9 Dallas Organizations That Need Your Used Baby Items


The time has come. Your precious bundle of joy is now a toddler or even a preschooler. He no longer fits in those adorable tiny clothes. She has outgrown the Boppy, the bouncer, and the bassinet. You’re done with the maternity clothes and breast pump. And whether saying goodbye to this phase fills you with joy or bittersweet sadness, all the baby stuff has to go.
