OK, first you need to call the hospital and ask about the car seats.
Here if you have a baby and you don’t have a car seat to take the new
baby home in they will give you one. Since it is law to have one.
Now this would depend on also if you have insurance. You don’t want
to pay out of pocket for a car seat at the hospital. You will pay
200% more, knowing hospital prices these days.
If you are having multiples, I am not sure about twins, yet for
triplets, if you get ahold of a lot of these major companies, they may
help you with diapers and other items also. You can write to all of
the companies and ask, the worst they can say is no.
Also get online and go to the three major formula sites Similac,
Enfamil, and Nestle. You register with them as a mother to be. You
register your friends up as well. They send out free cans of formula
and they send you checks in the mail for formula also. When my girl
was born I had over $200 worth of formula already in my pantry.
The good thing is that you can use the large checks at Sam’s to buy
the huge cans of formula. Since it is a check and not a coupon they
must take it.
Sign up for samples of diapers. yet make sure you write to these
companys about your mutliple birth and see if the will give you large
quantities for free.
My girl is 4 and so it has been a while for me. Good luck and best wishes!!!!!
