Having a child is a joyful but expensive endeavour. To ensure that you’re able to provide your baby with everything he or she needs, and avoid the stress of financial turmoil, you should be in as financially sound a position as possible.
But how do you know when you’re ready, financially, to add another member to the household?
A child will mean greater strain on your finances and a greater part of the household income dedicated to day-to-day living expenses. Any period of reduced income will be harder to tolerate, so having a job that you don’t intend to leave in the near future and in which you’re confident that you’ll hold your position and receive a steady income is important.
You should also do up a budget for all your expenses, including estimates of all the new baby-related expenses. Make sure that your household income is enough to cover these expenses while still having a little wiggle room, and still being able to put some away for savings.
Little or No Personal Debts
The best situation to be in, financially, when bringing a new baby into the family, is to be free of debt, or at least have your debts under control and be confident about your ability to make any required payments.
If you’re struggling with debt, there are lots of options you can explore to clean up your financial situation before the new bub arrives. It’s a great idea to seek professional help to best explore the options suited to your individual circumstances and deal with your debt in the more effective and efficient means possible, leaving more time, energy and money for decorating the nursery and buying tiny socks.

Being able to meet all of your financial obligations is great, but in addition you should also have a bit of a nest egg saved away to cover any unforeseen circumstances. If you’re living to a tight budget it can be difficult to deal with emergency situations where you need to come up with a large amount of money in a short amount of time. Always be prepared for the unexpected and make sure you’ve got some savings to lean back on before you enter into parenthood.
While expensive, having a baby is a joy that everybody should get to experience in their lifetime, if they so choose. It’s important to be wise as a parent and ensure that you can provide your child with all the essentials, so make sure that your finances can handle the strain before you take the plunge. The best part is: it’s simple to do so, and if you’re having any trouble, there’s plenty of help available. Once your finances are in check, all that’s left to do is sit back and enjoy the excitement and reward of raising a child of your own.

Every child would be as happy as the little boy if they get a toy car as big as this. Agree? We got this really
cool car toy for the little boy when he was a year-old. He fits in perfectly and enjoys every minute in it. He would honk it all the time too that he’s “driving” it then laugh happily.This car also comes in different color, blue, red and black plus this gray that we got for him. Since it is rechargeable, we do not need to buy batteries all the time. Practical and full of fun, I’d say!
His shirt says it all “I’m the center of the Universe.” It is true, for now, the little boy is where my universe revolves. I have been a full time hands-on mom some months now and I really am enjoying it. On the side I help hubby with the photography business but most of the time I get to spent the whole day with our little angel.
Everyday, I learn new things as a mom, I also get to know him better. In a way too I realize how important of an inheritance I have been given. An inheritance that I need to cultivate and love so come the right time, I’d here the Lord say, “you did good!”
Psalms 127:3 Sons are a heritage from the LORD,
children a reward from him.
Lovely smile? Babies look cute when they smile, teethless or not.
How do you protect then that smile? The best way to give your children’s teeth a healthy start is to begin dental care early in life, it goes for us too haha.
* Visit the dentist for regular checkups. Set up an appointment within six months of the eruption of a child’s first tooth, but no later than the first birthday. Routine exams, cleanings and fluoride treatments can catch problems early before they get worse and require significant care.
* Guard against tooth decay by clearing your baby’s mouth within a few days of birth and wiping your baby’s gums with a damp washcloth or gauze pad after every feeding. This will help remove plaque.
* Don’t allow your child to breast-feed for long periods of time. Tooth decay can develop if you allow your baby to nap or sleep at night with a bottle of milk, formula, sugar water or fruit juice.
* Encourage your child to drink from a cup by age 1.
* Discourage frequent use of a training cup.
* For older kids who play sports or even those who ride a scooter or bicycle, mouth protectors can provide important protection. Your dentist may be able to make a better-fitting mouth protector than those supplied in stores.
* Know what to do if your child has a dental emergency: If a tooth is knocked out, rinse off the root if it’s dirty but don’t scrub it or remove attached tissue fragments. If possible, gently insert and hold the tooth in its socket; if that’s not possible, put the tooth in a cup of milk and get to the dentist right away.
Pediatricians estimate that somewhere in the neighborhood of 18 percent of children between the ages of two and six suck their thumbs. Why? Various explanations have been suggested, but most experts agree that thumb sucking calms and comforts the child.
My son has the habit whenever he feels sleepy. Many would say that children who thumb suck are behaved. In a way it could be true, since they get comfort from it, they stay put and busy themselves in the process.
It may take a child years to stop this habit, but never scold him or her for doing so…he or she will later on stop, I know my little boy will too.
