From the Back Cover
An indispensable money-saving guide for every young family
Cots and car seats, nappies and nurseries, babygros and booties... having a baby can be a costly business. In fact, according to a recent survey, the cost of raising a child is a staggering £186,000, pricier than buying a house.
But, having a baby need not mean financial ruin. Elen Lewis'sThe Resourceful Mum's Handbook provides timely practical and down-to-earth advice on what to buy and what not to buy, when it's worth splashing out on a cherished item and where you can cut corners and make savings - from pregnancy, through to birth and the newborn, and beyond.
Packed with inspiring and creative ideas for things to make at home, tried and tested family recipes and handy tips, as well as activities and outings for you and your baby that won't cost a penny, The Resourceful Mum's Handbook is a must-have for every young family.

Several of the baby books I've read have been quite patronising. But I would say this hits the spot perfectly.
I'm very into making my own things anyway, so loved the projects in the book, and the advice is well-presented, and lots of reviews and advice are quoted from Mums' experience, not just one person's opinion.
Useful from pregnancy, through birth and beyond; I find it reassuring when worried about something - it's usually covered in this book!
