We are past the baby stage! Looking back, it was an amazing time but pretty hazy due to sleep deprivation. Thankfully, I have this blog and thousands of photos and videos to refresh my memory.
With the experience of being a dad to infants behind me, I tried to think of how I could pass a little something on to my readers. Here is a short list of ways to reduce the financial impact of having babies.
- Co-sleeping – I know this is a bit of a hot topic but honestly, imagine how much money we could’ve saved. No basinette. No crib. No special bedding. No toddler bed.
- Prolonged Breastfeeding – Sorry for adding yet another hot button issue but milk can be pricey and formula is really expensive. Sure you’ll get strange looks when your fully toothed toddler asks for breast milk, but imagine the savings!
- Buy Used – New baby stuff is for friends and family to purchase. If you have to purchase anything for baby, save yourself some bucks and buy used. Used clothing. Used toys. Used cloth diapers – they’ll never know.
