Nothing for us , Military paid for all the hospital bills.

Now beside the hospital bill , like dip,toy, clothes , who knows! alot im sure!

we save alot of money on Formula since iam EBF , so all that extra money goes to clothes and misc toys.

and now im spending on CD so the toll is going up! lol

Our hospital bill was almost $24,000 (for a freaking vaginal delivery). We'll pay about $500 total out of our pocket.

The cost for me having a baby was around 5K majority of it was paid by my insurance. But my hospital bill only cost me $800.. But I paid around $2,000 for prenatal care due to me being high risk..

Military paid for everything. Including my 2 week hospital stay before she was born via induction / vaginal delivery at 36 weeks 3 days. I was high risk and on complete bed rest.

Like, nothing. It was $25 copay for his circumcision. As far as baby "stuff" we had everything b/c we had our kids so close, both are boys and we cloth diaper. Now I just pay my parents for daycare w/ occasional splurgey gifts b/c they won't take money. I am really lucky!! Yay!!

I was lucky...the hospital I delivered at only has private rooms and doesn't charge an upgrade fee.
