Money matters for you and your baby

There is a lot to think about when you become a parent, so it’s good to have some money set aside for all those baby essentials. If you have to think about moving to new accommodation, there will be rent and bills to pay. You might be used to saving for the future but it is sometimes a challenge to make your money last!


What does your baby really need?

You might want to give your new baby everything, but if you don’t have much money, working out what you and your baby actually need is what’s important. Babies and small children don’t care if their buggy is not the top of the range or if you buy all their clothes in a second hand shop. You might be surprised to find that there is no shortage of baby clothes and other items thanks to your friends and family.

Let’s help you find the best options!

Our experienced staff can help you look at a realistic budget plan for when your baby comes along and during each stage of your baby’s life. A budget simply shows you the money you are getting in and how you are spending it. The Money Advice & Budgeting Service may be helpful in managing your money. A good way to save is through your local credit union. Whether it’s general information on social welfare entitlements, part-time employment or saving and budgeting options you can always talk to us!
