Message length 300 characters recommended

The crib (a gift from grandpa, around $200)

The carseat (we paid $300 for our convertible seat and $100 for infant seat)

Odds and ends like bottles, nipples, clothes, blankets, soaps/lotions.

and things you may or may not need like a car seat cover, nursing cover, breast pump (a few hundred depending on what you're buying)

then of course the revolving expenses that don't end.. like

Diapers (we buy generic, at a current size 2 we're at $20/week)

Formula (the only kind he can use, $35/week)

oh, and who can forget the actual cost of birth? I was in the hospital for 5 days, c-section (of course this will be the cost that varies the most for mamas). That was $25,000.
