So I saw a post about a baby shower in another group.

Someone said they used a friends car seat.

Would you ever use a used car seat? Even if you know the person well and hasnt been in any car accidents???

Im anal and am refusing to use used car seats. There are a bunch going around on my yard sale


groups. But I just dont know about used car seats

I would NEVER use a used car seat. My son's infant seat that we used with dd is still within expiration date, but it's been stored in extreme heat/cold temperatures in storage since April 2012 so we won't be using it.

 I'd use it but I'm a bit of a hippie when it comes to stuff like that. I don't mind using people's stuff. I'm using a friend's old breast pump for god sakes lol. Whatever I can do to save money and I just don't feel like its a super big deal. Most of the stuff people give away is barely used. The less stuff we have to buy, the better! :)

Yeah.

I dont like to buy used unless from my cousin. She keeps her clothes perfect.

But I dont want to buy anything else used.

I mean I bought some used bottles but I can soak them in bleach.

But any equpiment I wont buy used.

where I live it is illegal to sell or give away car seats (as of jan 2011)  that were manufatured before jan 2011. (so at mid night they had to restock everything.. you can still use the car seats bought before then until the expired date, you just cant sell or give them away.

I honestly just wouldn't. There are too many things that people can do wrong without even knowing is wrong, that damages the integrity of the plastic or fabric the seat is made of.

Yup.

Plus the way people swing the carseats back and forth
