Where to buy SECOND HAND CLOTHES AND EQUIPMENT for kids?

Postby barus » Tue Sep 07, 2021 12:42 pm

Hi All,

I am a new mom and looking for second hand baby clothes and potentially even equipment like pram, carrier, baby batch etc. Could you please recommend regular shops / charity shops / websites / any other platform to buy second hand clothes and gadgets for the baby? 

Thank you,
Barbara

Ima first time mummy to a 7 week old boy.

We bought most our stuff from:

babybundle (dot) uk (dot) com (it won’t let me post the website link) Has some amazing bits and it’s all second hand. They grow out of clothes so quickly so we did 80% from here. As you can buy bundles of great quality clothes quite cheaply. They also have great baby accessories like baby carriers etc

Ebay - again great for some lovely secondhand high end clothing bits at bargain prices, as well as accessories for babies room

Amazon - very convenient and sometimes they have great deals

The app next door in the find section - great for finding second hand Baby Bjorn bouncers, clothes, changing stations etc

Facebook market place

For clothes
John Lewis online / Newbie on Northcote Road / more high end shops - jojo mama bebe, Jules, Mori, White and company

Peter jones Sloane sq - great for looking at prams but not the biggest selection. I heard white city mama papa / John Lewis is the best place to go pram shopping as they have every model

Cot - can take up to 3 months to arrive. Due to brexit and covid took ours 5 months. We bought it from Silvercross. It’s nice, but personally feel like it’s over priced for what it was. Due the pandemic the shops were closed so we couldn’t look at cots in person - definitely recommend you do.

Happiest baby Snoo - this is a wildcard… we have one and it’s very expensive, but it’s the best investment we made and if we had to pick our one item we can’t live without its this. It’s a cot from 0-6 months. It does white noise, rocks then to sleep, and swaddles mimicking the womb. They have a30’ fat free trial policy too.
My experience has been that From 5 weeks Baby sleeps from 8pm - 6am and only wakes for a feed and nappy changing and goes straight back to sleep. We didn’t use it day 1-17 and we were getting two hours a night. As soon as we started using it we were on 4 hours a night. At 7 weeks I’m on 6 weeks. Everyone else in my antenatal class is still on 3/4 hours a night. Again expensive but I got mine second hand on eBay, brand new for 60% of the price. They often do sales at 30% off on the website too.

Nursing / maternity bras - new look and seraphine are great and seraphine often have sales

IKEA - if you want basic furniture - I got a cheap changing unit for our room from here

There are quite a few marketplace apps and websites where you buy secondhand clothes but I highly recommend an app called YoungPlanet. It is completely free to use and people give away things their kids have grown out of or don’t use anymore. I’ve seen clothes, baths, cots, slings, toys, sterilisers and so much else being given away on there. If a listing is not local to you, you can pay for postage.

FARA Kids in Southfields should be your first port of call.
Virtually new baby/child equipment and clothes, all in great condition. They get heaps of donations from Wandsworth and Wimbledon.

Hi there, I occasionally see things being given away for free on the Olio app, so that might be worth exploring in addition to all the other resources here :)
