I'm hoping to ttc sometime in the next year, but really it's still up in the air. My dd is a year and a half right now, so she's outgrown most of the "baby stuff". We are storing a walker, jumper, boppy, bouncer, and bouncer/rocking chair currently-plus a couple totes of clothes and misc. Her swing broke, and her crib isn't worth re using. Even though we didn't spend very much if I were to get pregnant right now it would be very hard to replace it all. Plus since I want to get a crib new, and hopefully pay for midwifery care, I won't have as much discrectionary "baby income". However, at the same time I feel like a hoarder. I really try not to store things I'm not sure I'll use again, and we did only buy things at yardsales, or get them as gifts. I've considered loaning things out to a co worker of the hubby's but I'm not for certain since they are just barely pregnant. If I we were to have an oopsie in the next few months they would still be using what we needed when we needed it. If we wait until closer to birth of their child, they may already have everything (and I wouldn't want them to wait to get things "just in case' from us either-that wouldn't be fair). So, long story short-how long did you decide to store things for your next little one? How much time do you think is ideal?
