If you're thinking about adding a new member to your family, you already have a million and one things to think about—but it's important to consider the financial effects your little one will have so you can catapult into planning mode.

Total cost for the first year of your baby's life: $31,833.58

Wow!  That's a lot of money!  Does that seem like a fair estimate to you?

That does seem like a lot of money! I don't think that's realistic for my family. Really I think it is all about how you live your life and there are so many things that go into the equation- child care being one of them.
