Re: 1stime mom question for those who've done this B4
when you first come home with the baby they go through a lot of wipes and diapers. i would say a least 2 packs of diapers a week. they tend to go poop every time you feed them it seems. lots of wipes too. they don' spoil ,so you could start stocking up when you have coupons and there are sales before you have the baby. the newborn diapers they outgrow pretty fast so i wouldn't get too many packs, maybe a few. then size 1 they are in a little longer. if you can get some before your out on materninty leave it would help with the finances while your out. as far as formula the powder type last a little longer and is a little cheaper. i always made them up fresh as i needed them. you might go through a couple cans a week. i don't know if you have a WIC program around you but you might want to see if you qualify for it. you could ask your peds office. that would help alot with formula.
