Mrs.Sharpier: Errrrrm....pregnant women cry. A lot. I cried during the antiques roadshow last night


NO. She isn't allowed to cry! She is a poor person!

I cry all the time for no reason but I'm not pregnant. Am I broken??

I agree with this statement.  Some of you people should close your mouth holes.

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.

Hi.

sup, wizface?


I was wondering where you were. I even thought about sponsoring you if you were a liter. Then I forgot and posted 462 pictures of my penis. You missed it.

Even though my plan to live a week in my life cynicism and sarcasm free failed by the second day or so, I am not a cynical asshole at this exact moment.

KingoftheCheese:
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.

My youngest was in ICU for several days because he wouldn't nurse and couldn't tolerate most formulas because of allergies.  We struggled with the eating issue for months until we found a formula he could tolerate.  Even then, he wouldn't eat the formula mixed from powder, so we had to buy the pre-mixed stuff at something like $17 per quart.  It was insanely expensive.

If she's on TFD, why didn't she post this?

I would recommend reaching out to local churches for baby supplies. People might talk a lot of sh*t about churches, but they will help out pretty much anyone, even if you're not a member. Worth looking into.

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

You're kidding me.

Ok, I'll add a few more things.

My jaw just hit the floor. I don't even know what to say, you guys. I'm about to start crying.

or just only be grateful.

that's be cool too.

I'm just crazy and I can't watch those stupid "help battered puppies" commercials

Behold, the power of Fark.  My $.02: add some diapers and clothes for the next couple of sizes up.  They outgrow newborn stuff really fast.

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.


Clothes are basically the one area we're set on. I have clothes for a good year since I have a niece.

And sgt cyanide- I'm absolutely grateful. I'm in shock. You guys are wonderful.

Life is like that-especially given the shiatty level of our social support structures for new parents. I hold no illusions that I could just as easily be in your financial position and have no idea what the hell I would do. Kids need a lot of shiat! Good luck! And keep your eyes out for amazon!

One thing (among a few actually) that I admire about the Mormon church, is that they have Women's relief societies. If you're a member for 4 weeks or so after your baby is born, women come to your house and clean and prepare meals and stuff.

It's almost like Europe, but with more Jesus. I guess that's the American way :)
 
2013-07-15 11:48:35 AM

KingoftheCheese: LlamaGirl: wizden: Ain't nobody got the stomach for that. I would have shot myself in the face within three months if I had to scrub that mess out of cloth diapers every time the baby exploded.

Your babies exploded? WTF were you feeding them!?

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


I don't like where this thread is going.

Now you've got some baby bows coming your way, kiwi.  No reason your daughter shouldn't look cute while you're dealing with essentials.

I can't speak for others, but I'm more likely to donate when someone posts on behalf of someone else in need. When someone shows up in a thread and is like "Gimme some money, y'all" my immediate reaction is "Nope", but when someone old school like Teriaki shows up and is like "Hey, someone needs help" my reaction is more "Who is it and what can I do?"

I didn't post it because Teriaki offered to do it for me. Even though I'm the one who needs help, it's easier on the ears when people hear "I have a friend in need" rather than "I need."

TF is turning into a mutual aid society, like they had in the country a decade ago. We help own and don't rely on the government.

Somewhere there is a doctoral dissertation in this.

No. And no one should ever be pressured to help in any situation. The worse thing here is anyone looking down on someone who doesn't want to help. Life sucks, get a helmet.

swaniefrmreddeer: 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.

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!


Yeah, I would consider doing it if my town had a diaper cleaning service (though that defeats the cost saving point), but there is no way I am going to clean literally every single dirty diaper my child makes. At least I can honestly say I have experience dealing with cloth diapers from my nannying days in college, so it's a lot easier to fend off "those mothers" who get all preachy about it.

The new Amazon Mom program offers free scheduled delivery of diapers and something like a 20% discount. You basically just have to give them your baby's due date so they can sell it to marketers.

Agreed. I was out of work for 18 months a number of years back. You never know when you might get hit. Fortunately we survived it pretty well and have done well since. Can't save the world, but sometimes you can do something for a very small piece of it.
