Baby equipment can be really expensive so paying it off over time can be lighter on the pocket.
A cost of a baby cot generally is around $500 and of course for a bassinet it can be around $250.
But there is so many other things that your baby will need – or the mother and father will need – such as a big tall boy set of drawers to put the bundles of clothes in.
Then you’ve got the changing table which is generally fairly cheap to buy.
You’ve also got the equipment such as a milk streriliser, milk bottles, dummies, nappies and clothes.
The list goes on.
Having a baby can be an extremely expensive time even with a baby bonus if you’re an Australian resident living in Australia.
The need for good financial support is the most important thing when No.1 deciding to have a baby and No.2 deciding to keep the baby.
A good mental support base is also a great foundation for this.
But for those just beginning their entry into family life, the financial issue can be a draining one and perhaps one that the mother of the baby needs not to contend with when carrying the child. This can induce extra stress on the mother and the baby. The father definitely needs to take responsibility for these things and become the main breadwinner.
Sometimes during the pregnancy process, the mother may need to be counselled and this is completely normal. They may need to seek outside advice if they are depressed. It is very easy for mothers to become depressed during pregnancy and finances and a look of uncertainty to the future usually springs on any depression vibes.
You should also have the baby’s room ready also so that the baby is ready 0n arrival. If you don’t know the baby’s sex, pain the wall white and make the furniture white and then adds some blues or pinks once you know the sex of the baby.
