i agree that babies are only as expensive as you make them, but the older they get the more they want and need my daughter isnt even 2 yet and taking her shopping is like shopping with paris hilton lol

don't forget the baby activities though....the Jo Jingles/Tumble Tots/Mother and Toddler groups, they can all add up as well...

But 60 to 100 should be fine.
Also you will need bibs, you will need spoons and bowls and icecube trays (my son was home made fooded too!!!)

Babies are the cheap bit...the first year is cheap....after that it costs a fortune....

there is a local baby signing thing round the corner that is 5 per session (about 1 1/2 to 2 hrs and also china can help entertain - if sleeping is entertainment...

Anyway after the first yr i should be working again and bringing more money in

Babies cost far more than we could ever afford I can see my OH telling me for the rest of our lives that "we'll discuss it when we can afford it"

Seriously, though, all the best and don't be disheartened if it doesn't happen straight away. My ex-SIL spent years trying to have a baby and had two attempts at IVF. Eventually, she gave up and used the rest of the money to buy an expensive and flashy car... two months later she was pregnant and had to sell the car for something more "family" orientated!

i know it can take a while esp as i have just come off the pill so it can take while for the body to adjust to that...

everything crossed (well not everything might make it a bit difficult

hence the reason i will be using protection for the first few months so that whilst my body gets back in to the natural swing of things i dont get pregnant, then in march/april we will start trying.... that way if i do catch straightaway i wont be more than 4 months pregnant on the wedding day!
thats if mother nature agrees to the plan!

ps have been on pill for 8yrs
