    Oh for clothes I think I have spent about $100, but was given so so much for bub. The only clothes for me I bought were a pair of maternity jeans which I had a uni discount for and a couple of $8 Kmart feeding bras lol.

    Ah you did well to save that. I havnt saved much at all as medical expenses this year was ridiculous but worth it. Having bought a lot of things before mat leave starts will definitely help. I've only got a few small items left to buy. Also will be paying off a car when we receive our tax return this will help hugely and save us $670 a month plus interest. I will be on half pay for about 5 weeks or so well till PPl starts so am no longer stressing as I was months ago as things are falling into place and are manageable. Will buy some boxes of nappies this week too, just not sure how many to get. I like stylish stuff too I just buy a mixture of cheaper stuff and then the stuff I like

But I am trying to limit additional costs during this time by buying in advance. I do however gravitate toward stylish items which have a higher price tag unfortunately so you can spend much less. Buying as much as I can second hand too.

    I'd advise to look out for specials on nappies and buy a few boxes if ur using normal ones. Newborns go through heaps but also grow a lot at the start. Wipes too!

    My 4 siblings and parents + inlaws got us alot of stuff so we only bought a pram and car seat from our own money. Pram was $179 from an online ebay store shipped from qld...brand new. Car seat was $60 because that model was discontinued and I used $10 voucher from target you get in that bounty bag from your maternity hospital.

    We were given money to buy a boori cot from baby bunting for $600 mattress was $150..it converts into a bed too. Will be great for future (I hope!) Babies.

    For wipes can I suggest big w - they have boxes of 8 big packs of curash wipes for $24, these are normally around $9 a pack at woolies. I also found coles comfy bot newborn nappies fantastic.

    Just on the big w sale.... be careful of their sizes! I got a few 0000 suits from there and they are MASSIVE. Easily bigger than the 000s from Target.

    This is true, theb some of their sizes are whack the other way, I brought 000's for DS3 who is still on size 0000 in a lot of things and it was too small, had to return it for a 00! He's only 5kg at 8 weeks old!
