Is Your Baby Gear Still Safe? Babies R Us Great Trade In Event
This post brought to you by Babies ‘R Us. All opinions are my own.
Purchasing baby gear can be a stressful time for parents, new or old to the parenting game. Having appropriate gear (car seats, strollers, etc) for your children is essential. This includes finding items that fit your child’s height/weight, making sure they are not expired (did you know items like car seats expire?!) as well as learning how to properly install and use these items… it’s enough to make a person’s head spin.

As a repeat parent I have played the “let’s try to re-use” it game. Some items, like clothing, can easily be used safely for a second child. Items like car seats are where I draw the line with my family. Plastics have a shelf life and I know from first hand experience my children are not kind to their car seats, or any of their equipment for that matter. Purchasing a new seat is a small investment that will protect my child, especially in the slippery winter months when things like black ice can surprise you.

Now during the “R”Us stores Great Trade-In event, purchasing new equipment isn’t so taxing on the wallet. The timing of this event is great, because the first ever ROLL OVER TESTED car seat is now on the market!

  2. Sandy Weinstein says

    nice car seat. i wish they made car seats like this for pets, that were very safe. i have always thought abt how to design one for dogs. strange how car seats are declared safe 1 yr and then the next the same seat is declared unsafe.

  3. Sarah L says

    Wish they’d had something like this 40 years ago. Very handy.

  4. A trade in event would be fabulous for growing families and could really help cut costs as children grow. Way to go BRU!
