This is our 4th baby, we have never had a baby shower we have always had to buy stuff on our own..we are having a girl..My ODD is my oldest and she is 9, my youngest is 4 so we have long ago donated all our baby stuff..well money has been REALLY uber tight this time around. We got a loaner car seat from a neighbor to get the baby home from the hospital, and my DH did some barter work for a crib..but we literaly have nothing else..the smallest size I have in anything is a few 2T items. Most of our friends and family know this, and as usual nobody has asked if we need anything..SO I put a message up on facebook today, stating that we are still on the hunt for hand me downs for a girl and everything will be donated to the battered womens shelter of cleveland once the baby has outgrown it (I would rather donate to those in need, then trash anything) so to let me know if anyone has stuff they want to get rid of..
I kinda feel like this is tacky, like I cant handle my own..BUT I also know that we need stuff..Im kinda freaking that the baby can come anytime and we have noda for it..
Does this just seem like I am begging for a handout?
