Used Cribs Baby cribs can be very expensive depending on the model that you are looking at. Since the baby will only use it for a year or two it may not be worth it to invest in. Some people just can’t afford that expense so they look for used cribs. You want to make sure you are getting something very safe. Older models of cribs may have lead paint on them that is harmful to children. Check that the spacing between the slats isn’t going to be a risk for them either. Not all used cribs out there though are old so don’t let that discourage you. Many parents want to get rid of them after their child moves into a toddler bed. This may be their last baby or they don’t have any place to store it. You can get a used crib that is in excellent condition from yard sales, consignment stores, and second hand shops. You can also look in the newspaper for such items for sale. Chances are you may have a friend or family member with a used crib in storage that they will give to you, lend to you, or sale to you. This can be a great way to get the crib you need for a price you can afford. It is a good idea to go online and look at the safety rating for any used crib. This way you can find out if it is right for your baby. Register online for information to be sent to you about any recalls for that product as well. It is a good idea to look at used cribs early in the pregnancy. This way if you discover any parts are missing you can contact the manufacturer to get them before your baby arrives. You will also have time to sand down the used crib and paint it if you want to. Being prepared for the baby with the crib is important as they will need it as soon as they come home. You may find you need to buy a mattress though when you purchase a used crib. This is because the mattress that was in it can be transferred to the toddler bed for the child. Most parents will be using it. You can buy a new mattress for the crib though for about $30 so you won’t have to invest very much in it.
