Breastfeeding is the cheapest thing to do when it comes to feeding your baby plus you can get extra stuff from wic when breastfeeding but if you aren't going to do that wic will give you formula. Babies tend to grow out of newborn diapers quickly. The most I have been through was around 100. You can look online for coupons for formula and diapers.

You don't always have issues breastfeeding just because you did with another child. Even with milk not coming in issues. I would say try to breastfeed but also get formula just because you may have problems. I had problems with my first and my second was breastfed for 14 months. With my third I dried up at 4 months. I'm not trying to make you feel bad about not breastfeeding but trying can't hurt. When my third was born he wouldn't latch on sometimes and I wouldn't try for more than 5 minutes before giving him a bottle at first. Even with my second for the first 5 days he had formula at night because he wouldn't latch on. I wanted a happy full baby not a crying empty one. Sometimes it works out sometimes it doesn't.
