How much does it cost to raise a baby in different parts of Europe?
Closed

It is said that children are expensive. Cradles, prams, bottles, clothes, nappies, and daycare among others expenses. According to a study, the most expensive stage is the first 3 years of life which can cost up between £4500 and £6300 alone! Additionally, just nappies can set you back between £50 and £100 per month.

Although the comparisons are not fair, if comparing ourselves to other European neighbors and those in other countries like the United States, it is not so bad. In the US, just the birth can cost up to $15,000 USD in medical expenses.

Another important expense is toys, an essential element for the sound cognitive development of children. This expense could reach up to £450 per year in some of the most expensive countries (like Germany, Switzerland and the United Kingdom).

Later, in adolescence, things do not get better: increased expenditure on leisure, travel, more clothes; all this without counting private education and other costs.

In total, it is estimated that the total cost of parenting from birth to 18 years of age is around £70- 100,000 on average, and still many parents will still say that having children has been the best thing he or she has ever done.

What do you think about the cost of raising children? Do you think it's worth it?

Do you think you will have spent similar amounts on your children's upbringing?
