I’ve started checking Craigslist almost every day for certain baby items, and some of the deals out there are too good to pass up. Last week I bought a new, in-the-package, unfortunately named “My Brest Friend” breastfeeding pillow for $18 (usually retails ~$40).
I started scoping out some deals on Medela breast pumps, but I’m a little nervous to pull the trigger on a [very reasonably priced and good-condition, sanitized] used pump just because I’ve read that you’re not supposed to buy a used pump, period. For safety reasons. But what I don’t understand is how it’s OK to rent one from a hospital? Anyone have thoughts on this? By buying used, I could potentially save $200+.
I did find a decent-looking running stroller for $25 on Craiglist and am waiting to hear back from the seller. I don’t see how that could be a bad purchase. The risk of it sucking is worth $25.
But my mom found the best deal of all. A great-condition Baby Bjorn for $0. That’s right, free. From a garage sale where they were apparently giving things away.
I gave it a test drive last night with Basil. She wasn’t too into it.
