i would think really anything is ok. binkies i wouldnt trust nor any thing you can not wash. SOme babies can spread thrush though things like binkies, but its easily treated. Most of my kids things but binkies are used from us or others. cloth diapers i would too count as not to get used. i have issues with used underwear, thats one thing that shouldnt be shared. just use common sence

Buy: clothes, blankets, toys, crib/bassinet (if manufactured in the last 5 yrs), stroller. Don't buy: carseat.

Agree'd. no bottles either! my baby has thrush and her dr said to toss them after even if u sterilize them cause it's so easily spread.

 I agree with pp as well. Get things like clothing, blankets and things that can be easily washed or bleached.

No carseats, bottles, pacifiers or drop side cribs. Clothing, blankets, crib sheets, towels and toys should all be okay. Have fun!

I intend to buy used items also but not a mattress, that I intend to get new and organic and letting it air out for a few months.  I will not use a used carseat and good to know about binkies.

You can try a thrift store too..I went last week and you'd be amazed at the clothes you can get for like a buck. Most of them still had the original tags on them too!

Be careful of anything cloth as Bed Bugs are rampant right now, and as always, lice is a concern.  Personally, I would not buy anything used except all plastic bouncer/exercaucers, and all plastic toys that I could spray down/soak with cleaner.  But I'm really anxious about safety, 1st pregnancy for me.  :P

no mattress..... bed bugs lol. never know.

no pacifiers. 

This would be my list too.  Things we DID buy used:
