In fact, one survey found that 70% of new mothers are more anxious about money since having a child. As soon as you walk into a baby store you are met with an astonishing array of products, it’s really no wonder so many parents-to-be end up with money worries.
Designing Your Dream Nursery Doesn’t Have to Cost a Fortune.
