They never stay in them very long. I totally skipped the bassinet and did a pack n play with the infant insert part with both kiddos. Do you have any friends that have kids? Maybe they could let you borrow a pack n play until you can find/afford a cheap crib? Walmart does have some really cheap ones. My daughters is a gorgeous convertible crib. With the crib, mattress, and tax it was under $150.

Hes gonna be six months and we have a basinet but hes starting to try to stand up in it. We had to lower it




Quoting splatz:

Thrift store.  Or check with other good-will things.  Check on-line.  There is this thing = can't remember what it's called, sorry about that!! - where you can get free stuff that people want to give away.  I'm going to KEEP mine, because some day I hope to have grandbabies... BUt lots of people don't have storage space and will give theirs away when they don't need one anymore.

I agree with freecycle or goodwill...also talk to your pregnancy crisis shelters or local churches...if there is a need..they find a way!  Good luck honey!

I would check out goodwill, also once upon a child or other resale shops like that

I agree with checking freecycle and craigslist. However, really check over the crib to make sure that it's safe too. I had thrown out a crib last year because it just wasn't safe anymore and there wasn't anything that could be done to make it safe. I saw a pregnant mom stop to look at it. I informed her that I was throwing it away because it wasn't safe and explained to her what was wrong with it.  After she left I broke it down into even smaller pieces so no one else might think it was a useable crib.
