going to need things! I was a HUGE returner! It's fun because you can get what you need.

  • I'd see if the store you had your registry at woud take the ones you don't need back, if not once you see which one your baby likes sell the excess on craigslist (not ebay....too many fees and not enough shoppers, you wouldn't get much for it thesedays)

  • If they arent opened you can get store credit at babie r us or walmart if they carry the item. Then you can buy what you want.

  • WalMart will usually take stuff back without a gift receipt, as long as they carry the item. You would get a gift card and not cash, but I imagine there's something you might need from WalMart?

  • For the stuff that I didn't want or had extra of, I went to Babies R Us and added whatever it was to my registry. Then a week or so later I took that stuff back and got store credit.
