Where do i get help in getting baby items?0 2 months ago by jtarsek
It is Hard to find charities in my area for the items I need. I am on bed rest and I don't have much family to help. We are living off my husbands income and it is difficult. I tried Craigslist and local papers to look for free used baby items. I have joined local barter groups but almost all want money for their items and I can understand that. I have set up 4 registries and posted then to Facebook hopping someone will help but no luck. I am not asking for a lot of items just the essentials. I know where to get formula and diapers but it is just the rest of the items I need. If any one can help or know how to get help I would greatly appreciate it. I am due March 9th 2014 and it is a Boy.
Alpha Family Centers they have you watch videos for fake money even showing up for your appt. you will get the fake money, then you go shopping there for real things like clothes,diaper, cribs, mostly any thing u will need.. you can also try applying for wic they give you food if ur pregnant, then if u are breastfeeding they continue to give it to you, at 6 months you baby will start getting a lot of baby food. if not breastfeeding then they will get you some formula. it's all free you just got to do the shopping
Have you tried any local churches or posting on craigslist?
What are the items that you need?
to be honest I don't think you will find too many "free" baby items. the best I can tell you is to expect to spend some money on baby items, local thrift shops, facebook groups, craigslist, churches, etc are your best bet. sometimes if you go to a church and tell them about your situation they will ask for donations from members to help out. I wish you the best of luck!
