It’s no secret that baby gear can get pretty pricey. You will get some of the necessities at your baby shower but will still have to shell out a considerable amount of money for the rest of it. Luckily, you don’t have to buy everything new. Here are the items that you can buy used, without risking your child’s safety:
 

-Clothes and Shoes

Babies grow so fast that they will only wear clothes for a month or two before they are too small. This means they should still be in good enough condition to pass along. You can also buy coats, hats, and socks used.
 

-Baby Bathtubs

As long as they aren’t moldy or mildewy, baby bathtubs are a great item to buy used. Babies can only fit in it for a few months, so skipping the high cost of a new one is a smart move.
 

-Baby Furniture

With the exception of cribs, most baby furniture is sturdy enough to buy used. Just make sure that there is no paint chipping or missing parts.
 

-Baby Monitors

Baby monitors absolutely do not need to be purchased new. Buy a used one and a pair of fresh batteries and you are good to go.
 

-Toys

As long as there isn’t any paint chipping or missing pieces, toys are fine to buy used. Look out for small pieces and verify that it lead paint was not used on it for maximum safety.
 

-Cloth Diapers

As gross as this may sound, cloth diapers are actually a great item to buy used. If you’re especially squeamish, just give it a few extra washes and buy new inserts.
 
Simply buying these 6 things used will save you hundreds of dollars. As an extra precaution, be sure to check whether or not the item you are considering buying has been recalled. To do so, check out these for recall databases.
