Bringing up Baby: Costs & Habit Insights of the American Mom from zulily.com
In celebration of moms this Mother’s Day, online retailer zulily is honoring new moms nationwide by taking a closer look at something they all can relate to –budgeting for all things baby!
Read on here for some of the survey insights they found regarding spending and saving habits when preparing for baby:
· With annual childcare costs hovering around $6,000, it’s crucial to choose (and pay!) the right person to watch your kids. In our survey Julia Roberts was voted the top celeb moms would let babysit, but Kim Kardashian didn’t make the cut and was only selected by 3% of respondents.
· Raising kids can get pretty pricey, so it’s no surprise a third of mothers surveyed said they’d compete in a monthly random dance battle (32%) in exchange for free baby gear, attire, etc.
· Almost half of mothers surveyed (45%) said the most missed pre-mom indulgence is actually having a day off.
· 33% of moms agreed that the most common squabble couples have regarding new parenting is about money.
With all the above stats, it’s no wonder moms everywhere are always on the lookout for smarter ways to spend on baby, and online retailer zulily is dedicated to helping their plight by serving up fresh, unexpected items for baby and the whole family, in fact, just in the last year customers have saved millions of dollars on baby gear items. Here’s the breakdown:
· Savings on baby blankets: over $2.4M
· Total savings on key items needed to set up a nursery: over $2.6M
· Savings on all baby feeding supplies: over $4.5M
