Can you afford to have kids?

This question is daunting. It overwhelms newly-weds who have limited financial capabilities but are consciously aware of the expenses to expect and raise a kid. To name a few, they include gynae visits, nannies, childbirth, insurance, diapers, milk powder, toys, pram, car seat and supplements. These are to be incurred by expecting parents while they manage the ongoing increase in living costs.

So, in response to this, should newly-weds:

– Have kids later or don’t have kids at all?
– Seek additional financial support from their respective parents?
– Compromise on the above expenditures?

Here, there is option 4.
