Ever since the arrival of Aden, we've spent quite alot of money on his clothes, diapers, formula milk, toys, stroller, bedding, baby bottles, monthly check-up and medication and etc etc... In fact, money already spent when I got pregnant (tried to give him the best when he was still in my womb ^^)
What I wanna say is baby stuff is really not cheap at all these days. I only got abit hands-me-down from friends so we have to buy most of the stuff. They say baby doesnt need much clothing as they grow up very fast but, how can you resist from buying? Baby clothes are so so cute! Especially the girl ones... hehe.
One thing we need to spend for sure is the formula milk, I think that's the most expensive thing. Aden is taking Dumex formula milk and a tin of 1.5kg cost about RM 120. He finishes a tin in about 2 weeks time =_= I think that's why breastfeeding is greatly encouraged, and that's also one of the reason I am still giving him breast milk, though not every meal.
Hubby and I are planning to open a bank saving account for Aden soon, I think it's good so that the money can be used in the future. I think very soon, we'll have to settle for his education, haha =D I'm not sure but my aunty actually told me to get Aden register in school earlier as this is the year of Dragon, many Dragon kids are expected. To me this seems like few more years to go and I don't see the need of it. I even thought may be she is abit exaggerate, but erm...... Let's not bother about it now, afterall Aden is only 3 months plus now ^_*
But anyway, I am thankful that we dont have to worry so much about financial for Aden. Of course I am trying not to over spoilt even though he is the first child. I believe early education is important =)
