My husband and I are currently expecting our first child together.
His family has a few baby items left over and are trying to give those items to us. Normally, I would not mind but considering this is our first, I would like to go ahead and buy some of the items new to celebrate the baby. Plus, I know the items they are wanting to give us have been used by multiple other children. I am unsure how safe they are considering they have been through multiple children and I am unsure how clean they are because I know that this specific family member in question is not a very clean person.
Am I wrong for telling dh I do not want to use the items? I told him we could pick them up, but I do not feel comfortable using the items on our child.
Dh said we could pick them up and post them on CL and use the money to buy stuff we want for our child but I do not know if I would feel comfortable letting another person use these items on their children. He said to post on the ad that these items are used by various children and need to be cleaned. That way the person can make an informed decision.
ETA: CL was dh's idea. Also, we have the funds to buy for our child but the family member in question is trying to get rid of the baby items so their daughter does not try and get pregnant again. Again, these items have been used for over 3 years by at least 2 other children NOT including this family member's child.
So that is 3 kids in 3 years. I am NOT comfortable with that for safety and cleanliness reasons.
