So how much does a baby actually cost?

Assuming that I am on maternity leave, the baby is ebf and I use cloth nappies then am I right in thinking that costs after the initial cost of buying nappies, pram, clothes etc will be fairly small? Obviously when I go back to work there will be child care costs. Am I missing something because dh keeps saying how babies are expensive but I can't think of any major costs unless I was buying formula or disposable nappies, which hopefully I won't be.

I didnt have a cot and I did borrow a sling and only used that until 6 months. I didnt feel like I needed anything else really. I hate clutter though so I dont want it messing up the house.

Its the bath seats the older ones go in. I think its difficult bathing all your kids together without them as they get so splashy when together. I agree you dont need those lie down ones for little babies.
