The cost of raising a child is estimated at £10,800 per year ($15,223) - including childcare.
The average salary in the UK is £31,461. ($44,000)
That means, on average, a child will cost you over 1/3 of your income.
Now I'm no economist, but adding a one-third financial liability to your life is something to seriously think about.
This got me thinking...
What could you have 'instead' of a baby?
