Kids are expensive!

Right from the word go, kids start costing you money. At the start it’s all the nappies and clothes that they go through at an alarming rate (unless, of course, you use the very budget-friendly cloth nappy option).

Need a great gift for a new mum? On a budget? Here are my top recommendations.
