hello everyone!  can anyone reccommend some items that are ok to buy used and some that are better new?  I'm esp. wondering about a co sleeper, jogging stroller, baby swing, and bouncer, but any advice on the subject is so appreciated!


thank you!!

Expecting my baby girl Charlee on 7-21-12!  Love and Light to all the mamas out there!

If you can find them used in decent shape, get them~! :)  The only thing I absolutely would not buy used is a baby carseat.  You never know if they have been properly cared for, etc.  With the other items, as long as they are in good working order, I would absolutely buy them. :)

I wouldn't buy a car seat or a swing used. The car seat for safely issues and the swing because so many people use them beyond their weight recommendations and its bad on the motors. I bought 2 used before I finally got one new because my oldest was so colicky it was the only thing I could put her in to do anything (otherwise I had to carry her everywhere!).
