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 boobs! 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!
