Ok so dh makes 800 every two weeks, 900-1000 when he gets overtime. Our next couple checks were going to getting a few things for our dd2. But we just pretty much totaled our car. Dh does NOT want to fix it, he wants a new one. So now were going to have to spend our next few xhexks on a new car. I nees to know what I can live without rhe first monrh dd is here. We have a crib, bassinet, swing, and clothes from dd1. But thats it. Im breastfeeding also. There are things id like but I can get them later. I just need to know what I need now. Well be getting a carseat and diapers of course. And binkies. Anything else I absolutely need?

Necessary? Just diapers, wipes, clothes and your b**bs! Haha and the carseat of course but you mentioned that. I'd buy gripe water jic she's colicky. Do you work? Is a breastpump a need?

Maybe a stroller or a carrier if you don't already have one, but there's not much a newb NEEDS when they first get here. :)

I dont work, so a breastpump isnt a need, although o will be getting one later. And ill be trying cloth diapering for the first time, but thatll have to come.after Theyre so expensive!
