Re: really dissapointed and sad and upset.. needing advice on what to do.

The NICU won't hold her until a certain weight; when she's stable enough to go home she'll go home regardless of weight.

I don't think even a 6lb baby would fit in it. My son was 8lb and he fit but if he had been any smaller I don't think it would have worked.

You want an Onboard 35. They are really amazing for preemies. My daughter was 6 pounds 4 oz, and on the second set of holes. It fits my daughters 13" doll perfectly on the bottom holes, and with the inner most crotch position.

Re: really dissapointed and sad and upset.. needing advice on what to do.

I am in NM and we have county help. We have a projects office for each county. They do stuff like home visits, counseling, ect. I got a convertible seat from them for $15. Not bad for a brand new seat! Given, it's not the nicest out there but it works and we still use it a few times a month (it is a backup in our truck now) So if for some reason everything else falls through, maybe your area has something similar. :shrug:

Re: really dissapointed and sad and upset.. needing advice on what to do.

It sounds like your DH needs to visit PSD every single day until things are right. Why exactly is it messed up? Are they missing certain allowances? Are they taking money out for some reason? Is it COLA? If PSD says it is fixed, then your DH needs to print out documentation on exactly where the errors are and get it fixed. Unfortunately with the military, it is the service member's responsibility to make sure everything is correct on the LES. The military won't do squat to fix it unless the service member goes to PSD and ask for it to be corrected.

Do any friends or neighbors have a seat that you can borrow (that you trust has not been in an accident?)

Re: really dissapointed and sad and upset.. needing advice on what to do.

In Texas there are some pregnancy aid centers that are paid for by churches. They make you take a carseat class then after the class you get a NIB carseat. Maybe call and let some churches know that you need help. It's ok to ask for help.
