Raising A Baby May Cost $45,000 More Than You Think, Here’s Why

A new study from NerdWallet reveals that new parents wildly underestimate what the first year of parenthood will cost them. Of the expecting parents NerdWallet surveyed, 54% believe the first year of their baby’s life will cost about $5,000, and 18% think the first year will only cost them $1,000. Unfortunately, that estimate is off base by many thousands of dollars.
