I always hear people talking about the costs of having children.
What specifically do they mean?
I just had my first (almost 6 months) and we're considering having #2 somewhat soon.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not naive about how much it is to raise a child, its just that it hasnt been too bad so far (and we had to deal with some medical issues recently).
Maybe it's because we had family/friends give us pretty much all the clothes/toys/furniture we need and havent had to buy much so far. Plus I breastfeed so I dont have to worry about formula.
We have and I know we will continue to need to spend money on several things but it just hasn't been as bad as the "horror stories" I've heard about how expensive it is to raise children.
Please tell me your experiences.....

Wait until they are a little older and you'll have lessons, school book costs, school supplies, field trips. It's amazing how much money your going to spend sending your child to school.
