    I’m on baby number two i did all the prepping for baby number 1 almost 3 years ago and with our new everything is already kid friendly including the oven it had really thick glass and the sockets have built in protectors that make it hard for us to plug things in at times its awesome!

  7. Katelyn says:

    My plan is to have everything ready for baby by 31 weeks because my son was born at 35 weeks and I missed my own baby shower! Im hoping to have one this pregnancy since I never had one before and I plan on this being the last baby 🙂

    • Jamie says:

      What did you do about the shower? My mom is surprising me but not working with his mom so I have my csec last week in October and the shower is close to the 1st week in October. I begged her to change dates bc I want to give people time to buy and enjoy the one party for my family and baby. I also really am needing this shower bc I have just about nothing. Help!

Thats when I moved out of dhs on great standards aslo assuccessful discharge. Me and my fiancee have some help its a very oong story. Any tips that could help?

    • Samary says:

      If is not to easy for u get things for your baby go to store were they sale used stuff u just have to wash it before baby gets here and some retail store like target have menie clearance for baby’s and just buy the things the u are going to need wen baby is here crib diapers blankets wipes and if u are going to Breast-feed her it will be more cheap then buying formula and u can check if you can get Wic for u and her it helps a lot good luck an god bless u and your little joy

      • Jamie says:

        Great answer, I’d add looking at local churches for help, Craigslist for free items, yard sales, and check your health insurance if they offer free car seats and bike helmets, Def WIC, sign up for Enfamil free program.
