Being a new single mom is not only an emotional struggle, but it also takes a tremendous toll on your finances as well. To prepare for your new baby’s arrival, you would need to prepare all the items such as bedding, diapers, bottles, clothes, stroller, car seat and a crib. There are several helpful tips to save money on the major purchases such as a crib, car seat and a stroller.
Some new moms prefer a bassinet as it is cozier for the baby and you can use it in every room of your home. However, bassinets are only used for your newborn up to a maximum of 6 months of age and then you would need to use a crib from there onwards up to 2 years old. If you have a tight budget, using the crib from day one would help minimize purchasing multiple baby products. Also, many moms find it helpful to set up the crib in their bedroom for the first 6 months so they can stay close to their new born, especially when feeding times comes around. If you are adamant on using a bassinet, find one that can be detached from a stroller – thus having two functions for the price of one. (E.g. Orbit Bassinet Cradle)
A car seat is essential for your baby when you are transporting by car. Try to find baby products brands that include both the stroller and the car seat for a better deal, such as Safety 1st travel system baby strollers. They are highly rated as the strollers come with full of features for one great price.
There are a lot of designer brand name strollers that would literally cost you a fortune. In the last decade, strollers have been manufactured to cost up to two thousand dollars! With that in mind, a whole new surge of price-competitive stroller manufacturers have come up with “like feature” strollers to compete with these Mercedes strollers you might say. These great value strollers come in competitive prices that provide similar features for the baby passenger and the parent. From double strollers to jogging strollers, these companies have included all the different types of strollers on the market.
“Pre-owned” Baby products
If you’re using a used baby product, it’s important to research the up to date safety standards under ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials). We recommend JPMA Products certified products, and always be on alert for recall baby products (see www.cpsc.gov for updated list).

This is an important reminder to parents to always be aware of where you place your strollers.
In Melbourne, a 15-month old boy survived with minor injuries after being hit by an oncoming train at a railway station. The train driver acted quick enough as he spotted the stroller rolling off the platform and jammed his breaks immediately. He then quickly got out of the train and jump onto the platform to save the baby.
Here’s the video of the incident from Associated Press. (Don’t worry, the video is safe to watch)
