Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
Just for clarity are you referring to the items that YOU use when you spend time with your daughter?
I am so sorry but the answer is yes I am afraid.
The maintenance you pay is your contribution towards all the expenses of caring for a child - housing heating clothing etc.
You are still liable to meet her needs while she is with you.
If there is a problem then SSAFA or the British Legion may be able to assist you - an don a more practical level there are many second hand baby sales which may help you as she grows.
I am sorry not to give you better news - please ask if you need further details
