Starryeyes: You should consider cloth diapers rather than spending so much money on disposable ones. A child will go through an average of 3500 or so diapers in the first year of its life.


Or, if you go the route of disposables, both of my kids used the Target brand and we have never had any issues with leaking or anything like that and they are a fraction of the price of Huggies or Pampers.

Also, even if you plan on nursing, go to the Enfamil and Similac websites and sign up for free samples. We haven't spent a dime on formula with my son in the three months that he's been alive.

Mrs.Sharpier: Good luck kiwi!! Also look on craigslist for baby items, somethings are OBO, and you can get a steal! (specifically for infant diapers that babies have outgrown)


I'll look into that. And as far as the med expenses... It was bad luck that I ended up this sick. I could have handled it if I'd been working this whole time. I've put on a good face here but it's been pretty bad.

Fondle My Sweaters: Isn't this what baby showers are for?


Unfortunately I got a lot of clothes at my shower. Clothes aren't really what I need. I mean, it's adorable that you got me a ladybug Halloween costume, but it's not functional.

We did that with our second kid.  It's a HUGE savings.  We just kept disposables on hand for trips and holidays at other people's homes.  It's not even a real inconvenience once you get in the rhythm.

The only caveat to this is if you're like me and don't have a washer/dryer.

We do have laundry pick up service but they don't do diapers
>:-/

But I found a good compostable, eco friendly diaper that I plan on using for my newbie. But cloth diapers are cuuuuuuuute but stink to high hell.

Your babies exploded? WTF were you feeding them!?

I registered for both because I know I'll need both. I'd like to do primarily cloth but on those days when I can't face the laundry pile, or we're going out somewhere...

Newborn baby poop has the consistency of mustard, water, and small curd cottage cheese mixed together.

Why has your wife failed her son and stopped nursing? :)
 
2013-07-15 11:32:59 AM
There is nothing left on the baby registry. She needs to add diapers, etc.

I'm not buying someone poor and desperate baby bows, gimme a break.

I think that is covered on the wish list. I'm not too up on diapers these days, but it seems like there are 'covers'.

She hasn't. Doctor told us to supplement because he was eating like crazy and yet still hadn't reached birth weight after 3 weeks.

Soy formula.
 
2013-07-15 11:35:01 AM
One thing to keep in mind is that if you're going back to work while the child is still an infant, daycare (or at least our daycares) won't be down with cloth diapers.

It doesn't start to stink until you introduce formula or foods other than milk from mother's big, milky, off-limits-to-dad boobs.

Tell her that after you deal with cloth diapers for a year with your own kid. We tried that with kid #2, it lasted 3 weeks. They stink!


This just in: babies poop. A lot.

Dad has gotten the greenlight to work from home. That's a blessing because we can't afford daycare.

why is she expecting to give birth to a toddler?

protip: when asking for emergency help for baby essentials don't include toddler bows and toys on the list

also 7k in medical debt is something you can pay off in installments.
 
2013-07-15 11:38:15 AM
I'm sorry I cannot donate money.

If you lived near me I could give you some free baby stuff, we don't need.  Since you don't my advice is to hit up yard sales for clothes, books, toys.  You can usually get things very cheap, there is always folks selling stuff 4-5 items for $1.

Look for things like a vibrating chair, babies love that thing it will reduce your stress.  If you qualify there are many church and govt. assistence programs.

If you don't mind second hand stuff, my wife and I were going to go through some of my daughters old clothes and donate them. I can see if she'd be willing to donate them to a TFette.

No, you just use them to keep the tater tots from sticking. Rub baby oil on the inside of the pan.

If mineral oil is made out of minerals, and vegetable oil is made out of vegetables, what is baby oil made from?

The typical daycare will change a kid's diaper every 2 hours or sooner if it smells like poop.

You can get that down to 4-5 if you use a lot of Desatin.
