The BBC reports on a survey by baby-milk maker SMA that suggests that kids cost an average of Â£1,560 before they’ve even been born.
As someone who has recently been through a child-birth (from a dad’s perspective, of course!), I can vouch for the fact that the large items such as prams and car seats can cost a pretty penny.
Luckily, the cost is reduced if you’ve already had a child, as stuff does tend to get handed down.
