Miss out on being a teenager and making unforgettable memories

Total Expenses
Costs of later months will be less expensive because you won't need to buy new big ticket items (i.e. crib, car seat, stroller etc.)
Still need to buy diapers and clothing because baby is growing in size
At 5 months he's starting to eat solids
New foods= more MONEY $$
Two other common problems at this age, eczema and food allergies
This could result in visits to the pediatrician/medication = more MONEY $$$
At 8 months somebody's going to be CRAWLING himself into some trouble, better get your running shoes on
injuries might result in unwanted expenses
At this period of your baby's development he or she will be able to start eating all the basic fruit, vegetable, meat, and grain/cereal products
This means more time preparing meals and more $
Your baby at this time will also gain the strength to stand on its own and even take a few steps with the help of you or any near by furniture
Be cautious a baby at this age has little balance and is easily knocked over
Make sure corners are padded and other hazardous things are out of reach
Same monthly expenses (diapers, food, daycare, etc)
