Second Newborns Still Cost This Much?

 This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and Walmart Family Mobile. All opinions are mine alone. #Save4Summer #CollectiveBias Wait – hold on here.  I’ve already had a kid and it was expensive.  The amount of crap you have to buy is out of control.  But, when the heck did having a second newborn cost this much?!?  I feel like I’m having these awful flashbacks to receiving Amazon.com boxes every single day at my old apartment when we had…
