How much did baby gear, furniture, bottles, formula, diapers, etc. cost in the 1950s?

I am throwing a "50s themed", "I Love Lucy" baby shower for a friend of mine in August. I am trying to put together a game where the guests would guess the cost of certain baby items in the 1950s. I can't find anyone who knows or remembers!!! Can anyone help me??? Here are things I would like to know the cost of:
*diapers
*formula
*bottles
*baby carriage
*delivery at the hospital
*toys
*crib
etc

Thanks in advance for anyone that can help!!!!
