 What are some baby items that you only want from a certain brand?

Are there some things you will use in any brand?

What are you favorite brands?

Do you buy used things for baby?

This includes clothes, diapers, car seats, bathing products etc

I'm very picky about brand!

I don't buy anything used for my kids.

For my girls, their clothes are Gymboree, Matilda Jane, Njaartjie, Roxy etc.
For my son, I only buy Gymboree, Volcom, GAP Quicksilver etc.
I will buy playclothes from Old Navy or Children's Place, but they would never wear those to school lol.

Car seats, I will use Britax - with the exception of my newborns - they use the First Years True Fit :)

I have bought used clothes for sure! I'm not too picky, but when I buy clothes I buy Carter's brand because they are good quality, I can find them on sale, and I like that I know what size they will be (what I mean is that a 12 month in one brand is different from a 12 month in another brand). Plus their clothes are adorable and you can find them anywhere!

I always use the White Cloud diapers. I have never had any problems with them! I like Old Navy, Gymboree, The Children's Place, Vitamins and Carter's for clothes!

I am not picky about brands for the most part.  I buy Target diapers (2 kids and no problems with them) and a lot of Target clothes (although it's not branded as Target, usually circo).  Many of our clothes have been hand-me-downs from other family members so the brands vary.  When it comes to durable goods, I like to buy brands that will last and are safe.  We have Britax car seats and City select stroller.  The nicer items have good resell, as I recently sold our old BOB stroller for $200.

 I love Target clothes too. Awesome (on selling your stroller)

The only thing I'm picky about is diapers (cloth-Sunbaby/disposable-Kirkland/Huggies) and diaper cream Desitin Max strength.

I am having my fourth son and had gotten rid of everything newborn to 18 months a month before I got pregnant so I bought second hand. My kids aren't too good for hand me downs/used clothes.

Pretty much all of my children's clothes are used and I don't care about the brand name. I care that it's comfortable and in good condition.
Things like strollers, crib, & car seats I originally purchased new but it's been re-used for each child so technically that's now "used" stuff too LOL.
About the only thing I'm strictly name brand about is diapers and the only thing I'd never accept used from someone else is car seats.

I'm not picky, so I usually look for the best price that does the job. I think the only thing I won't get used is a car seat.
