If you decide you’ll both work outside of the home, then start to plan for child care just like you would the delivery expenses. Do a couple of trial runs in your budget to see what amount you can make work for you and your family.

You could also be lucky enough to have parents who can help shoulder some of the responsibility and cost. You may be able to cover some of the cost with childcare vouchers. Otherwise, the chances are you will need to find a place for your child to be looked after when you’re not around. Traditional wisdom says a parent stays at home to raise their children because they can afford not to work. While this is still true for many families, the other side of the equation is also becoming true – some parents now choose to stay home because they can’t afford to work.. With the cost of daycare spiraling out of control, a lot of parents are finding out that after factoring in.

Partnered parents may consider coordinating flexible work schedules so that one parent is always available to watch your kids. If each parent can take a different shift, you can reduce the overall need for child care. 13.

Share child care. If you have friends who are also looking for child care, get together and form a nanny share. You hire one nanny to watch the kids from both.

  • What’s the point if you’re just going to be broke and struggling for decades? Why sentence to a kid to a hard life? There’s no nobility in poverty.

  • Another important point is that 3 kids is different than 2. I learned that very quickly. Three changes the family dynamics. I was able to work part time before baby 3 came along, now my husband works more hours and harder than ever, and I’m a full time mom of three. Much more challenging financially.

  • I will never have children, but I think parents don’t really think about cost when having a kid. I live in the UK where healthcare is all free, but kids are still expensive with school, college and the rest. Houses here are also much smaller

  • most idiots call Dave Ramsey when they are already fvcked!! Ramsey ain’t a Genie in a bottle. Oh, and then he wants you to eat “beans and rice” and give 10% of whatever you make to a worthless cult. Whatev’!

  • I have never understood why women think they should have multiple children! Look it up, kids cost $225-250k till the age of 18. Kids are now staying with their parents into their early 20s. These idiots shouldn’t have ANY kids…

  • No, there isn’t. And we aren’t going to have any. Instead of spending $1500 a month in daycare, then afterschool care, saving for college, etc., we will pay our house off early (hopefully in 3 years before husband turns 40), dump all of our money in retirement accounts and travel. Then at age 50 we can start gearing up for retirement and living off rental income and working part time in Nevada somewhere!

  • Before bringing children into today’s world… totally debt free, have a minimum of $ 10,000 in savings between both of you! If you don’t… prepared to suffer….until you win the lottery! Sounds harsh…sorry…but life in today’s world is tough. Be prepared or life’s hardships will follow you before you know it. (from someone who has learned and still paying the hard way). Best wishes and blessings to you!

  • Another “Woman needs to get a REAL job” situation. I feel like I see a lot of women depending on their men for income and then calling it “ours” and using words like “we.” Why is it women don’t contribute anymore? I’m a woman btw…

  • Common sense, exactly. Look at your circumstances and see what would be best for your family and especially your marriage. I fully believe children are a blessing at all times, whenever they arrive. But should you be faced with the choice, one should absolutely look at what’s going on. We can’t expand our family with the small home we have. We also can’t save up for life’s unexpected emergencies during labor/delivery/post natal periods, etc for now, so it’s best to wait a reasonable amount of time for use to get a better foothold on finances. It’s just the smart thing to do.

  • This girl is really not smart. It’s obvious that she has baby fever. Control your emotions think logically. You shouldn’t have baby’s unless you have money to afford them. I respect women’s rights to have a baby when and if they want but for god sake think logically.

  • So how these broke ass family’s out here have 3-4 children and I can’t afford 1 with 2 great income streams. Maybe my taxes are helping out. Your welcome broke people.

  • I got another reason not to have a baby…world has an unnecessary amount lot already…no thanks…plus I will share with my wife…

  • Charging less than $750 a month to watch her cousin’s two kids? That’s cheap anywhere, in SD it’s a steal. Good deal for her cousin, but she needs to put her own family first.

  • Kids bring joy and happiness but they also bring headaches and problems. Babies don’t cost much to cloth and feed in you are sensible but I do agree people should hold off having children until they are financially stable. But you never know what’s around the corner.

  • Pitiful $43k combined income that would be pretty bad for a single person and CC debt/leases with no end in sight? Yeah, have a baby!

    Why would she even call?!

  • When you are asking a complete stranger when you should have kids. What you need to do is ask. Why cant i manage my own life with the simplest questions.

  • You actually lose money driving for uber when you factor in the fast aging of your car and the rapid depreciation. This lady doesnt even own her car. $430 a month for 3 years and she wont even own it in the end. She might as well just have bought one brand new. Even that would be a better option. At least you would own it in the end. She wants to help her husband so she making movements without thinking. She’s actually making their finances worse.

  • It seems to me that the wrong time would be when both parents are not on board with it. Give your third child the gift of being planned and wanted. The stress young children get blasted at them by stressed out financially desperate parents is to me the biggest financial argument against her plan. Cloth diapers wont prevent that. -From a thirde child who was unplanned and resented by Dad for it.

  • Dave Ramsey will tell you to get rid of a good car and lose money on it and then tell you it’s ok to have kids while in debt. Seems logical.

  • the richest people on earth either didn’t get married ever or in later years
    didn’t have kids or waited
    or got alot of divorces
    work comes before family

  • Just the first year, the average family will spend $12,000 to $21,000!!!!!!!!!!!!!! on child-related expenses. The cost of raising a child today is $233,610 – excluding the cost of college – for a middle-income family, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Most people cannot afford to have a child, yet they breed like rabbits. Insanity.

  • Here’s when you have your third child when you can afford it I’m tired of seeing people with more kids and they can afford if you’re struggling now with two kids 1/3 will not make it any better balls you will do is hurt the kid and the two you already have

  • Dave is wrong here. God already said in His word when it is prudent to have a family; when you are prepared. That might be financially, emotionally, spiritually or any way that you need to prepare. The Bible says Proverbs 24:27  Prepare thy work without, and make it fit for thyself in the field; and afterwards build thine house.

  • I found Dave a few years ago and although I haven’t ALWAYS followed his advice when I should I have always remembered to NEVER add a car payment to my life. seeing people I know struggle to make their car payments reminds me that I should be happy with my 2009 car lol.

  • Wait a minute…he makes 34K and she makes 9k a year? In Southern California? With kids? Are they living in a shopping cart? How is this even possible?

  • There will never be a perfect time, but like Dave said, after you have no debt an emergency fund are married and older than 20, you’re prob pretty safe.

  • it don’t help out that you using your lease car for Uber cuz if you can’t buy out that car at the end of the terms you going to be owing a lot of money for going over your miles.

    Here’s my thing my opinion stop having babies enjoy your spouse enjoy what kids you have now no more kids

  • They cost money buy not THAT much. Don’t let that scare you into not having the greatest joy. Think about it. how do all these Latina mamas have 5 kids? Or the welfare lady with 4 kids and all different dads?

  • When you have the money for it, and the space for it. But, having a baby isn’t for everybody. The world population is huge, and you’re under no obligation to add to it.

  • One does not need formula till around 10 months and so milk of the mother that is a God send should be given the the child. Formula is for your chemistry experiments:)
