Financial tips for new fathers

Your priorities shift from when you were a man to now when you become a dad. Here are the few things that prepare you for a perfect fatherhood.

As a new father, right now your only priority could be attending to your baby’s wellbeing and safety. In all this, it can be easy to lose sight of the bigger picture. But here are some simple ways you can ensure a bright future for your child without compromising on a safe and happy childhood. 


What you are doing: Splurging on expensive baby clothes  - Customized car seats, infant bathtubs, strollers, diaper bags, and cribs look extremely cute. But they are also expensive and they can only be used for a limited time.  

What you could be doing: Understand the difference between the items that your baby requires and those that aren’t. Buy only what is necessary, and opt for the more affordable options. You can also borrow some things to reduce expenses. The money you save, can instead be used for your baby’s vaccinations or on other medical expenses. It could also come in handy if you need to take a voluntary sabbatical.
