I'm curious ... a few weeks ago, AnKa I think it was, said monthly expenses for a new baby don't really amount to that much; I think I remember reading it was only ~$30/month or so. (Sorry if I'm not remembering the OP or amount correctly ... does anyone else remember this??)
At any rate, just read in a post below (which asked how worried people are about the economy), Mrs Manners noted that they have about $3K worth of expenses per month "with the nanny, diapers, formula, clothes and any savings for ds."
A HUGE difference. Anyone else care to weigh in as to how much money they spend on their new baby per month?
