Want the best baby deals? Don’t we all. Having and raising children is expensive. From strollers and cribs to diapers and daycare, it’s a good idea to carefully consider and realistically plan out what you’ll need and what recurring monthly expenses you’ll have. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, the average annual child-rearing expenses for two-parent, middle-income families ranges between $12,350 and $13,900. Some studies show families spend anywhere from $20,000 to $50,000 during a baby’s first year of life.
Is it worth it? Absolutely. But does it mean you need to pay full price for all of your baby stuff? Absolutely not!
If you’re really into crunching numbers, there’s an incredibly useful tool called the First-Year Baby Costs Calculator that lets you customize and figure out how much you’re likely to spend caring for your baby in their first 12 months. But before or after you crunch those numbers and rework the budget for your little bundle of joy, here’s how to get the best deals on some of the best baby gear out there.

Everlove by Ergobaby
Ergobaby believes in taking care of each other and the planet we live on. So at the beginning of 2020, Ergobaby launched a sustainability program. Everlove by Ergobaby is a buy-back, restoration and resale program for baby carriers – the first of its kind.
Ergobaby carriers are built to last longer than most families need to use them, even if they’re using one carrier for multiple babies and toddlers! To carry on Ergobaby’s strong tradition of designing quality carriers and connecting families, and to help create a more sustainable future, the company is further extending the life cycle of its carriers by taking back previously-loved carriers. It is making them like new for families to create their own special memories with.
How do you buy a baby carrier through the Everlove program?
This family-to-family re-commerce program is a smart way to save on a baby product you need without sacrificing quality or the safety of your baby. And it’s easy if you’re in the market for a baby carrier. Visit the Ergobaby website and click on the “Pre-Loved Carriers” tab at the top of the homepage. You will be taken to a new page, and from there you can click on the “Shop” tab and browse until you find the perfect carrier.
How do you know the quality is still good?
Is the carrier still safe to use since it’s been used by someone else? Is it actually clean? Yes and yes. Each carrier that is sent back to Ergobaby goes through an extensive 30-point inspection process. If the carrier is deemed authentic, durable and in good condition, it’s cleaned using a baby-safe, eco-friendly deep cleaning method and given a certified stamp of approval to be sold for a new family to enjoy.
How do you sell back a baby carrier?
On the flip side, if you buy a new Ergobaby carrier and no longer need it, you may be able to sell it back to Ergobaby. If your carrier is eligible, then you can send it to the company. Once it’s received and officially accepted to be re-sold, you will receive either a $50 gift card to Ergobaby or a $20 gift card to a retailer of your choice. You can also make a donation to Baby2Baby.
So whether you buy a gently-used baby carrier for less or sell back a new one you bought and used, you’re getting a great deal!
Beware of Too-Good-To-Be-True Prices
Sometimes the best baby carrier deals are too good to be true. Unfortunately, there are a lot of unauthorized distributors selling fake Ergobaby carriers online at wholesale or clearance prices. If you find a baby sale on an Ergobaby carrier that seems suspicious, question it. If you want to verify the authenticity of a baby carrier and you live in the United States, contact Customer Care and an Ergobaby employee will help verify if the carrier is authentic or not.
