If you are looking to save money while also being eco-conscious when purchasing baby gear, buying used is the best option. There are several great websites currently available that offer huge selections of various baby items in gently used condition at reduced prices. Of course you can always check out Ebay, Craigslist, or local consignment shops as well but the sites below are good options as they are specifically focused on baby.

1. Storkbrokers: This site, created by a husband and wife team, is an online marketplace that allows parents to sell their unwanted baby items as well as buy gently used baby gear at up to 70% off. They offer everything you could possibly need for baby from car seats to monitors. All listings are accompanied by photos showing condition of the item as well as a short product description. Shopping is easy with the specific categories for baby gear like “learn & play” or “furniture” or you can just search for a specific product.

2. reCrib: You can both buy and sell high quality baby cribs, strollers, highchairs, furniture, toys, and much more on this site. The site is super easy to use and has categories for top baby gear items. Shop for your needs by brand name, category, distance, or simply type exact product in the search box. Listings each have a photo and detailed description.

3. Trading Cradles: With this site you can both sell and buy baby gear for your little one at up to 60% off retail values. You can be comforted in your purchase knowing that all listings are approved by their parental team. This site makes it simple, fast, and easy to find all the items you need and purchases can even be shipped directly to your doorstep. Shop by category or search for specific items by name.

4. Swap Baby Goods: This website is a place for parents to swap, buy, or sell baby items that are no longer used or wanted. The primary goal of this company is to provide a platform that brings together sellers, buyers, and swappers in an online marketplace that benefits everyone involved. Search for the item you want by name or by a variety of categories.
