    Yes but mostly bought new. After 6 years of ttc I got a little excited.

    I didn't. I didn't know anyone who had kids. DS is seven and the closest person in my family (on my dad's side, whicch are the only ones I speak with) to his age is 18.

    Nope. Everything was brand new. Looking back it was a complete waste of $$ buying new. They grow out of it so fast.
    At least our friends got the benefit of our barely used items when they had children.
