Since you’re breastfeeding….that saves a lot
Diapers, wipes. nursing pads, and clothes. Those are going to be your main costs that you will keep incurring. Other stuff is mainly a one time purchase. Those things for me (i have a three month old) cost around a month- about bucks a week. And you can do better than that if you watch your spending and get hand me down clothes. Once solids are introduced your cost will go up- but if you’re breastfeeding there is no nutritional need to introduce solids early (even not neccessary at months- it’s just for practice).
Also, if you send me a message on here I will give you a referral code for diapers.com, and you will save $ on your first purchase. And they are the cheapest place for diapers- I’ve done my research and they’re the best. Send me a message for the code.
I think the cost depends on a lot of factors. For example if your breastfeeding you will be paying out nothing, whereas bottle feeding you have the cost of milk, bottles and other bits and pieces. Are you going to use a dummy/pacifier? Different nappies can have a huge price difference and using reusable nappies or buying in bulk can save you loads. When your child is onto food making your own or buying jars can make a big difference. Weather you intend to buy everything new or use places like craigslist will make a big difference to the cost of larger things.
You need to have a think about what choices you will make and then try and work out how much you need of things to add things up.
per week its hard to say
per month? -…….. …. lol…. good luck

If your other child had the virus, then it's very likely that the baby has it too. You can use pedialyte or any electrolyte solution to keep the baby from getting dehydrated. Try putting some in a medicine dropper and giving it every minutes when he's awake. Infant tylenol will help with the fever and any pain he's in. Call your doctor for the correct dosage. Usually if the baby is weaned, you should stay away from milk for a day or two. If he's breastfed, you can usually continue as normal. Dry snacks and bananas can help with diarrhea if that happens. If he still has a fever on Tylenol or it lasts more than a day or two I'd take him to the doctor.Source(s): Mommy to year old. isn't a fever. It doesn't even warrant medication.

What else can I do to help her?
Answers Favorite Answer*Dairy can actually 'plug up' a child more. So if she has a lot of yogurt or cheese frequently,I'd cut some of that out of her diet for now. Other than that. Increase the amount of FRUIT you're giving her. There is far more fiber in the flesh and peel of fruits than in juice. Juice in all honesty is flavored sugar water with vitamin c. That is unless you fresh squeeze all of the juice you give her. And that is not the easiest for most of us who are busy! Soft fruits high in Fiber :-Apples-Avocado-Bananas (this one surprises most people)-Berries ; strawberries,raspberries,blueberries etc-Dried fruits ; Figs, Raisins, Apricots, Dates, etc.-Oranges-Pears-Prunes (actually at the bottom of the 'highest fiber fruits' list)yes more liquids, try a small amount of prune juice, please skip suppositories, any un-needed medications are not good for young children / babies, they can cause harm in the long run.

Also what foods you are feeding be sure they are age appropriate!Have you ever spoken to a pediatric gastroenterologist about it?I have a feeling you may be giving too much juice.prun juice helps and massaging her belly with baby oil Read more
