Toddler Furniture Disposal ObstaclesWhatever your reason, perhaps you’re preparing for a move or your child has just outgrown the furniture, regardless, this is a challenging task. One factor which makes it difficult to unload baby/toddler furniture is the 2011 change to federal safety standards. With those changes, many pieces of baby furniture (particularly cribs) can’t be sold or even donated. So, the first thing you need to do is see if any of it is on a current or previous recall list.

- Donate or give it away. If it’s in relatively good condition and still in style and functions well, consider donating it to a local church or other charity. Or, give it away to a family who needs it.
- Just hold onto it. If you plan on having another child, you might just hold onto it and reuse it. After all, it’s a way to cut down on cost and you’re already familiar with it.
