Just wanted to update everyone on what's going on because everyone was so helpful.
We dropped of the stuff for the baby Saturday. We even stopped and bought more. this is what we took: 4 jumbo packs of diapers (80 in each pack), 12 packs of wipes(2 cases of 6), 5 blanket sleepers, 2 packs of socks (6 pairs each pack), 8 outfits, a 3 pack of receiving blankets, 3 baby bath, 3 baby shampoo, 3 destin, 8 teethers, 5 cans of formula ($30 a can), and 6 rattles.
The mom called today and said that we could have brought more. Then she emailed me (not my hubby) and said that if we loved the baby we would have brought more. We have taken stuff and dropped it off every 2 weeks except this time it was 3 weeks because she said we couldn't come there.
In the email she also said that if she wins custody she don't care what the court says my hubby can't see the baby. She also said that if he wins she is going to leave the state with the baby when she gets him the first visit. She told my husband on the phone that if he loved his son he would leave me and be with her for his son.
Anyways just wanted everyone to know what's going on because you were so helpful.

8 teethers? What's the kid going to do with that? Okay, just being snarky I guess.

Well, at least she said that in email. Print it TODAY so that it has today's time/date stamp on it and file it away for when you go to court. Make sure your lawyer gets a copy of it.

Just a suggestion, on the next 'drop off' I'd include some baby tylenol and some motrin and some mylacon. Those are expensive things that are needed sometimes on a moment's notice and are handy to have. It might help show that dad is concerned with the overall well being of his baby and not just the outer appearance.

Are y'all keeping receipts for these things?

Next time bring more formula...Don't they go thru 1 can a day? Baby outfits aren't as important as food. Also, extra crib sheets never hurt. Also maybe a box of that "Dreft" laundry soap that they recommend. But overall, you did great. I hope it keeps up..

At $30 a can I certainly hope it is the powered kind that makes a lot more then a days worth!!!! Granted, I haven't done formula in a LONG time but man... if it is $30 a DAY to feed a baby..???? How can anyone afford them? LOL ;-)

After reading that list; I have this urge to start singing FIVE GOLDEN RINGS... four calling birds, three french hens and a partiridge in a pear tree!!!!!!!

If it's $30 a can it will be a kind that's concentrated or most likely powdered, which will last a LOT longer than one day.

I have always said you can NEVER have too many crib sheets. I didn't go in for that expensive 'baby' detergent. I just used mild stuff like All-free liquid. I still use that since hubby & kids all have allergies and are sensitive. Plus it's inexpensive.

Make sure you keep that email as well with the threats to take the baby out of state and to keep him from seeing the baby. That will be good for you in court. Keep all of those type emails.

Actually, Dreft is a "soap" and is not safe for baby things...you need to use something that is a "detergent." The "soap" ones will ruin the flame-retardent qualities of the clothes...

He is on the powder. It usually takes 3 to 4 days to go through a can. Plus the baby is on WIC and that provides fromula and cereal.
When the baby had the ear infection we sent 2 bottles of Motrin haome with him along with the perscription. Plus before his first appointment for shots we sent a bottle of Tylenol because I always had it on hand when my kids had shots for possible fevers.
When the baby was born we went to the hospital. We took a complete Pooh bedding set with extras. The set had a comforter, sheet, and bumper. The extras were another sheet, mobil, diaper stacker, and a crib toy. They were all Pooh too.
We never thought to drop of detergant. Next time we will. Thanks!

It was 8 teethers because they all came in a pack together. There's a teething blanket, 2 water filled teether rings, 1 filled with water shaped like a hand, 1 filled with water shaped like a foot, teething beads, a soft car shaped one, and a soft boat shaped one. They are really cute.
