Hello! I don't normally post here, but I thought you ladies could help me out.
I work in Baltimore County, and DH works in Howard County. However right now we live 1+ hours away (in PA). We are looking to relocate to Howard County area, posisbly Anne Arundel or Carroll County. But I think we'd really like to be in Howard County so we are close to both of our jobs!
I know the cost of child care varies by location and by center. I hate that centers don't post their rates online! I know daycare is going to be alot more in MD then what we are currently spending in PA.
What center do you use and how much do they charge?
DD is 9 months old now, and will likely be a year when we move.
The "fancy" center by me charges less than $200/week ($800/month) for infants (and that includes diapers and meals - not inclusding formula or breast milk).
I currently pay a family member $150/week ($600/month) and I provide everything.
A friend of mine sends her DS to Goddard and she told me (per month) :

Got pregnant on our own without Fertility Treatments - January 2016! Thank you snow storm Jonas!
At 20-week anatomy scan found IUGR (Intrauterine Growth Restriction), and very low Amniotic Fluid. Now, I'm High Risk and have weekly ultrasounds to monitor fluid and growth. If baby runs out of room or is too growth restricted, they will deliver ASAP. My current goal is to make it to 28 weeks!
