How much a baby costs

Look, they seem to affording this just fine.

Raising a baby to age 18 will cost you about $226,000 in this modern world, according to a report released this week by the US Department of Agriculture, which, as we all know, is responsible for growing babies. A quarter million dollars for years and years of jam hands seems intense. Although it doesn’t factor in college which, let’s be honest, if you have a kid you best damn well be ready to pay for as well.

One parenting expert told The Week the numbers are “depressing” while another said it’s a bargain “considering the blessing a child is for a family.” The price does not include the cost of the jail time for punching that dude in the face either.
