Child Care itself can cost $5,000+ per year, or even much more if you plan on using a nanny. This is a big cost that can be reduced significanty if one of the two parents is able to stay at home and raise the child during their years before school.

Your best bet is to sit down and put a pencil to your current (pre-baby) income and expenses, and factoring your new estimates with these added expenses. Everyone's expenses will vary depending on income and specific circumstances, and the estimates provided above, courtesy of the USDA should be used only as a starting point to give you a rough estimate of many of the things you could face cost-wise.

To help offset some of the expenses, and if your budget enables you to, you should consider buying products like baby diapers, formula, bottles, and other supplies in bulk from wholesale suppliers. They usually offer discounts for buying more of the same product in a single purchase. For some of the larger, one time purchases, you might also be able to find discount cribs and bedroom sets by browsing your local paper's classifieds section. For recurrent items though, such as the food and diapers it can add up to quite a savings, if you can make those purchases from online wholesalers.
