Anyw advice would be of help.

I don't think its crazy expensive until they get into school. I found out babies are actually pretty cheap. I would say you could get by on $200 a month for a baby. It can be expensive to get everything you need to get started, but it depends on what you feel you need. I got everything possible for my baby before he was born and it turned out he didn't even use a lot of it. Plus you can get a lot of stuff used and that cuts back the cost. Plus shopping places like Costco or Sam's Club is a must, where you can buy diapers, formula, paper towels ( you'll need a lot =) and stuff like that. That kind of stuff can get expensive if you don't buy it in bulk. But I'm telling you if you have one kid you're gonna want to have two so plan your budget to have two kids in the future. =)
