Do you all get offers for old used baby items left and right? MIL has been trying to give me DH's stuff from when he is a baby. I think she thinks I'm a safety freak because I always tell her a reason I can't use them. She's offered his carseat (31 years old now) and his crib. I told her those aren't safe to use now. I need a better way to phrase that though. Any ideas? She also said she was going to get her co-workers old carseat to use in her car. Her co-worker has a 5 year old and 8 year old, so I said we would have to check the expiration date. I didn't mean to offend her though. Do you ladies think I'm being too careful with these safety regulations?
They also offered DH's changing table. I said no only because we rent and move every 2 years, I want one piece of furniture that I can use as a dresser/changing table and that he can use when he's older. So I'm looking at something from ikea.
They also gave me DH's crib mobile, which I will probably use, but its a super 70's plush rainbow thing. Not my style, but I feel bad for saying no to everything.
I am, however, excited about some hand me down baby clothes from a friend though. Now that I can use!
