Question about selling used homemade carriers?
 
I have a couple mei tai carriers that I made and kept for myself and my daughter. I love them but I also am trying to save up for a wrap. I know in 2013 there are new laws about selling carriers and being able to track them for liability reasons. I am wondering if that applies to used homemade items?

I hadn't heard about the law change... I can't imagine it would apply to homemade used carriers. As long as your upfront about how you made it, materials used etc and made it safely (seam allowance and x boxes) and you're not making a business out of it, just selling carriers you made for your own personal use. I don't see a problem.

My understanding is that it applies to all carriers made for sale in the US, including WAHM products (which many beloved carrier brands are). It does not affect resale, so I am not sure that it would apply to your carriers made before the phase in-date, although certain parts of the law (regarding labeling, registration, lead testing etc) have been in effect for a while. It would probably be best to ask someone from BCIA (baby carrier industry alliance), as they have been working with many WAHM to help them come into compliance.

I would also consult the BCIA to get information that specifically pertains to your situation. :)
