Budget for Baby
Financial education on baby expenses
Expecting a baby is an exciting time for a family. Planning for the financial impact of a baby is an important part of your preparations. Start your planning with our free Budget for Baby workshop.
Learn what expenses you should plan for and how to make wise financial decisions. We’ll talk about where you can you find the best prices on diapers and formula, and what baby furniture you will need. Get many more tips on how to save money. This class is a great way to meet other expectant Navy and Marine Corps parents.
At the workshop, you'll receive a Junior Sea Bag, which includes layette items like crib sheets, onesies, and a baby blanket handmade by a Society volunteer.
After the workshop
The workshop helps you develop a family budget. If you’d like more help to create a budget that works for you, make an appointment for financial assistance and counseling.
In the workshop, you’ll also learn how you may receive a visit from a Society nurse after your baby comes home. The nurse can answer any questions you might have about caring for your baby. Learn more about our visiting nurses.
