Baby buy and buy

I overheard an expectant couple talking as they worked through their lengthy baby registry.

“These baby companies are just like airlines. Buying the basic is just the beginning. It’s the extras that get you.”

This couple was right. Although the birthrate is shrinking, spending on babies is ballooning.

Parents in the US now spend an estimated $12,000 on their babies during Year One.
