What to Know When You Have an X-Year-Old...

By Allison KadeFeb 11, 2020

During the first hazy year of your baby’s life, your world is all about bottles and burping and Frida’s snot sucker. Which is so different from the year that follows—full of talking and walking and a developing little personality. 

And having a 2-year-old is very different from that, as is a 3-year-old and on up. By the time you’ve got a 10-year-old on your hands, you’re already staring down the barrel of puberty and middle school.

Of course, each new stage requires a different financial approach. With an infant, your focus will be on adjusting your finances to accommodate a new life. With a toddler, you’ll need to start thinking about school, camp and other expenses. If you have another child, the equation changes yet again.

We’re here to help. 

That’s why we created eleven different guides for what you need to know, from your baby’s first year to when your little one turns 10. Check out what to expect for each year, from how your child will be changing to how your finances can adapt.

Want an email instead?

Tell us your kid's birthday, and we'll send you an email every year with what you should know, plus a quarterly financial to-do list.
