Welcome to Australian Baby Bargains, saving you money!

Welcome to Australian Baby Bargains, the only destination you’ll need to sell the gear your little ones have outgrown and grab yourself great deals on pre-loved baby and children’s items.

From our humble beginnings on Facebook, we’ve grown into a thriving online marketplace. We bring Australian parents a high-quality, completely free and (most importantly) local service for buying and selling new and pre-loved baby and children’s items.

It’s virtually effortless to buy and sell your baby and child items here.

Best of all, it’s local—and 100% FREE!

Don’t forget to check out our hugely popular marketplace, our online directory showcasing a selection of amazing businesses we love so much, and the centerpiece of our website, the baby classifieds.

I won’t insult any of us mums by saying that creating a business is like giving birth. If it was, they’d give out epidurals for entrepreneurs. However, there’s always a good story behind every great venture—and here’s mine.

With my own stockpile of baby items to sell, I quickly grew frustrated with listings on online auction sites—paying the fees, waiting for bidders, and failing to sell a lot of the time. I decided there had to be a better, cheaper way to buy and sell these goods. We all know kids grow faster than they can wear out their clothes and toys so I needed to create a solution.

I setup an album on Facebook to promote to my friends and quickly became impatient! My idea then blossomed into the concept of a “fan page” to share with other mums in Australia—and that’s when Adelaide Baby Bargains (ABB) was born.

Word spread fast, and ABB became the buzz around town. With our membership steadily growing and our Facebook page overloaded with listings, we developed a dedicated website to better serve mums. The site was a huge success, and I knew it was time to share Baby Bargains with the rest of Australia.

It’s been a lot of work, but so worth it!  We’re finally here and I’m thrilled to introduce you Australian Baby Bargains.  Shop locally, or shop across cities! We’ve got thousands of listings of all things babies and kids, and best of all – IT’S FEE FREE!

So, what are you waiting for? Join Australian Baby Bargains today (it won’t cost you a cent) and discover the revolutionary shopping experience that’s taken Adelaide by storm. Like thousands of others, you’ll soon wonder what you ever did without it.

Saving Money, One Nappy Change at a Time!

Almost one in two working families in Australia live dangerously close to the financial brink and up to 90% feel uncomfortable with their financial position, according to a recent survey by RaboDirect.

Sobering thoughts when you add in the cost of raising a baby to its first birthday. International baby resource, Babycentre, has calculated that bringing up baby for the first 12 months can cost parents up to $16,000!

One of the biggest expenses parents face with their new baby is nappies, with a cost of up to $6000 per child in disposable nappies!

Most new parents don’t give much thought to the cost of nappies before their baby arrives, but once they take their precious little bundle home from the hospital, the weekly expenditure on nappies really starts to bite, especially when the parents may have just dropped from two salaries to one.

Founder of Cushie Tushies and Telstra Business Awards finalist, Catherine Langman, says that more and more parents are turning to modern cloth nappies as a way to save money. Not only can they save you $3000 to $5000, but will also save up to one tonne of rubbish being generated. And that’s per child compared to disposables!

Financial Counselling Australia suggests people should try to treat savings as if it were a regular bill.

Parents-to-be can take this advice one step further and layby their modern cloth nappies whilst still pregnant – that way, once baby arrives and your household income drops, you already have all your nappies for birth to toilet training and your household budget won’t be under as much pressure.

With over 300,000 babies born in Australia every year, there’s a lot of families who could benefit, potentially saving a combined $900million!

For further information about modern cloth nappies or details of the potential savings parents can make using them, please contact Catherine Langman at or visit their website
