Babies don’t come cheap! All of the paraphernalia that comes with making sure your little one is fed, clothed, and safe can make a dent in your bank account…

Thankfully there are loads of budget-conscious moms out there who love to find a good bargain. We’ve identified some great ways for you to shop for quality second hand baby items. And once you and your little one are done with them, you can resell them on several online platforms.

You can buy AND sell online

Babies grow so quickly, and if you’re not planning on adding to your family, why not sell that baby bath, bottle warmer, and compactum to another mom?

You’ll be able to use the cash to invest into the next phase of baby items, and you’ll be helping out another mom at the same time. You can also use the cash for some much-needed mom pampering! Bring on that back, neck, and shoulder massage!
