Can anyone give me an idea of how much infant care costs? I have heard that in-home care can be cheaper, but nobody posts their rates online.
I am due in January, and up til now, I have assumed it would be most cost-effective for me to go back to work (though I would LOVE to stay at home). I realized that if it really is very expensive, it might make more sense for me to stay at home. I only make 25K a year, so it's not like we're rolling in money.
Any ideas about monthly cost? $500?$800?$1500? I have no idea.
