NatWest have recently created a handy tool called the Cost of Raising a Child Calculator. It allows you to enter in your own costs per week across a variety of different items giving you an estimate as to how much your little one will cost you over the span of a year. You can even check your spending against the national average to give you a better idea of whether you’re overspending or whether you’re already budgeting well!
The tool covers ages from newborn right up until their 18th birthday, so it’s perfect for both new parents and existing parents alike. It’s a great way to help manage your money and estimate how much you may need to save for the future.
After using the tool, for those of you who are expecting the arrival of a little one, or simply know someone else who is, here’s your chance to win either a baby boy or baby girl hamper. The hamper will contain useful items for the baby as well as some well-earned goodies for Mum and Dad!
