  • 25 for the whole hospital and doctor thing, and about 600 on diapers, maybe like 50 on formula (i got wic) and probably about 100 on clothes (i had a huge baby shower and i LOVE hand-me-downs) the beds he used were a)built by his dad out of left over wood and b)hand-me-downs. i got it good! i love my family!

  • Not much. I breastfed. We used cloth diapers, mostly hand-me-downs, our crib and bassinet have been passed around family and friends for years, the biggest expense was washcloths and onsies.

  • No clue. Probably a lot since we bought everything ourselves (no baby showers, a few hand me downs for the girls but none really for our son). We had 3 babies right in a row so their 1st years all blended together in one dizzying span from June 2000 to November 2003, lol.
