just wondering how people feel about buying "second hand" items for baby? just starting to think about the things that we need and have been having a look on ebay. From an initial look I think we could save aobut 2/3rds the price of items if we bought them second hand off ebay. we are lucky enough to be getting a "barely used" bugaboo pram from my sister, and a cotbed that her little one has slept in about 6 times and has now been replaced with "car bed" obviously we will buy new mattresses and bed linens (we;re not that cheap) but just made me think about other things we want, for example, I really want a Mama and Papas baby swing, only lasts 6 months and new is about £100, ebay used in excellent condition £30 Moses basket, don't think we will use it much/for long so don't really want to spend a fortune, a nice one on ebay again excellent condition is aobut £20-£30 as opposed to £60-£90 online. defiantely will buy a NEW car seat for obvious safety reasons, and not sure what else we would consider buying second hand, but even things like "bumbos" are about £10-£15 in excellent condition, which ok is only a £15 saving, but a few things like that add up. just not sure how I feel about it, what are your opinions.????
