?'s about cost of child
My DH and I are trying to concieve right now for our first child. Last night we were discussing costs and I wondered how am I going to afford a child. Right now both of us are pretty much living paycheck to paycheck with little left over. We both need to work so that means I will eventually need day care (once I go back to work). Alot of the baby furnature I already have, as well as knowing I would get things from a baby shower that was needed for the baby (so not much expense) - I figure I would breastfeed if I could (and have formula costs) and maybe diapers being the biggest cost in the beginning. Does that sound about right?
Is there anyone else here who basically lived paycheck to paycheck and how did you handle things?
I am really worried but also want to believe things will work out for the best (and know daycare would be my biggest expense and I know no one in this town so I would have to find a babysitter and somehow afford it.
