The baby bonus we got for our 2nd paid for a lawn mower and getting my wisdom teeth out! This bub i think we may get a new washing machine and paint the house (its currently green, pink, cream and brown)
As for how much I get from the government... us aussies get $44 a fortnight per child (thats part a) then there is extra in part a if your hubby earns a certain amount and how many kids you have (I get $0). Then there is part B that is judged on the mothers income. You get full amount if you earn less than about $4000-5000, and it cuts out completely around the $18000-20000 mark. We also get a pro-rata bonus of about $600 per child per year, and we have the child care benifit where you get child care (slightly) subsidised depending on your income. There are a couple of other things too....
