As a single person planning to go through this without a partner, I need all the planning, advice, and support I can get. I love the way you “lay it on the line”. That’s what I needed to know, step by step. Thank you so much, love the site.

Ben330 – you’re right that contraception is prevention, however it is also something to use when you are preparing. Some couples plan to have a baby financially and emotionally, contraception reduces the risk of a surprise pregnancy.

Lucy – Thank you for your kind comment. I’m glad you enjoy the blog.

Jess – Prices do depend on the area you live in. The best thing to do is to have a budget and look for savings wherever possible.

I live in the Chicago suburbs so things are a little pricey here. We used Similac Organic Formula for our son, at about $28 a canister and we used about one a week. Your child would do nothing but eat if they were using $75-100 of formula a week!! I think the diaper estimate is a little high and intimidating also. Shop Walmart for diapers and formula, they have the best prices.

I just had a baby and its rough in the first year. Better be ready for anything.
