There’s so much planning to do when baby is on the way. There are names to pick out, a room to decorate and, of course, a budget to make. But shelling out for a new addition goes beyond stocking the nursery. Plenty of other ongoing costs can add up quickly, like childcare, health insurance and starting a college savings plan. That’s why we created this handy costs calculator to help you estimate your added expenses for baby’s first year. Keep in mind, a lot will vary depending on where you live, but filling in the categories below will give you a good place to start.

There’s a lot to do (and learn!) before baby arrives. Don’t worry, The Bump and State Farm have plenty of resources to help you prepare your finances for your new arrival.
