From recycled and upcycled baby clothes and gently used baby carriers to furniture and more from AsiaXPAT or GeoExpat, we tell you all places where you can stock up on second-hand baby gear.

Having a baby in Hong Kong can get expensive. There are plenty of stores and sites that stock the best, most popular and essential baby items. However, most of us don’t have the space to store bulky items and years’ worth of clothes and toys, strollers and high chairs. Sometimes you want a little more control over what you’re getting without a hefty price tag, so we’ve compiled some great free and paid libraries and swap-it venues where you can get second-hand baby items. Not only is it greener for the planet, but it’s also lighter on your wallet!

What To Consider While Buying Second-Hand Baby Items

Not everyone will be comfortable with reusing baby essentials, especially when it is a question of hygiene. You may be more comfortable borrowing or reusing baby gear when it comes from a friend or family member. However, if you keep the following points in mind, you will feel a lot more at ease with the idea of recycling and reusing baby gear:

  • Always examine the items you are going to purchase, especially when it comes to items that have moving or breakable parts.
  • Check on guarantees and warranties for electronic items.
  • Make sure that the item is one that can be carefully and completely cleaned and sanitised. This may not be the case for baby mattresses, as well as car seats and strollers where the padded material is not detachable.
  • Look up reviews of items that you are purchasing as well as current safety guidelines, as these may have changed since the original user purchased the baby item.

Sites And Stores To Rent Or Share Baby Items

There are a few places around Hong Kong where you pay a membership or rental fee to borrow or rent something for a period of time and when you’re done with it, you just return it or swap it for something else. This can range from libraries for books (the most obvious example) to those for toys that are built to lastBreastfeeding mums who want to pump for a short period of time (perhaps those going back to work) can also look at a rental model.

Breastfeeding mums are often big fans of Medela breast pumps, especially the hospital-grade Symphony model. Although this model is expensive ($23,900), renting is much more affordable. Besides a $6,000 deposit, you can pay per month or for up to a six-month period and opt for monthly extensions, if you continue to express breastmilk.
