Budget Friendly Baby Gear

Just because you’re having a baby doesn’t mean you have to spend hundreds of dollars on baby gear. There are a lot of really great high quality baby items that are are not only affordable but also super cute. I recently shared my Ultimate Baby Registry list where you can find a detailed list of everything you might possibly need when you’re expecting a new little one. I tried to keep most of the items on that list reasonably priced but eventually all those “reasonably priced” items add up. So for this list, I wanted to share some very economical baby items for those of us on a tight budget.
The most expensive thing on this list is $109 (crib) and everything else is less than $75. I know there are probably cheaper options but I wanted to make sure all of the products were high quality items. All of the items listed here have a large number of positive reviews on Amazon. I love the Amazon Baby Registry because you see hundreds of reviews on products from other parents.
PLUS you get a 15% discount when you buy any of the items from your registry. The Amazon Baby Registry has the largest selection of baby items, easy 90-day returns and extra benefits if you are a prime member.
