    I got rid of quite a bit... I didn't like DS's swing, so I sold it. His bouncer broke, so that went. I didn't like our feeding chair, so I've bought a new one for this baby.

    I got rid of everything I didn't like or didn't use - the nappy wrapper is a prime example. I am also switching to different bottles this time. I do have the luxury of being able to afford this stuff, but I could very well have made do with everything I had before.

    I kept everything, as long as you have room to store it. My son wore lots of left over pink (at least around the house), but the clothes were in good condition so I don't see why not.

    And if your mattress is in good condition, eg always had a protector on it and still firm, I see no reason to buy a new one for baby number two. it's not like they use it for more than a couple of years.

    Actually I was wondering why do have to have a new mattress for a new bub. Should I throw away the dummies?

    P.s I don't really have finance issues (at least not yet). I'm just the type that tries to make uses of things where ever possible.

    I would throw away dummies but you could just sterilize them if you wish..

    SIDS recommend a new mattress for each baby.

    If you look at the SIDS and kids website, I think they say as long as the mattress is in good condition it's fine to use again.

    I heard car seat have an expiry date. Apparently they should not be kept longer then 7 years or is it 5? Not sure but might be worth looking into it.

    I would also get new teats and dummies. And a new matteress.

    We are keeping everything that we used and isn't broken or soiled!

    Edit: already asked and answered!

    Current guidelines for carseats are at 10 years they need to be replaced. Obviously sooner if they're in an accident - even if it doesn't LOOK like there's any damage to it.

    Yep car seat 10 years! They should have a sticker with the manufacture date but they all have it imprinted somewhere under the seat.
    I also believe if emergency services are called to a crash and there are child restraints they will cut the harness so it can no longer be used? Can anyone confirm this??

    If you are interested, the SIDS website states that:

    There is no evidence to show that there is an increased risk of SIDS for babies who sleep on a second hand mattress providing that baby… Sleeps on a flat, firm, clean, well fitting mattress that is in good condition.
