What Do You Do with the Car Seats They Grow Out Of?

Hi everyone!

We have twin boys that have graduated from the infant rear-facing car seats to front facing. We have two car seats and FOUR bases that are in good condition and never involved in a wreck. We are 98% sure we don't want any more kids, so now what do we do with the infant seats? I've thought about selling them in a garage sale, but there is so much info about how a parent is "not suppose to buy used car seats b/c you never know if they've been in a wreck" so what do I do with them?


What can I do next?

If you are not looking to sell them and just get rid of them I have given away stuff on Twin Cities Freemarket (here's the link

Hi K.,

I would suggest putting the on craigslist, and I am sure you will be able to sell them quite fast. I know a lot of people that buy carseats and such on www.Craigslist.org

That would be my suggestion!
Good Luck!

Hi K.,
I know "they" say you're not supposed to buy used car seats, but so many people do. Some people just can't afford proper seats if purchased new. So, given that they're buying them up and plenty of other places are selling them, I'd say go ahead and sell yours, and feel good knowing that you can do so a be honest about the fact that they've never been in a crash. Others have already suggested Craigslist, which is almost a sure bet. e-bay is another, or Once Upon a Child. Garage sales are fine, too. Since you have two, they might sell faster because it's harder to find a used "matching" set (either for another set of twins, or to coordinate with other equipment or two cars.) Happy selling!
