6 Ways to Save Money With a Baby

Too often, it feels as if you cannot possibly have a baby and still save money at the same time. However, this does not have to be true. There are ways to save money with a baby that will let you experience the best of both worlds and help you support your growing family well into the future.

Save more with coupons
Start planning well before the baby arrives. Look out for special offers, free samples, and money off coupons and online offers. Many stores and manufacturers will provide samples of their products, from diapers to creams, to encourage you to buy from them.

Free feeding first
Breastfeeding is not only the healthiest option in most cases, but also the cheapest way to feed your newborn. You only have to look at the price of powdered baby milk to begin to see the savings; not to mention the additional costs of bottles and sterilizers.

Cost effective clothing
It can be tempting to buy a whole new wardrobe for your baby. However, keep in mind that they will spend most of their first few months in simple onesies, and they are most likely to outgrow other clothing before they get a chance to wear it.

Get borrowing
Borrowing baby items that you only need for a short period of time (like baby baths and car seats) can save you tons. If you have friends or family who have small children, chances are they have some gently used items you can borrow for a short time.

Make your own baby food
When it comes time, prepare your baby’s food at home with a food processor instead of buying pre-packaged baby food jars. Use fresh fruits and veggies to create healthy food and freeze any leftovers for later.

Don’t buy too much
While it can be tempting to plan ahead and get all of your baby supplies ready before the little one arrives, this can blow your budget big time. Waiting until you figure out which products work best for your child can save you from a lot of wasted products and money.
