Leeds Baby Bank said it was running “extremely low” on stair gates, bouncy chairs, and Aptamil milk (stages one and three).
But the greatest need is for cots, cotbeds and prams, particularly those that can be used for newborn babies.
“We’ve had some lovely people donating since we made the appeal, but cots are like gold dust,” she said.
“Cots and prams are probably the most expensive things parents have to buy, so it’s a popular item for us to be asking for.”
Donations can be dropped at the baby bank’s base in Bramley most weekdays, but donors are asked to get in touch to make arrangements.
Meanwhile, the search is continuing for new low-cost premises in Leeds which would allow it to expand its services.
