Childcare is expensive!

Childcare is expensive! If the person is a stay at home mom then its fine. Medical aid?? Doctor bills?? Parents then have to also get life insurance.

Babies grow up and need an education (expensive) and tertiary education (EXTREMELY expensive). So no, children are expensive. You cannot just leave the 'gimmicks' out of the picture and assume that the baby is going to be cheap. Very few working moms can breastfeed. So formula is the next option.

Many moms cannot stay at mom and therefore has to pay for childcare.
