Did you have a bunch of friends and family try to get rid of their old baby gear by giving it to you? How did you politely reject their offers?
My grandma recently tried to get me to take her attic full of old baby gear. From some people, I might think this was meant as a helpful gesture so we wouldn't have to buy so much ourselves, but she even said that she just wanted to get rid of it because it takes up so much room. Some of the stuff was MY baby gear, that I used almost 30 years ago (and then all my cousins used it after me), and it certainly doesn't meet current safety standards. I pointed that out to her, and she said "Oh please- you kids are all perfectly fine now, so it's obviously not that dangerous!"
