Lets hope it takes a day extra!!

It's the due date that matters, not the date of arrival. The same thing happened a couple of years ago about changes to SMP - and the due date was used then to assess eligibility, not the actual date....

bad luck, chocolate lover. Could you ask your friendly midwife to alter your DD by 1 day? I'm sure he/she would oblige ...

If you read the post you would realise this grant is NOT needs tested, its available to anyone who is expecting a baby, whether they are 14 and on benefits or 35 and not. Next time actually read the post.

I was 18 when I gave birth to my son, yeah but no but, and I haven't swapped him for a westlife CD, it was a greenday cd actually yeah but no but. :whistling:

Seriously though, children are hard enough to look after without worrying about money to buy them things. I know someone who's actually become worse a parent the older she's grown- she was 29 when she first gave birth so there's no real excuse! I hope that I do a good job with my son,and although I'm 21 and my son will be 3 on New Year's Eve, I feel like I look after him a lot better than mothers who are older than me (I went past the school at 3pm when they were picking up their and I'm not joking I saw a woman who was in her 30s with a can of carling picking her kids up, and another woman she was with told the drunk mother's kid to F off- he was about 5!!!!! I swear on my son's life it happened, I was so shocked!!!)

So yeah to sum it all up- please think before you say anything because we're not all as bad you.

My baby is due 22nd March!!! This is sooo typical of my luck!! Oh well a great thing for those who are eligible for it!! The cost of a new baby is extortionate and thats just buying nappies never mind the rest!!

Asda's own nappies are really good, I only discovered them when my son's in the size 6 but they're like huggies quality which I think are better than pampers lol.

Just to point out, this offer isnt just to those people who are getting handouts, its for working mothers/families too no matter what the earnings.

Banned? Surely not - maybe it didn't need said, maybe it could have been dressed up differently, but it is fairly accurate - perhaps if we were experiencing a severe case of population decline, then encouraging reproduction could be understood.

you will just have to wait till you have your next baby lol! I've got 2 little ones & definately not having any more so doesn't help me out but fantastic for all the people it does help as your correct........ so expensive! :-D
#16
This is my second and definately my last......!!! There is a 6 year gap and I kinda forgot just how much everything costs!!
#17
I know having a baby is tough financially but giving some one £190 does not make them a better parent, I understand they can choose it to spend it on anything so seems like a waste of taxpayers money.
#18
the girl just wanted to say her point and i agree each person has the rite to a comment without judgement,
#19
I agree it would be better given as vouchers for nappies, clothing or food. It would then save the Miss Pollards going out and buying cans of super brew and fags!
#20
yep but come on who is going to get pregnant for a £190 cheque. silly comments i think..
im due may 12th so thankyou for this. :)
#21
worth getting pregnant for!

Well of course if these children go on to get meaningful jobs an pay more taxes then this will all of been worthwhile. That would of course be dependant on the standard of education that they receive......of wait...:whistling:

Personally I think that taxing worldwide earnings for all U.K CITIZENS (not just residents) would be a better solution!
#25
good find...mines due in july...that will be perfect for a ''cough cough'' nintendo wii.....for the baby of coarse:p and the wife to lose the belly bulge:whistling:
#26
Im sorry you cant have kids to make such silly comments. children are hard work! certainly not something id consider for £!90. My baby is long awaited and we are all very excited and the money will go towards a pushchair - as these are very expensive. I agree too many people on too many benefits, but helping a working family like mine through a very expensive time will be very well recieved.
#27
It worries me as the Government usually take away one benefit to give another, I wonder what is for the chop to pay for this! (family allowance).
#28
Havent they already chopped family allowance? only gets paid till the child is 11 now or am i wrong?
#29
Not everybody who have children at a young age are irresponsible or Vicky pollard like, I hate people who think they can judge everyone.
Me & my Girlfriend have a little boy & my Mum brought me up on Her own so I know how hard it must be for some single parents, just because we pay are taxes doesn't mean we can dictate how other people live there lives!
It seems some simple minded people judge everybody based on a few idiots highlighted by the media.
Voted hot by the way :thumbsup:

i agree i have 3 liitleuns and every penny goes on em but there are lots out there tht will use tht money 2 buy themselves clothes and makeup and things so vouchers for nappies and food would be more ideal!

one of the leaders of the french revolution is attributed with saying:
"i may disagree with everything you say but i would die to protect your right to say it."

now im not saying i would DIE for this posters rights but being banned for not being strictly PC is a tad Orwellian imho.

Well Im sure there are lots of women out there that are poorly educated or in a bad situation and think having children is a easy option... You will see them screaming their heads off at ur local bus stop whilst smoking a fag over their latest new addition but there are lots of us earning living and bringing up a family that still struggle at times so for me the £190 will be well received.
I do feel your very keen to judge and in way for me thats like racism or sexism - not acceptable. There are always people we dislike or dont approve of but walk a mile in their shoes eh? Its christmas and if u cant try and kerb your critism then thats sad..
Im sure if you look at your life you would see your not perfect, none of us are.
I live in a council flat and im proud of it - my home is beautiful, my children are well behaved and both me and my finacee are tax payers so when you see me pushing my pushchair dont jump to conclusions! Im a good mother and I pay my taxes!
Not being argumentative, well maybe I am but its nearly Christmas! :)

Well said :thumbsup:
#36
Thankyou. :) Im pregnant so maybe im hormonal! lol! but theres too many people willing to run others down!
#37
By family allowance, I presume you mean child benefit. This hasn't been scrapped when your child turns 11, it continues upto a child's 19th birthday as long as in full time (non higher) education. I think you're getting this mixed up with when a single parent's eldest child turns 11, the parent is now signed off income support and must start actively seeking work and claim job seekers allowance. This is a recent change so it might be where you're getting the age 11 bit from. I thought it was useful to clear that confusion up.

It is not means tested, that is the point! I am 30 and work damned hard thank you very much and am pleased the Government is actullay doing something that benefits everyone. If you had any idea how expensive it is to have children, no matter what age you are, then you would not make a stupid comment like that.
#39
Ive got my midwife this wk and due mid april so im def asking.. Knew about it anyway but think alot of people dont...
Im glad for a change i am eligable for something even thou i have a good job and good income!
#40
Well, im 36 and have been married 13 years, already have two children aged 11 and 6 and my third (and definitely last) baby is due may 12th,so this money will come in really handy for my boob job/tummy tuck fund!....:whistling:

All joking aside, having just looked at the price of cots, £190 whilst a welcome amount certainly isnt enough to go through the rigamarole of childbirth and baby rearing for!
