How does or did it cost you to raise your newborn?

It cost us $400.00 a month, and that isn't including medical bills. How much does or did it cost you a month?

  • A month? After the initial cost of fabric to make diapers ($200), I probably spent $20/mo for clouthes, on average. That first month I spent more because I got a sling ($50) and a pump ($35)... but after that he really didn't need anything.
