I'm not talking about the birth I'm talking about the actual baby. I guess since I have never had to actually buy furniture for my baby I don't see how it could cost thousands and thousands of dollars each year. A month supply of formula is maybe $120-$130 a month. 2 boxes of diapers for a month would probably be maybe $40. I just don't see how its expensive.
I don't have to pay for 2 kids to go to daycare. I refuse to move my oldest just so the baby can go to daycare. I have an aunt who would love to babysit until the baby turns one and I can put her with her sister and believe it or not not all babies go through 2 boxes of diapers ecspecially if you buy boxes of 100+.
