The First Year
My fiancee and I want to start trying for a kids a few months after our marriage. What was it like for the first year being a parent? About how much minimum did a first baby cost you in diapers, food, medicine, and other basic needs? What were the best baby items you had? What would you/ would you not suggest?
I also want our child to have breast milk, but for how long? When to wean? I've heard a year, I've heard to start at 6 months, and all sorts of stuff.
What are the best diapers to get so they have less of a chance of getting diaper rash?
Add anything else that would be helpful to first year parents.
