Ten Ways to Save Big on Baby Gear

When it comes to buying baby products, there’s a lot to choose from–and there’s a lot of stuff you can live without. Here’s how to get high-quality, safe baby gear without spending a bundle.

Get more mileage from your baby registry

Friends and relatives want to give you gifts, so take advantage. But before you add a product to your registry, make sure it’s right for you and your lifestyle. Test-drive products in the store and take your baby registry as seriously as if you were paying the tab yourself. Register for big-ticket items like a stroller, car seat and crib. Who knows? Friends and relatives may go in as a group and buy them for you.

Don’t forget to register for everyday items, such as diapers in all sizes except for newborn, and baby wipes. You’ll need those items for years to come. Babies will outgrow newborn diapers in a flash, so it doesn’t pay to register for that size. And don’t register for clothes. You’ll get those anyway as baby gifts.
