    I'm not keeping track but I would say I'm probably between 1000-1500 Canadian dollars

    Not much. Probably no more than £200!! And thats consumables like nappies, wipes etc. Everything has been given to us by close friends and family. We are so, so lucky.

    I'd say about £200 so far, but we still have to buy the pushchair & car seat, and maybe one of those bouncy chairs and a few toys.....

    In all, I imagine we'll spend around £500, but we've had quite a few things bought for us.

    Best not to think about it really :blush:

    We got the cot, pram, moses and car seat bought for us, which would total about £800 so we were pretty lucky.

    The only big thing we've paid for is his drawers, which were £200, I got a lot of his clothes second hand, so I'd guess in total we've spent somewhere around £400 in total.

    So he's had about £1200 spent on him so far and he's not even been born yet....:blush:

    I would say approximately £500, a lot of it was given to me by family, but the pram alone took up £100 already.

    We have been very lucky.Soon as my MIL found out i was pregnant she went out to the shops and started buying things.We have hardly put our hands in our pockets with friends given us stuff and lots of baby clothes.The one big thing for us to buy would be the nursery furniture at £400 so not bad.

    £90 cot + matress from ikea
    £169 pushchair + car seat mothercare clearance
    £24 rocker
    £12 changing bag TK-MAXX
    £6 night light from ebay
    £45 in Matalan for bedding, changing mat, cot hanger
    £70 Ikea for Expedit bookcase/storage unit
    £18 Boots for nappies, creams, shampoo, comb, clippers,
    £78 clothes from various places

    £512 in total though I'm sure i've missed off some small stuff. I'm actually a really good shopper for a man - I'm usually really good at picking up bargains. I'm also not scared to argue for a discount if I see something has a tiny mark or defect. Got £6 off the nappy bag as it had the tiniest mark on the underside LOL

    I'd say we've spent less than $300 AUS... but we've had a lot of things given to us and there are still a lot of things to come from family and friends who've offered to buy specific things for us.

    I think in total baby has had/will have about $2000 spent on him before he's born.

    We've spent £100 on bedding, £30 on stairgates, maybe £50 on miscellaneous bits and bobs. We've got real nappies to by and a mattress for cotbed but we're getting £50 towards the latter from a friend's mum. We've been given pretty much everything second hand and MIL bought our pram.
