So as the title says....is it expensive going from 1 child to 2 children?? I really want another child but my DH is concerned about finances which I totally understand! What are your opinions on costs? Is it really that big a difference? I still have all my baby gear and I am SAHM full time!
TIA for any opinions smile
Not if you have 2 of the same sex smile
and can use all the clothes and some shoes again.
Seriously though it does cost more as you have another child to provide for, so bed, possibly a double pram, another car seat, Drs, nappies but we are a single income family and we coped just fine when No. 2 came along. If you are entitled to Family Tax Benefit then that goes up a bit, you will get the baby bonus so that is like a form of paid maternity leave and can help with costs, might also be entitled to the FTB supplment payment which is once a year after tax.
