Like… a lot cheaper. Heck, we’ve even told you where to find them for free. And as a recent study shows, (written about by The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy here) men involved in a pregnancy (a.k.a baby daddies) totally underestimated the cost of childcare. As a result they changed their behavior afterward to increase their efforts to avoid future unintended pregnancies.
Learn from their mistakes before you make the same one yourself – don’t have a kid right now. There are things you can do like not have sex, wait to have sex, always have condoms, use condoms, and use them correctly, talk to her about trying out a hormonal birth control. Seriously all of these are easier (AND SEXIER) than buying diapers.
Waaaaaaaay down the road you can have kids and dress them up like you, and teach them to hate the same sports teams you hate, and post funny youtube videos of them, and buy them the sweetest friggin’ Halloween costumes ever made. But for now talk to your partner(s) about what you’re going to do to prevent getting preggers. Because seriously, who can afford that?
