"If I'm really so expensive, that if I could give a little cash?" — Said in the unforgettable cartoon kid on Kid and Carlson. Indeed, those who think about the new addition to the family, as well as those who already got the completion, no first-hand knowledge that the children — it's a pretty serious part of the family budget. How much are our children?

Infants (birth to one year)

We shall not dwell on the cost of pregnancy and childbirth. Suppose this step has already been taken, and in your house settled screaming little treasure.

Of course, do not feel sorry for treasure nothing, but still pay attention to the column "on what can be saved." Grow a baby is much cheaper if you breastfeed, rather than formula milk (not to mention the physical and psychological benefits of breast-feeding). It is possible to do without a walker and arena, especially as modern pediatricians do not approve when the child is in a vertical position before it is ready to be physiologically. Car seat should only be the case if the baby quite often have to carry the machine. Instead of a small bath can be used directly larger adult bath. At the same time, and will learn to swim.

It is possible to do without weights. A compromise — not to buy scales, and rent them.

Preschoolers

The child has grown out of the infant crib, it's time to think of new furniture for it. And increase the cost of a nanny, especially if she spends with the child full-time. A separate article — a vehicle (the park is updated all the time, and it must have at least two things: the summer and the winter.) Parents of older preschoolers are thinking about training in school: you can either deal with a private teacher, or for extra classes in kindergarten or preparatory courses at the chosen school, depends on the price issue.
