Hi, Expecting out first in late March 2007. I was just trying to run through some scenerios to figure out what can expect to add to our budget for expenses once the new baby is here. Hope to stay at home
(It does not include any regular budget items, just things I that are baby related :)

Per Month: @
(increase in health insurance) premium: 100 month @
diapers $100
breastfeeding costs $25? (I have no idea!)
copays/rx - to be safe $100
new life insurance 100
baby toys and books/clothes/stuff (ex more laundry detergent etc) 100
increase in food costs 100
baby college fund 100
comes to: $725 a month

I know I am off, because it all shouldnt be $100! per category I wouldn't think but just wanted to get some insights so I can tweak it
