When planning for a baby, it is not just about the cute clothes and the newest stroller, it involves a big financial commitment throughout your baby’s growing years. It is estimated that the cost of raising a child is at least $260,000 from birth to late teens. Therefore, it’s important to understand:
- How much of childbirth costs are covered by your health insurance. Just having the baby is expensive.
- What your pre-baby budget looks like. What can you afford to be prepared?
- Your post-delivery budget including recurring costs such as care, diapers, special food/formula and household expenses.
- Long-term financial plans, taking into consideration future costs of daycare, summer camps, sports, and college.
