I don't know,if,you have these places around you but here is some places I have or my sister has gone: Burlington coat factory, once upon a child (they sell lightly used stuff for really cheap) I got a bunch of clothes there with the tags on them that said 20 or $25 and only spent $3 or $4 they also,have lightly used furniture and such, kholes has a lot of cute nice baby things, and most of the bigger stores in malls such as macys or jcpenny should sell baby stuff like that but idk I haven't gone there.
I don't need clothes or anything like that. I just need a bassinet, diaper bag, and infant car seat/carrier
All those places have stuff like that I got a super cute diaper bag from khols (idk how to spell it with or without the "e" lol) and my mother in law got a crib with matching changing table, bassinet, and a swing for me at Burlington coat factory for a really good price and they are all the big brands you get at babies r us. The only thing I don't know about is the car seat I have one that my sister never used (brand new in the box, score!) and I registered for another one with a matching stroller at babies r us.
Im not from the US but my auntie sent me a whole box of gifts from carters? It was so cute i want one in the UK!
We shopped online for alot of our big items. There are some really cute things on amazon.com :)
BURLINGTON!!! I'm in love with this store it has some amazing deals
I'm sorry, I'm not answering you question here but I just wanted to say that maybe you should think twice about getting a bassinet... I actually had 2 different ones (gifts) and honestly, my kids never slept in them. I think it was because the pad on the bottom is so so thin that the bassinet just isn't comfortable. I ended up using a playpen with an extra matress than I bought separate from the playpen.
Just a thought. .
If the bassinet isn't comfortable with the mattress you can always try to put a blanket folded as big as the mattress and put it on top of the mattress so baby is comfy.
And Burlington is good also, I've seen cute stuff there.
I definitely want a bassinet. I've already looked all over Amazon. I don't think there's a Burlington where I'm from.
U can shop Burlington online :)
