Having a baby is more than just conceiving and bringing your precious little one to this world. You have to think of the responsibilities that come with it, especially whether you are financial capable or not.
Is Your Wallet Ready?
Baby essentials and babies could cost more money than what you thought. Do you have the cash to pay for child care and diapers? Are you covered with health insurance to support for the medical care of your baby? Here are few of the things that you can do to prepare.
Prepare a Budget
Jot down how much you are spending every month on foods, car, home, clothes, medical care and several other bills. Then after, compare how much you are spending with how much you are making. How much money do you have left after paying your bills? You might want to cut back on expenses on buying baby essentials.
It is not that early to save for your baby. Think of how much it will cost for child care and the essentials. Once you knew the amount, try saving that amount every month.
There are baby stuff that might have to be new but some can be borrowed from family and friends. See to it that things such as cribs and car seats have met safety standards.
