Why does baby stuff have to cost so much?

My son needs a new car seat and since he is such a big boy I can't buy just a cheap cosco car seat he has to have the one with a higher weight limit. It costs $139 dollars!

  • Why don't you research more for that car seat i got my DD stroller for $239.00 and it was $389.00 research the brand and your area and find the best deal on that seat. It takes up some time but it will be worth it.

  • I am just so scared I will never get caught up on bills and be able to get my son the things he needs. And for those of you who are wondering NO I do not have internet at home.

  • I do that on most things but I won't for a car seat because that isn't safe.
