how much money, if any, did you start saving when you found out you were pregnant? about how much did you spend on baby necessities? my boyfriend starts his full-time job in july, when our baby is due. he'll be making about $1500 a month. last month, he said he would start saving $300 every month for the baby. now, he said he's only putting away $1000 and that money should be enough to cover initial expenses. i feel like he's being really selfish and he doesn't realize how much a baby can really cost. should i leave him be or continue to try to make him see that $1000 might not be enough?
