I'm really interested to hear the 30 day rule, when my sister adopted her baby, the new parents were at the birth, and took her straight away. (This was NZ in the '90's though)

I would just get what you are comfortable in getting, if you decide to keep the baby you will have baby bonus to help get the rest of the things together, new buns really don't need much and as you say it's a summer baby.
If you decide not to keep the baby, I personally wouldn't mind this small outlay, this baby is an innocent, you both are.

I'm very sorry for what you've been through
Surely the 'cooling off period' is a formality and doesn't mean that the child has to be in your physical care for that time?
Couldn't the adoptive parents take physical care of the child as soon as you are ready (from the hospital for example) and when the cooling off period is up you then sign the child over to them legally as well?
I can't see the point of forcing someone to have a lengthy period of time caring for a child they have decided to adopt.
I'm sorry if this is misinformed info.
