What is a used baby item you would not reuse?

My sister in law wants to give me all her stuff.


Answer by  Gertrude (107)

You can probably reuse almost everything passed along to you. You might want to discard or pass along heavily stained clothing and cloth diaperss/covers. I personally wouldn't reuse pacifiers or teethers. Make sure that stuffed animals and toys are very clean and that the toys don't have any broken parts. Also, make sure cribs, carseats, etc. meet recommended safety requirements.

Never reuse a breast pump or anything that goes in the baby's mouth such as bottles and pacifiers. The car seat is another thing you may not want to reuse. If it's older than a year old you may want to research to see if it's recalled. If it's over two years don't use it at all.

You will want to check all items to see if they have been recalled, especially a crib, a swing, a bouncer and toys. Binkies should not be reused and bottles should not be used if the nipple is foggy. Any items should be sanitized since they most likely were in the baby's mouth as some point.

Personally I would not reuse most children's toys because babies put everything in their mouths. It would be weird to sanitize a toy that another child has chewed on and give it to your new baby I would think. Also, I might not reuse a pacifier or use one in the first place. They can cause serious dental issues.

I would be very careful with cribs and carseats, due to safety regulation changes, recalls,and changes in infant transportation laws. I would also be sure to purchase new first aid and baby care items, such as thermometers, nasal bulb syringes, and nail clippers so you don't expose your little one to unneccesary germs or viruses.
